University of Advancing Technology Technology University Mission

Letter From the President

With the brilliant minds of all generations since the dawn of the computer revolution serving as our guide, we at UAT have worked hard to develop the UAT culture and core curriculum that inspire students and professors alike to see beyond the tech of the moment to the greater trends and future directions that create true innovation and industry leadership.

As the first computer university in the country, UAT has earned a reputation for excellence in advancing technology education. Our students are known as forward-thinking innovators and capable problem solvers.

This culture reinforces the heart of why UAT exists: “To educate students in advancing technology who innovate for our future.” Students with a passion for technology will find the UAT experience to be the defining choice in their paths to success in life.

As a commitment to our dedication to these ideals, each graduate is required to leave UAT as a proven innovator, so focused on innovation they demonstrate their real world knowledge by filing for a US patent prior to graduation.

Every year, all of us in the UAT family look forward to the next great innovations our students and faculty produce. We are continually amazed by the ability of our students to carpe diem! I invite you to review some of our students' great accomplishments. I hope that as you explore the pages of UAT.edu you are as inspired for what the next few years of innovations has in store as all of us at UAT are every day.

Sincerely,

Jason Pistillo
