Globe University unveiled a new logo this week announcing the NTI School of Technology. This new part of the Globe Education Network is a result of the recent merger with Northwest Technical Institute, a small private design and drafting college located in Eagan, MN. Northwest Technical Institute was established in 1957 as a private school specializing in Engineering and Architectural Drafting and Design. NTI enrolled its first class in July of 1957 in downtown Minneapolis at the site of the current IDS tower. Throughout the years, Northwest Technical Institute continued to expand, moving to facilities in St. Louis Park, Eden Prairie and finally Eagan in 2007.
Thousands of architectural and engineering drafters have graduated from the school in the last 55 years. Many of the graduates have continued their education; some have become leaders and business owners in their respective fields.
Northwest Technical Institute has always been committed to excellence in curriculum, technology, staffing, and service to its students, graduates and industry. Curriculum has been carefully developed in cooperation with employers in the architectural and engineering industries. Northwest Technical Institute has historically had nearly 100% job placement rates and 85-90% completion rates.
Because of its rich history in design and drafting in the Twin Cities region, Globe has decided to establish the NTI School of Technology at Globe University, which offers an AAS degree in Architectural Design & Drafting, Engineering Design & Drafting and a new Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology. The NTI School of Technology is continuing the tradition of Northwest Technical Institute at the Woodbury Campus of Globe University. The students at NTI School of Technology will be using the Northwest Technical Institute curriculum and are being taught by the same instructors at the new campus. NTI School of Technology at Globe University is committed to continue the legacy of Northwest Technical Institute by producing the highest quality drafters and designers in the Twin Cities area.
