University of Advancing Technology's (UAT) Tech Trek exposition is an open house built around the concept of a technology conference. It's a gathering of UAT experience and innovation partnerships, University resources as well as a serious learning exposition for prospective students and their families, industry experts, alumni speakers, and industry and government employers.

The UAT Expo is the signature opportunity for those in state and out of state seeking to learn everything about the University of Advancing Technology. This is the time to explore deep inside the UAT network of relationships and resources, and get a feel for your potential fit. UAT is not for everyone. Only the students and industry partners who are serious and passionate about innovating with advancing technology will find what they desire in this top technology University. If you think you have the mettle to become a UAT graduate, then you will find an exposition of the best our community has to offer. Prospective students gauge whether they will prosper at UAT. Industry experts illuminate the light bulbs of imagination and challenge our student body with up-to-the-day accomplishments in advancing technology. Employers find the promising tech graduates and alumni share both their successes and tribulations gaining authority as technology leaders.

Prospective student opportunities include touring our technology-infused campus, connecting with your future faculty, participating in hands-on workshops, eating in the campus café, mixing with other students and experiencing campus life up close without all the hyperbole of recruitment. Special arrangements can be made for a sleepover in the dorms. Think of it as your one chance to get past all the cool marketing to see for yourself and feel your fit. As a prospective student, you’re entitled to a tuition credit of $1,000 toward your first semester’s tuition at UAT (applies only to non-Arizona Residents; one-time $1,000 credit per student; student must be present to receive credit). Complete the RSVP form below, take an elite technology college campus tour, and enroll. If you want to get a sneak peek, check out our online virtual tour here.

Employers and industry partners also have the opportunity to meet the top innovators of tomorrow. There are many who seek UAT graduates; the competition for a UAT graduate is tough. Frequently, industry leaders do not get a fair shot at the innovators, as many graduates are scooped up and offered Government positions as a result of UAT’s many government sector partnerships and the Department of Defense funded Network Security lab on campus. If you are an innovative company pushing the envelope of advancing technology and need well-rounded technophiles with a classic education focused on tech leadership and a passion to change the world with advancing technology, this is your event. To reserve your on-campus employment booth click here and come light up the imagination of the UAT students. If you’re interested in being a guest speaker, click here. This is your time to create a desire for them to seek your company for employment after graduation.
