The Military Times has named Ecotech Institute to its 2014 Best for Vets List. The list honors top military friendly schools doing the most for veterans. Ecotech, which is the only college entirely focused on renewable energy training, came in at 19th out of 38. About 80 schools in total applied for the honor. The Military Times ranks the schools based on what veterans have told them are important, such as university culture, student support, academic policies, academic quality and financial aid.
“At Ecotech Institute we are thankful for the sacrifices our military veterans have already made and we want to make their transition into their next career as smooth and enjoyable as possible,” said Chris Gorrie, Academic Dean at Ecotech Institute. “We strive to provide them the support they need to excel and it’s an honor to be recognized for our work with military veterans.”
