Universal Technical Institute Marks Milestone Anniversary

Stocks in this article: UTI

GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Ill., July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Technical Institute (NYSE: UTI), the nation's leading provider of post-secondary education for individuals seeking careers as diesel and automotive technicians, today celebrated 25 years in Illinois. When the campus in Glendale Heights first opened its doors in 1988, it was the third campus in UTI's national network. Currently, the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based organization boasts 11 campuses across the country and is the industry's choice for entry-level technicians within the transportation industry. UTI's focus on training individuals for in-demand jobs continues with ambitious plans to serve its customers throughout the Midwest.

"As the market leader, we understand and act on the needs of our industry customers, and have kept our focus on providing the education and training that makes our graduates valuable and sought-after employees," said Julie Mueller, president of the UTI-Glendale Heights campus. "A milestone anniversary like this is an opportunity to look back at our key accomplishments, while looking ahead to exciting changes for our staff, students and employers."

Since the Illinois campus opened in July of 1988, more than 19,000 individuals have graduated from its various programs. As the Glendale Heights campus celebrates this anniversary, the students, instructors and staff look forward to the biggest change when it relocates its Glendale Heights campus later this year. The new 187,000 square foot campus is located along the Interstate 88 research and development corporate corridor in Lisle.

The core programs of automotive and diesel technician training offered at the campus are the most sought-after programs nationally and in the Midwest, and many students are electing to enroll in a manufacturer-specific training program before they graduate. Only UTI has partnered with more than 30 top brands to create curricula tailored to manufacturers' standards and equip its campuses with the latest vehicles, equipment, tools and training aids.
