The Polytechnic Difference

Career Focus

A polytechnic university offers a comprehensive curriculum that prepares graduates for professional careers.

What this means to you: We offer a variety of majors with opportunities to work directly with employers to give you hands on experiences.

Students gain experience through:

  • Internships/Co-ops with companies
  • Class projects for industry
  • Guest lecturers from industry
  • Community projects and involvement

Applied Learning

A polytechnic university blends theory with practice to produce innovative solutions to real world problems.

What this means to you: You will be exposed to a general background in the processes and practices used in business, industry and education today. We offer students the opportunity to select a “concentration” or “emphasis” which includes course and lab work beyond the technical core of the program.

We will help you:

  • Prepare yourself for leadership and managerial opportunities
  • Position yourself for changing opportunities and challenges in the workplace
  • Increase your salary potential
  • Gain greater control over your future
  • Network with other professionals

Collaboration

A polytechnic university works closely with business, industry and other educational institutions to benefit students and grow the economy.

What this means to you:
We maintain and cultivate industry relationships which provide the best possible information, preparation and career planning for students.

We do this through:

  • Internships and Co-ops
  • Career Fairs
  • Industry Projects
  • Program Advisory Boards

We encourage our students to be active on the campus and in the community. You’ll gain a lot by participating in extracurricular activities: meeting new friends, having fun, building confidence and developing leadership skills.
