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!
Lake Washington Institute of Technology doesn't just make you feel like one student in a sea of thousands. This school employers great staff, advisers and educators, and you can see the affect this has on those that attend. For a smaller, more personable feel (with education as great as any university, but perhaps more opportunities for practical, hands on experience to help you in the workforce - LWIT might just be the school for you!
