KIRKLAND, WA – Looking to expand your skill set? Thinking about a new job? Lake Washington Institute of Technology is hosting an expanded information session on Aug. 27 to provide more information on more than 100 classes that start late September.

LWTech offers certificates and associates degrees in more than 44 programs of study from multimedia design and production to baking. LWTech also offers three bachelor’s degrees in the growing fields of applied design, public health, transportation and logistics. Students can earn a meaningful, skills-based credential in as little as two quarters or a more focused bachelor’s degree in 16 quarters.

What makes LWTech different.

LWTech focuses on hands-on learning. Students in all fields practice their craft whether it is dental hygiene, auto repair, occupational therapy, engineering graphics or funeral services management. With a recent infusion of grant money, LWTech’s machining and aerospace classes also provide students plenty of practice time on new state-of-the-art equipment.

This learning approach is right in line with the changing workforce. A recent national policy report that shows the demand for skills-based, problem-solving employees is on the rise.

“The variety of programs is fantastic,” said Dr. Kevin McCarthy, vice president of instruction. “Our students come here for practical, purposeful hands-on experience. They have a solid future when they leave.”

LWTech information session

Students interested in exploring the variety of programs are welcome at the information session: Wednesday, Aug. 27 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in West 204F. More information is available at 425.739.8100
