In the USA Oregon Institute of Technology is a modest public college with some focus on engineering majors and located in Klamath Falls, Oregon This college was opened in 1947 and is currently offering bachelor’s degrees in 8 engineering applications. Oregon Tech is the only totally geothermally-heated university campus in the United States, and is residence to the Geo-Heat Center, a national resource for geothermal development, and the Oregon Renewable Power Center (OREC), which conducts applied analysis on photovoltaic power systems, ground-source heating systems, fuel-cell systems, wind, biomass, biodiesel and integrated systems.
The present Klamath Falls Oregon Tech campus overlooks Upper Klamath Lake , and is directly adjacent to Sky Lakes Medical Center Although the physical location of the school usually elicits a favorable response with its views of the lake and mountains, the campus architecture, designed by the architect who designed the U.S. Air Force Academy buildings, is generally regarded as bland, but pragmatic.
Oregon Tech is the only fully geothermally -heated university campus in the United States , 24 and is house to the Geo-Heat Center , a national resource for geothermal improvement, and the Oregon Renewable Power Center (OREC), which conducts applied investigation on photovoltaic power systems, ground-supply heating systems, fuel-cell systems, wind, biomass , biodiesel and integrated systems.
The Renewable Power Engineering system also has a club open to all majors and is operating toward becoming a chapter of the Association of Power Engineers The Oregon Tech Robotics Club invites students from many majors to collaborate on multidisciplinary robotics projects such as the MATE ROV competitors and to help neighborhood members in technical projects.
Outreach Leadership: Advertising the Wilsonville campus and programs with external partners such as other Oregon universities, academic and business partners, as nicely as executing partnership techniques with the Associate Vice President for Strategic Partnerships, the Associate Vice President for Communications and Public Affairs, and other internal partners.
