Indiana Tech registered 7,010 students this year, compared with 5,437 last fall, growing enrollment by 29 percent.
Students value our focus on providing career-oriented degree programs, Indiana Tech President Arthur Snyder said. Were growing, and we hope to continue that growth, but were still small enough that our faculty and staff can get to know our students and support them as a community.
About 2,000 Indiana Tech students attend classes at the main campus east of downtown Fort Wayne.
The steady enrollment growth has prompted plans to build a 60,000-square-foot academic center on the campus. The university expects to break ground in May.
In fall 2013, the university will add a law school with 100 students in the charter class.
In addition to Fort Wayne, Indiana Tech has locations in Elkhart, Fishers, Greenwood, Huntington, Indianapolis, Jeffersonville, Kendallville, Louisville, Ky., Mishawaka, Munster, Northern Kentucky, Plainfield and Warsaw.
