5 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's taking me where I want to go

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love the school and concept

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: ECA is destroying the schools financial abilities by micro-managing the finance department.

5 College Junior

Student Body: Friendly goal oriented and hopeful

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: My goal is to understand and engineering is the best way to reach that goal

5 College Junior

Career Services: These instructors are some of the best I have ever had the pleasure to be in the same room as.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The staff cares about what the do and the students but financial assistance could use some work. Military transfer credits should be looked at more carefully. I'm almost out of time and may have to take 5 classes I have over 10,000hrs experience in.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: save your time and money. this is a really awful experience and all you'll have to show for it are empty pockets and credits that won't transfer anywhere. You won't get a good job, that's for sure. They'll take your money and run.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: a joke - there are no unique aspects of the program. You could just read books by yourself and get the same out of it.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: I can't believe they charge people money to go here. I'm leaving after this quarter. I would leave now but I've already paid my tuition. One of the real problems at this school is that they don't tell you that none of the credits you get here will transfer to other schools. They tell you to be sure and read the student handbook (ha ha - joke's on you) -- it does say that in the student handbook, but unless you find it, they'll just let you think any credits you take here could possibly transfer. well, they won't.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Bad bad bad. What more can I say.

1 College Junior

Student Body: Bad. Really bad. Most are stoners.

1 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Don't go here. The administration is awful. The instructors do try to help but their hands are tied. I can't believe some of the people they let in this school. They barely know how to spell their own names and they're a bunch of stoners. Rumor has it that their admissions department is getting leaned on so heavily by the for-profit corporate office in birmingham alabama, that admissions will let just about anyone in. They don't care about the students at all, but they make it seem that way when you go to your first orientation session. They say they have a 90% job placement rate, but no one ever asks what kind of jobs the graduates got after graduation. A lot of them aren't jobs the student studied for. They're jobs like working at the UPS facility schlepping packages all day or cold-calling everyone in the phone book to try and sell them solar installation services. Students are told they'll walk out the door making 60-80 thousand dollars in their first job. HA HA. You're lucky if you get a job at all after going here.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I couldn't ask for a better school. Location and academics are second to none.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: We offer a wide range of renewable energy degrees as well as Facilities Maintenance degree

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The Financial aid department was the best I have ever had to deal with. Another college that I tried out drug their feet and didn't make the deadlines. Ecotech was on top of my loans and had everything paid for swiftly

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: I have enjoyed each day at school since I have started. The student body is a little older than at most colleges that I've been to. So people seem to be more on willing to learn as well as willing to meet and have fun. There seems to be a large number of students that are cvery involved in different clubs or organizations. It is a very diverse body of students, from all over the country.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: It is great, for whenever I need help with homework or maybe organizational skills; there are a few places on campus that I can go to get tutored. That is if my wonderful teacher doesn't help me first. The Solar tech labs are very impressive as well. They have many Solar stations so that only one or 2 people are learning at a time. This is great because we have more one on one attention and are able to learn better.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: All the IT networks and help are updated and fast. There is always a computer area that I can use if needed.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: We are one of the only schools in the entire country that offer degrees directly related to renewable energy. So the majority of the student body is very dedicated to live a green lifestyle. I have made some decent friends that have big goals about being successful in the Solar or Wind Technology fields.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: From what I have heard from more experienced students, the job placement rate at this school is extremely high. I have seen teachers start to teach us about post grad as early as our first week.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: My experience at Ecotech Institute has been top notch. I have been treated exceptional since I've moved here by the faculty and administration. They handled my financial aid swiftly and painlessly with a smile. I highly recommend this school.

2 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: Typical students are of the mob mentality, they couldn't think their way out of a paper bag.

2 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: If you had asked me while I was there, I would have given better answers, but when I tried to get a job, they were useless, and when I got a job on my own I found many things they never trained me for.

Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: There were no online courses at the time I attended.
