WyoTech is more than a technical school--it's a community of career-minded students and faculty passionate about the automotive and mechanical trades. WyoTech was first established more than 30 years ago under the name of American Motorcycle Institute. In February of 2006, the name of the school was changed to WyoTech. We offer career-focused, hands-on training in marine and motorcycle technology.
Hands-on Technical Education
WyoTech offers a focused, hands-on education designed to help students accelerate their career in the mechanical trades.

With a variety of programs in automotive, marine, and appliance mechanics to choose from, you can build a comprehensive yet specialized skill set in your field. Most students focus on building technical skills in diploma programs, which may be completed in less than sixteen months.

Toward a Technical Career
WyoTech's mission is to impart relevant, up-to-date knowledge and skills to each student, and to place each graduate in their chosen field. Of course, no institution can guarantee employment, which depends on a student's dedication and self-motivation. WyoTech offers students the resources they need to succeed. In addition to real-world technical training, you can expect:
- Evaluate your professional competencies and strengths.
- Build and maintain relationships with employers.
WyoTech's technical training programs offer a solid foundation for a range of technician and service management careers. Students may work in a collision repair shop, a retail service, or specialty automotive or motorcycle shop. Or they may work in heavy equipment maintenance, HVAC sheet metal fabrication, marine fleet maintenance, or residential construction.
