Morrison Tech History

Morrison Institute of Technology is an independent, co-educational, not-for-profit institution of higher learning.  The college was founded in 1973 by acquiring the assets of the Institute of Drafting and Technology located in Morrison, Illinois.

The college was first authorized by the State of Illinois to grant an Associate in Technology degree in 1973.  The first accreditation held by the college was granted by the Engineers’ Council for Professional Development (ECPD) in 1976.  In 1980 ECPD changed its name to the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).  The Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET currently  accredits our program.  The Design and Drafting CAD concentration is also accredited at the design/drafter level by the American Drafting and Design Association (ADDA), its highest level.

All classes are day classes offered at the campus in Morrison, Illinois.  Courses are offered on a semester basis, with semesters starting in January and August.

The name of the college is derived from the agri-business community of Morrison, the county seat of Whiteside County, located in scenic northwestern Illinois.  Morrison, with a population of 4800, is located approximately 130 miles west of Chicago and 15 miles east of Clinton, Iowa and the Mississippi River.
