Universal Technical Institute Inc., a provider of transportation technician training, has announced plans to open a new campus in Austin, TX in 2022. The new location will mark its 13th nationwide and the third in the state, along with Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth.
“We are excited to be expanding in Texas, where UTI has a 38-year history of supporting students and graduating them with the skills employers want so they can be employed in good jobs,” says Jerome Grant, UTI’s CEO. “An Austin campus will offer a convenient solution for students to train while living and working at home in a market where our proven evaluation criteria shows extremely strong prospective student interest in our programs and employer demand for skilled technicians.”
The Austin campus will help provide convenient, flexible, and industry-aligned training opportunities to students and deliver the skilled technicians UTI’s industry and employer partners need.
UTI has leased approximately 100,000 sq.-ft. in the CM Techridge facility in North Austin. The campus will be designed with an efficient layout to support UTI’s new blended-learning curriculum, providing digital and hands-on training elements. The expected initial offerings at the campus include UTI’s Automotive, Diesel, and Welding Technology programs, with the capacity for additional programs to be added in the future.
UTI aims to open the Austin campus during the second quarter of 2022, subject to obtaining necessary regulatory approvals and completing the campus build-out. Implementation will begin during the second half of fiscal 2021.
School officials also announced plans to open another new campus, with additional details and location to be provided at a later date. For more information: uti.edu.
