From University of Advancing Technology

Welcome to UAT!

UAT is truly an environment of learning that’s a rare beauty—a college experience not found elsewhere.

We expect our students to outpace the learning and growth of University to propel UAT forward. This growth in advancing technology and higher education has been a multigenerational journey. As state and local colleges are just now climbing the mountain we climbed 20 years ago, we’re on to the next mountain—one that no one knows about yet. Just imagine.

We invite you to check out our campus, speak with our students and professors and discover the meaning behind our passion for leadership, friendliness, teamwork and having fun. We will always strive to do honorable work and own it without apology and unafraid of judgement. Join us and experience the UAT difference—our values are a way of life and the connective tissue among academia, industry and the technology leaders of tomorrow.

Sincerely,
Jason Pistillo, President

      The best years of my life, so far, had to be at the U.A.T., never have I been surrounded by people that shared my interests, and here I could fit in with people that pursed a similar degree for a platform I loved: video games. However, I would have some experience going in, or complete devotion to your classes, because there can be a lot to take in from the start, and you can be quickly lost if you slack. I'd recommend having money and scholarship saved up prior to attending this school so you can enjoy your time there and learn as attended with distraction. The attendees and teachers are down to earth, and it feels very personal like a family compared to a basic community college. Here you are treated as an adult.

      The school has an amazing atmosphere with lots of tech and resources that students can use in class. The students are very much alike and kind considering it's a tech college. The classes are very relevant to current times and are made to be as if you were in the industry you're going into. The teachers all have industry backgrounds which make them more qualified to teach us students about our field we want to enter with knowledge on how to help us succeed. With all of this access, the price of college isn't as bad as others around the area like ASU of U of A which makes it easier to afford and attend.
      Because of the pandemic, all classes are virtual, but the school has handled it wonderfully and the learning hasn't missed a beat! The teachers are super friendly and helpful as well!
