    The fact that our instructors have experience in the industry and are willing to offer all that advice to us is valuable in and of itself, and far more personal than you would get at most larger colleges. The ability to talk one-on-one about your work and goals and get the feedback is tremendously important, and if nothing else I would say to check out LWTech just for that opportunity. That said, the courses are comprehensive, teaching theory and ability and giving you the hands-on opportunity to learn a new skill and get experience doing the actual work involved in your trade, at half (or less) the cost of other similar institutions.

    For residents, Lake Washington Tech is pretty inexpensive compared to other schools like it. It's priced like a community college, about 500-600 a class, and the academic courses are relatively short. Most degrees are two year degrees, and tuition after class fees is around 1700 full time for one semester.

    The costs for the electronics program at comparable schools were double the costs I am paying here. Also, there are many programs on campus where you can get free services such as automobile repair, teeth cleaning, and massages. As well as being equipped with a machine shop and a complete weld shop, both with students always looking for projects.
