Founded in 1965 and headquartered in Phoenix, Universal Technical Institute's mission is to serve its students, partners, and communities by providing quality education and support services for in-demand careers. Approximately 220,000 students have graduated from one of UTI's 15 campuses located across Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Texas.
UTI's campuses are accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), while its employer-aligned technical training programs are offered under four brands: Universal Technical Institute (UTI), Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI) / Marine Mechanics Institute (MMI), NASCAR Technical Institute (NASCAR Tech), and MIAT College of Technology.
UTI reputation is built on the quality of our training and instructors, its industry relationships as well as the success that UTI graduates experience in their careers. Universal Technical Institute (UTI) works with a select group of 4,700+ employers who offer its graduates jobs with high starting salaries. Many of them attend on campus job fairs at its trade schools to recruit the students. Some even conduct interviews on the spot. There are also organizations that offer hiring incentives ranging from student loan repayment to tool purchase assistance.
Students can complete an entry-level technician program in about a year, add manufacturer training and graduate in as little as 18 months. The auto, diesel and collision repair training programs are accredited by the ASE Education Foundation, a division of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
The training programs at UTI teach the fundamental, in-demand skills that students can take with them into the workforce. Whether it’s automotive, diesel, motorcycle, motorsports, marine, welding, collision repair, CNC machining, aviation maintenance, energy, wind energy, robotics and automation, non-destructive testing, or HVACR. The institute's programs always meet the needs that employers are looking for when recruiting the next generation.
