Letter from the President

In 1953, Walter R. Garrison, P.E. founded the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology to provide each and every deserving student an opportunity to reach their academic and career goals through an advanced technical education. The Mission of Pennsylvania Institute of Technology is student success. YOUR SUCCESS !!!!


A core of general education courses in conjunction with a comprehensive technical education prepares our graduates for meaningful employment in business, technology or health care industries. With our many articulation agreements with area colleges, our associate degree graduates can also transfer to four-year schools to earn bachelor’s degrees.

Our classes are small, so you are given the proper help and nurturing to learn the subject being taught. Our professors are dedicated to teaching, and you receive the attention and assistance to assure your success as a Pennsylvania Institute of Technology student.

Our educational delivery systems include traditional classroom, online courses and hybrid courses that combine elements of traditional and online to accommodate your busy schedule.

As a P.I.T graduate, former instructor, board member and now president, I invite you on the exciting journey to your future success.

Welcome to the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology!
