Founded in 1895 as the Montgomery Preparatory School, WVU Tech has a rich history of academic excellence. WVU Tech currently maintains campuses in Montgomery and Beckley, West Virginia. In the fall of 2017, WVU Tech will operate entirely from the WVU Beckley Campus. A campus within the West Virginia University system, WVU Tech serves more than 1,200 students representing more than 30 states and 20 countries. WVU Tech consists of two academic colleges: the College of Business, Humanities and Social Sciences and the Leonard C. Nelson College of Engineering and Sciences. The University offers more than 40 academic programs, including 9 ABET-accredited engineering programs. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 12:1 and an average class size of 17 students, our classes provide students with personalized attention in a supportive environment. The school is very supportive of all the sports teams no matter what they may be and the athletes get very good recognition for their hard work and dedication. It is very helpful and they make it so easy on students by answering questions, picking up the phone, and getting to know the students at the university. Their administration really cares about the students success and our overall education. They want to know and want to help when we have struggles and they want to be there for their achievements too.
