The History of Our Private College

For over 70 years, the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology has been dedicated to preparing students for rewarding careers. It all began in 1950 with Walter R. Garrison, who saw the need for engineers in aircraft and civil/architectural fields.

The first classes at our private college focused on mathematics, stress analysis, and other technical subjects, with students being taught in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. The programs continued being offered there until 1982, when more space was needed and P.I.T. moved to Media, Pennsylvania.

P.I.T. now offers 12 two-year associate degrees, one bachelor’s degree, and two one-year career certificate programs, all designed to give students the expertise they need to thrive in their careers.

The Programs We Offer

Our nonprofit private college supplies numerous specialized programs to ensure you receive the knowledge and professional skills needed to succeed. These programs include:
