ITT takes advantage of people and preys on the less fortunate. They graduate sub-standard students. I would challenge anyone who hires to have one of the electronics graduates to try to use the equipment. I know they can't use it from experience. The students they graduate can't use a calculator and even worse they can't perform basic high school math [these are the graduates of this racketeering outfit: ITT I reference.

Either shut your doors or sell it to a more reputable and legitimate educational institution who focuses on not the bottom line of the investers but on real education.

ITT offers a college education for students who are often turned away by other universities.

Supply and Demand.

There are more people in America who desire to go to college than the current number of classrooms and professors will allow. As long as this trend continues...all for-profit education providers are positioned for future growth.

And I would like to be the Indianapolis Colts Quarterback. But I know Coach Dungy would surely let me know that I don't have the skills to be a high school quarterback. The human beings ITT is getting do not have the skills to go to a college. I would never consider anyone who graduated from ITT a college graduate! They can't add positive and negatives! I am not embellishing this fact.

As a supervisor, I would never hire another ITT graduate. I have fired all of them and filled my Test Floor with competent people.

Being from Carmel, IN [the home-base of this immoral outfit], Anonymous, I imagine you benefit greatly from ITT's wealth. It is the only way anyone could justify a RACKETEERING OUTFIT like ITT. If you had the opportunity to work around a group of the graduates, you would see what I mean immediately. I am just not shooting off my mouth...I am telling the truth and there are more that feel like me than you! There is a reason why Eli Lilly, Allison's, and any other large company there in Indianapolis doesn't hire the graduates. The product sucks!!! Sell the school to a real educational system where the bottom line is not the main goal!

The graduates can't use the equipment they are trained on! I challenge any employer to ask a electronics graduate to use their calculator, oscilloscope, and multimeter before you hire them. I know this first hand. I am shocked that a graduate showed me his degree and couldn't perform basic operations on the equipment. I fired him and won't interview one again. It's a waste of my time!

They charge the students out the wahoo and then the graduates aren't prepared. I think they are a modern-day racketeering outfit preying on people and should reconsider what they are in the business of!!!

If I were you, I'd learn how to spell before going on a diatribe about the academic abilities of others.

haha seriously ITT is a damn nationally accredted school they aren't up to par with the others. Regionally accreditation is the highest and all community colleges and universities have this. Actually nevermind please everyone go to ITT then I will have no competition and I will get all the good jobs because I actually go to a good school.

ITT TECH runs by used car salesmen and the most horrible management practices, most immoral and unethical they violate state and federal laws but they have the best lawyers on payroll (will get them out of any Contravention most of the time) I filed complaints with the attorney general and the Better Business Bureau and they both told me they couldn't do anything.
I filed complaints with the City Officials and after investigating they found no fault with ITT TECH. ITT is surely paying off any and every agency that could get them in troubles.
Who would have thought that an educational institute in the U.S.A can be allowed to be up and running with so many complaints, ethics, morals violations, and educational deception and fraud.
Do not forget at ITT TECH you are not a student you are only a "start number". ITT TEC is the nastiest business on earth, itís not a school, and this institute runs by animals the only concern of these animals in the HQ is to increase profits and do not care about students or education.
But I did find some help with the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, please send your complains to http://www.acics.org/uploadedFiles/Contact/Co...
This is our last hope.

Why are most of you mad at ITT. If you did not attend ITT then what's with the complaints. I mean I agree with some of you, but there's some making things up. I've seen students complete 1-2 years at a public university and or a community college then end up transferring to ITT. I've seen students that already completed a major at a university and yet still end up attending ITT. For this reason I don't agree with ITT students not being able to perform basic high school mathematics even with a calculator and not being able to work on the necessary equipment. Although I do agree with some ITT students being so unprofessional around the campus.

I have worked with and went to school with former ITT students. I agree with D-squared. What ITT and other for profit schools like it are doing is nothing less than a crime and should be stopped.
