I really enjoyed most of my time at ITT.Electrical Engineering
I really enjoyed most of my time at ITT. I feel that I learned a lot. I received their 2 year and 4 year degree in Electronics Engineering Technology. I consider myself an Electronic Engineer. I currently work for as a field service technician and I make more then what Test Engineers do at a company I worked for previously.

All of the instructors were very knowledgeable and the small class sizes meant that you could get help from your instructor when you needed it. They also were very passionate about their field.

One thing to note that I did not understand when I started at the school was the difference between standard ?Electrical Engineering? and ?Electronics Engineering Technology?. Said Simply the ?Technology? means that it is more of an applied engineering degree in that there is much less theoretical and more practical. You do learn Calculus (Differential equations, Laplace Transforms, Fourier Series and what not) but not to the extent of a standard EE degree. They put more emphasis on practical circuit design and analysis keeping in mind that components are not perfect.

I had two final projects. One for my associates degree and another capstone for my Bachelors degree. The first was a fisher price house that I converted into a computer controlled house where all the lights, the security system and ceiling fans where controlled with a laptop computer. The second was a designed from scratch Walkie talkie. I designed the oscillator, mixer amplifiers and receiver circuits.

I do agree with others that you get out what you put into it. During my associate final project I had very little time and was unable to keep up with a Micro economics class very well. I almost failed that one. The A's aren't that easy...

However, ITT seems to have a bad reputation (which is upsetting) and that in my opinion is what is keeping me from securing a position in engineering so far. Also, I do agree that ITT is really expensive and a bit difficult to repay. Another thing to consider is that if you want to continue through to a master's program at another school, ITT is not ABET accredited. That is a regional accreditation compared to its national accreditation. Some schools will still accept you, others not so much. It (ABET) is also a requirement for becoming a licensed Professional Engineer if your into that sort of thing.

I have been told that they are working on getting ABET accreditation.
I don't think ITT was a bad choice for me, It wasn't the best choice either.

Question
It takes alot of hard work to beQuite BrightComputer Engineering
It takes alot of hard work to be sucessfull. working full-time and being a full time student was tuff but the help I received from the faculty and staff made a difference. they really cared about me and my personal situation. Career services had me fully prepared for my 1st interview in the IT industry and I'm now employed by one of the countries largest technology firms. The only regret I have is that I didn't do it sooner.
