Who is WyoTech?
We're not just a tech school, we're a community of students and instructors who are passionate about the automotive, diesel, motorcycle, marine, and collision refinishing career fields
WyoTech, formerly known as Wyoming Technical Institute, is dedicated to high-quality, college-level, career-oriented education in the automotive, diesel, motorcycle, watercraft, and collision/refinishing industries. Each WyoTech course is designed to provide our students with the skills they need to achieve their education goals.
Most WyoTech diploma courses can be completed in less than a year and a half. There are currently three WyoTech campuses across the country. This website is dedicated to providing you detailed information about WyoTech classes and courses.
Through the use of industry-based advisory committees, employed graduate contacts, and faculty/industry interactions, WyoTech continually upgrades and modifies courses to enhance each graduate's employability.
WyoTech's primary objectives are to impart specific knowledge and skills, to graduate each and every student who begins training, and to place them in their chosen fields. In order to achieve these objectives, the curriculum, the faculty and staff, and the facilities and learning environment become equally important.
WyoTech's curricula allow students to concentrate exclusively on learning technical skills in diploma courses or to expand their education with associate degree programs.
WyoTech prepares students for the post-graduation working world by teaching on a workday, not a school day schedule. Most students attend classes approximately eight hours a day, five days a week.
The faculty and staff respect the professional decision students have made to enter career training. We believe professionalism is as important an aspect of training as are technical and business skills. For that reason, WyoTech has established rules and regulations concerning attendance, behavior and academic performance in classrooms, labs and shops. These rules are enforced, both on campus and in housing at the Wyoming campus, and each student's grades are adjusted weekly to reflect "professionalism points." Professionalism develops a positive attitude, personal motivation, and career pride. These elements, combined with technical expertise, produce a WyoTech graduate– who may become a skilled professional technician.
Our career training courses are short-term, and most of our students complete their courses in less than 16 months.

George KremposkiWyoTech Graduate"After WyoTech, I worked at a few collision shops and four hot rod shops. I have a steady flow of people who want me to do work for them. Some wait up to a year for me to do the work on their babies. I've taken a short vacation from building cars and have turned my efforts to building some of the country's coolest jet boats."
