Don’t just live in your world… CREATE
Are you the type of
person who has crossed a street, ridden a train, or entered a building and
marveled at the thought of how it got there?
Then you’re an ideal candidate for The Pennsylvania Institute of Technology’s Architectural
– Civil Engineering two-year Associate Degree Program.
What is Architectural - Civil
If you are not sure what Architectural and Civil
Engineering is, take a look at the world around you. Roadways, buildings,
utility lines, drainage canals, waterways, houses, and nearly every other part
of modern life is the result of professional architects and civil engineers.
Architecture is the design of structures, demanding creative, artistic
thinkers. Civil Engineering is how we make designs happen, requiring logical
thinkers. This is the type of position where you won’t sit at a desk all day. You will enjoy a mix of outdoor and indoor
work, and every day will be different. If this appeals to you, you’ll thrive in the
Architectural/Civil Engineering field.
is experiential learning?
put, experiential learning is learning through direct experience. We feel it’s
the best way to learn, and we designed our Program around it. So when you
attend classes at P.I.T., get ready for more than just textbooks
instructors use a variety of teaching tools such as:
to in-progress building sites
interaction with site supervisors
for Humanity volunteer work
kind of career will I have?
infrastructure projects growing every year, this is great time to enter a
fast-growing field. In fact, Architecture and Civil Engineering is expecting a
combined 43% increase in jobs over the next decade
. A variety of careers
exist at the federal, state, municipal, military and private levels, including:
can I go after P.I.T.?
P.I.T. launches you into a world of opportunity!
You can transfer your Associate Degree credits to a four- year college or
university to pursue your Bachelor of Science degree. You can start working in your field right
after graduation. You can work in your
field and pursue your degree part-time.
PIT will prepare you for the next step that’s right for YOU.
Why choose P.I.T. for your
Architectural - Civil Engineering degree?
Our instructors either come from a real
world background or still hold positions in their fields. They share their
working knowledge to better prepare our students to enter the workplace.
- Intimate learning
environment and family atmosphere
Our instructors know each student on a
first name basis. Smaller class sizes
allow us to focus on each student’s individual strengths and areas to improve.
- Parallel learning
P.I.T.’s unique “parallel learning”
approach saves time and money for our students.
We offer both skill strengthening and degree classes at the same time,
fast-tracking students to a degree.
Our flexible schedule is ideal for
students balancing work, family, and school.
- No “weeding out”
It’s common to find “weeding out”
courses in other architectural programs.
These courses are harder than a first semester course should be. Some schools use them to “weed out”
struggling students. At P.I.T. we take the opposite approach: we WANT you to
succeed. We will go the extra mile to
ensure your success!
- Free tutoring
Scheduled tutoring from both
instructors and honor students is available to ALL P.I.T. students, free of charge!
- Portfolio Building
and Interview Coaching
The value of a P.I.T. education extends
beyond the classroom! Our instructors work hard to prepare graduates through
portfolio building and interview coaching.
P.I.T. students get valuable real-world
experience with internships at the area’s leading organizations in the
Architectural and Civil Engineering fields.
