Universal Technical Institute has launched new welding, airframe and powerplant, HVACR, wind power and industrial maintenance programs at four of its UTI division campuses in July, the technical school announced.
UTI is also admitting new students in nine more programs at five additional campuses. The remaining programs are planned to begin classes in August and September and include robotics and automation, the organizations aid.
Approximately 70 students started in the five programs launched in July, according to UTI. Once fully operational, these programs will be able to support more than 1,000 students annually.
“The acquisition of MIAT College of Technology and the continued success of our welding programs have allowed us the opportunity to expand our UTI division program offerings across our national campus footprint,” commented Jerome Grant, chief executive officer. “The program expansions, along with the two new UTI campuses launched in 2022, and the acquisition of Concorde Career Colleges this fiscal year, are a key element of our growth and diversification strategy.”
Including the July launches, new programs are currently planned across nine campuses in seven states. Potential future expansions may also be considered, the company said.
