ITT Tech Sees Increased Enrollment

Going back to school is a trend that continues for working adults who are looking to move forward in their career. Schools like ITT Technical Institute are seeing a great increase in enrollment, even thought the economy has still not recovered.

Riding a wave for much of the last decade, the business of adult education seems to be heading toward an all-time high as America's economy tries to avoid hitting an all-time low. And with more and more Oklahomans out of work, universities and vocational schools are in fierce competition for adults looking to change careers.

With five schools at its Oklahoma City campus " including computerized drafting and design, information technology, criminal justice, electronics technology and health sciences " ITT Technical Institute serves 330 students.

Paul Jackson, the dean at ITT Technical Institute in Oklahoma City, says the school specializes in helping already busy people change their lives.

"We have to take into account that they bring already a lifetime of experiences," Jackson says. "We're usually dealing with a person juggling a full-time job, family obligations and commitments, plus other work they do in the community. We are well aware that our students, their plate is already full, and we're putting an extra helping of things to do on there."

Students who earn their degree from ITT Technical Institute online will find programs that offer an integrated approach to learning. Students will have a standard academic curriculum balanced with applied learning concepts and practical study labs for the best all around results.
