School Overview

Pennsylvania College of Technology was founded in 1941 as the Williamsport Technical Institute. Prior to its founding, as an institute of higher learning, the school functioned as an adult education and training facility since as early as 1914. During World War II, the school operated 24 hours per day, providing war production training to help meet defense industry needs.
