Lake Washington Institute of Technology

Location: Kirkland, Washington

Lake Washington Institute of Technology graduates are prepared to go out into the workforce with the latest industry skills, and/or ready to transfer to one of LWTech’s bachelor’s or another university. Our graduates that continue on to another university typically transfer to area institutions like University of Washington, University of Washington Bothell, Seattle University, Seattle Pacific University, Washington State University, and Central Washington University.

Hundreds of industry leaders serve on our advisory committees, providing leadership, direction and industry insight. The college leverages industry expertise to create well-defined educational pathways that prepare students for employment or transfer upon graduation. These business leaders provide internships and in many cases, hire our graduates.

LWTech students experience hands-on learning from expert, masters or doctorial credentialed faculty with direct ties to industry, and our graduates are getting jobs. In fact, 83-percent of our graduates are employed within six months of graduation.

Post-completion work experience opportunities (OPT) available with all associate and applied bachelor degrees. Two applied bachelor programs are eligible for up to three years of work experience (STEM—OPT). Internships (CPT) are available with some associate degree programs.
