Southern California Institute of Technology (SCIT) was founded in 1987 by a small team of educators with a vision to build an institution that prides itself on providing quality education by means of an application centered, hands-on teaching approach. SCIT first opened its doors in Anaheim, CA with a single classroom and offered diploma programs in the areas of electronics and computers.
The institution became accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) in 1995 and soon thereafter began offering Associates and Bachelor’s degrees in the engineering and business disciplines.
The institution grew over the years and built a reputation within the business community for producing technically qualified graduates. The institution received many equipment donations from various companies from time to time and has used those donations along with substantial internal investments to build educational lab facilities to support its mission of providing quality hands-on education.
Since its inception, SCIT has attempted to bridge the positive qualities of multiple types of higher education institutions across the educational spectrum, from trade schools to traditional four year universities. The school seeks to develop an educational curricula that meet the academic standards expected of senior colleges and universities while also infusing a hands-on educational approach that provides an academic experience where conceptual topics are cemented into the learning process through application based lab work.
Today, SCIT continues its original mission. Over the last 30 years, we've gained a reputation in the community for providing quality education.
