President's Welcome

Welcome to Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech). For more than 50 years, LWTech has served our community by providing students with innovative, high-demand workforce training options. As the ninth President of LWTech, I’m honored to continue this important work by ensuring our students thrive in a diverse and dynamic environment that supports their success.

LWTech offers 100 professional/technical degree and certificate options, and more than 40 diverse programs ranging from engineering graphics, welding, and nursing to computer technology, culinary arts, and digital gaming and media. I invite you to click on the following links to read more about our program offerings, including three bachelor degree programs in the high-demand fields of Applied Science in Public Health, Applied Science in Transportation and Logistics, and Technology in Applied Design.

I’m proud that our programs are taught by industry leaders and experts in their fields, and that we partner with businesses that truly care about creating a bridge between our programs and the workplace, such as Astronics, Microsoft, Evergreen Health, McKinstry, Anthony’s Restaurants, Mentor Graphics, NYTEC, and EPTAC. In doing so, we’ve created pathways for our students that are practical, purposeful and promising.

Most importantly, we’ve learned that students have a better experience and perform better when they feel supported. That is why we are implementing innovative plans that will not only help students achieve their educational goals, but will also create a diverse, vibrant learning environment.

One of the ways we help our students succeed, is by providing many support services, free of charge. Below are just a few:

  • Advising, which offers assistance in planning academic classes, preparing for admissions to a competitive admission program, learning about important campus resources, and getting on track to graduate.

  • The Academic Support Center, which is a free services to help students be successful in all aspects of their education.

  • The Assessment Center, which offers quality testing and assessment services for our students, employees, and the community.

  • Counseling Services, which offers appointments to currently enrolled students with a professional counselor for free, short-term personal counseling (up to twelve sessions).

  • e-Learning, which provides students who are taking classes online with extra assistance in navigating or troubleshooting LWTech’s online course system.

These are just a few examples of how everyone at LWTech is invested in the success of our students. I invite you to explore our website and our campuses in Kirkland and Redmond.
