Mission & Philosophy NTI is committed to excellence in curriculum, staffing, equipment, and service to its students, graduates, and industry. We are committed to a “hands-on” approach to reinforce the theory taught in the classroom and to provide the students with practical experience in the use of “real-world” equipment. The curriculum and equipment are frequently updated to adjust to the changing needs of industry.

With that in mind, NTI strives to meet these demands in its teaching and curriculum. By preparing our gradates in this manner, they are able to be placed in their field of study and they have the tools to be promoted.
