Campus Spotlight on Lincoln Tech in Indianapolis
When Lincoln Tech opened its Indianapolis, IN campus in 1961, the Indy 500 was celebrating its 50th anniversary. A.J. Foyt had just won his first of four Indy 500 championships, and future legend Al Unser Sr. was in the early stages of his racing career. Rick Mears, who would later tie Foyt and Unser for the most Indy 500 career wins (four), was about to turn 10 years old. The first appearance of a rear-engine race car, driven by Australian Jack Brabham, came in that year’s race. And it was the last Indy 500 to be raced on the track’s original brick surface. (It was to be paved over with asphalt later that year.)
Fifty-eight years later the campus has become a top destination for career-minded students across the country. Today the campus offers 10 exciting occupational training programs, including several degree-granting options, at the heart of a region where fast-paced, hands-on careers offer some of the best opportunities for growth and advancement.
