Top 5 Reasons to Choose BFIT
1. BFIT students earn a high starting salary after attending
BFIT students earn an average of $38,400 per year after attending BFIT.
In the U.S., there is a lack of skilled workers to fill available technology jobs - a gap expected to increase with the aging workforce in America. Just in manufacturing, there are as many as 500,000 jobs that are not being filled because employers can't find qualified workers. This results in rewarding job opportunities for our students and grads.
2. Affordable Tuition
BFIT is one of the most affordable private, non-profit colleges in Massachusetts, and more affordable than all for-profit technical schools in the state. Our tuition costs less than half of the average tuition at 4-year non-profit colleges in the state.
Approximately 90% of our students receive some sort of financial aid, and we provide around $2 million per year in scholarships. We are committed to providing a high quality college education that is more affordable and that gets better results
3. Job-ready skills
A college degree and hands-on training will set you apart in today's job market. The Alliance for Science & Technology Research in America estimates that in the next few years Massachusetts will have 300,000 jobs available that will require science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
Most of our grads land jobs in their field or continue their college education, and some programs such as Electrical Technology, Automotive Technology and Opticianry, have 80%-90% job placement rates.
4. Smaller Classes
Take a stroll through our historic campus, and it’s very clear: BFIT is a small college. Yet, our small size makes an enormous impact on our students' journey towards lifelong careers. Our smaller classes, with an average size of just 11 students, mean you receive individualized attention. Many of our students have transferred from larger community colleges or state universities and thrive in our tight-knit community. We pride ourselves in helping students with every step on their pathway to success in the classroom and workplace.
5. Industry Connections
Our close relationships with employers means internships, job-shadowing opportunities, and of course, careers for our graduates! Many of our programs were created with help from industry leaders to ensure that we prepare our students with the right skills for the right jobs in today’s economy.
Each year, over 60 companies attend our job fair seeking to hire BFIT students. In fact, many of our students work in their field prior to graduation, enabling them to earn money, gain skills, and be exposed to their fields early in their college career.
