Lake Washington Institute of Technology Reviews
I like the extreme hands-on atmosphere, my course had me working side-by side with the technology we studied. I was taking machines apart, putting them back together and learning every piece of equipment and the functions along the way. I believe this approach was instrumental in me becoming as proficient with computers as I am today. The faculty is very helpful and their overall goal is to help you succeed, this mindset enabled me to get my best GPA yet!
What I love about Lake Washington is that I get the education I want, and learn a trade that I'm excited about turning into a career. The Instructors are amazing, and go out of their way to help you succeed! I would highly recommend Lake Washington Institute of Technology to anyone!
LW Tech took care of its students during this coronavirus crisis and is working to have us graduate on time! They also gave $250 to each student quarantined using emergency funding.
