The Indiana Institute of Technology (commonly referred to as Indiana Tech) is a private Ph.D.-granting university located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, in Allen County, Indiana, United States.
It was founded as Indiana Technical College by John A. Kalbfleisch, who was also the school's first president. The college was founded in June 1930, and was incorporated as a proprietary school by the State of Indiana on January 10, 1931.
The university today is organized into three colleges. The university specializes in career-oriented degree programs in business, engineering, computer science, education, criminal justice and others. In addition to the traditional semester-long class format, Indiana Tech also offers accelerated degree programs and online programs via its College of Professional Studies.
Student athletics, both organized and intramural, are an important part of student life. Indiana Tech fields eleven men's and eleven women's teams that compete in the NAIA, in which Indiana Tech is a member of the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference for all intercollegiate athletics.
