What do you think of UTI?

I might go there for their diesel program. What have you heard about or experienced with them?

I'll look into ICC and Parkland, thanks. The UTI campus is only a couple minutes away from me, so that's what has me leaning that way.

i went to uti but for the collision side. to be honest the diesel program is good, when i was in houston.(thats where the collision programs are held) a few of my friends were in the diesel program. but to be honest they are not a cheap school to go to. i dont know what UNOH is like in prices but i know UTI is high.

FWIW, UTI is referred to as "Un-Trained Idiot" by a few of the local shops...mind you this was probably 13 years ago, but still.......ask around the local shops what they think of it, not just those who went.

personally wanna know why UTI is called that, because alot of the students that go there think its like a normal 4 year university and party everyday. i know out of the people i hung around with when i was in school were not "idiots" when it came to cars. everyone i talked to actually knew how to work on a car correctly. granted im not saying the who student population of the school is like that. but majority of them are. i know one guy in particular that i still talk to(we both graduated 2 years ago) went into that school not knowing how to work on a car, he never even picked up a wrench in his life due to having other people do it for him. he came out looking like he knew his **** because of his devotion towards the trade. it all depends on the student.
