Oregon Tech is a very "interesting" college.AverageComputer Engineering
Oregon Tech is a very "interesting" college. Who is this school for exactly? It's for engineers and medical majors who want to go to a school, get a proper education and job, and get out. It's not for the person who likes to go out on the weekend, party, have a social life, etc... If you want a great job after you graduate and care very little about anything other than a good education, then this is the school for you. There's very little to do in town. the campus try's to cater to the students and give them something to do but for the most part if you can't find some form of entertainment in your dorm room, then this is not the school for you. the campus is small enough that you become pretty good friends with the people around you. the professors are stellar and really want you to succeed. Food on campus is a joke. there are some good places to eat off campus but if you like variety in what you eat then you better know how to cook for yourself.

I have attended both the Klamath and WilsonvilleBrightEngineering Department
I have attended both the Klamath and Wilsonville campus. If you have a choice, go with Wilsonville. It is set up well for non traditional students, like myself, and the programs (Specifically REE) are structured much better than those at Klamath. The instructors assign less busy work and more relevant projects. The students are more focused on academic success, and have a more positive attitude of being in school. This is more than likely related to the fact that Wilsonville is set up for non traditional students (mommy and daddy are not paying for their educations) so students seem to be more serious about learning. Also, Wilsonville is where the internships are! Overall, I wish I would have gotten into a program that is more developed, like the Mechanical or Electrical. I have seen several recent grads struggle trying to find work with the Renewable degree. Yes there are jobs in the field, but prior to the REE degree, these jobs go to mechanical and electrical degrees. Not to dog on the REE degree, it is really fun. But fun wont pay the bills.
