Our Mission

As an independent, not-for-profit college in Media and Philadelphia, our mission is student success. Our academic programs will prepare you for a wide variety of fields, including Health Care, Business Administration, Information Technology, and Engineering. You can earn your Associate Degree or a certificate that will allow you to succeed in positions within the hottest technology industries. As part of our commitment to your success, we provide extensive student support services to help you achieve your objective of earning a degree or a career certificate. Our support services include tutoring, job placement, college transfer, internship/externship opportunities and much more. These services can prove invaluable as you enter a technology career.

Whether you plan to transfer to a four-year institution or to move directly into a career position, our mission is to ensure that you successfully achieve your goals. At P.I.T. we provide an emphasis on career-focused education. Our students leave P.I.T. prepared to take immediate entry into the workforce or to transfer to a four-year college or university.

For 60 years, P.I.T. has offered our students a quality, collegiate education in an encouraging environment. In addition to small classes, where the teacher to student ratio is far smaller than most large institutions, P.I.T. also offers tutoring and Academic Enrichment classes to help students keep pace with their peers. Our faculty employs a "hands-on" approach to teaching that immerses our students in the day-to-day tasks upon which their careers will be built.

Our faculty is both professional and caring. They are not only invested in our students' professional growth, but also seek to nurture a sense of social responsibility in our alumni. Pennsylvania Institute of Technology students function equally well in both community and professional positions.

Leaving P.I.T. doesn't mean that your education is over. We encourage our students to keep abreast of changes in their given fields through extended learning and continued professional development.
