Open House Planned at Fishers Location
The College of Professional Studies will host an open house for prospective students at its new Fishers location from 4 to 7 p.m. September 22.
Indiana Tech celebrated the opening of the locaton at 10765 Lantern Road with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
Indiana Tech has offered classes in Fishers since 2002, renting classroom space in a local hotel. The new facility allows the university to offer a wider selection of courses and have admissions staff on site. The location has three full-size classrooms and one smaller classroom/conference room.
“We’re very excited about the addition of Fishers, as it will enable the university to more effectively cater to working adults in Hamilton County,” said Perry Collins, vice president of the College of Professional Studies.
Undergraduate classes began at the Lantern Road location in July, with graduate classes scheduled to begin in October. The Fishers site is expected to become the center of Indiana Tech’s graduate studies program in the greater Indianapolis area
The College of Professional Studies offers undergraduate and graduate programs in an accelerated format. The program is designed to accommodate nontraditional students who also have to balance work, family, and community responsibilities. Each course meets once a week for five-week or six-week sessions, allowing students to attend full-time without sacrificing other commitments. Students can register online or by phone, fax, or mail, and textbooks will be shipped to them.
The career-oriented programs in accounting, business administration, and organizational leadership cater to working adults by focusing on contemporary topics in the corporate world. Faculty members have real world experience in addition to academic credentials, allowing them to blend textbook theory with workplace reality. Students attend class with other working adults, setting the scene for stimulating discussions of common challenges.
In addition to Fishers and the main campus in Fort Wayne, the College of Professional Studies also has locations in Elkhart, Greenwood, Hammond, Huntington, Indianapolis, Kendallville, Merrillville, Mishawaka, Plainfield, and Warsaw.
