Piedmont Technical College was founded in 1966 as the eighth technical center in the state of South Carolina. The first classes had over 300 enrolled students and enrollment has continued to grow rapidly. Due to increased enrollment, Piedmont Technical College has been expanding the campus and adding new academic buildings to accommodate the growing number of students. Originally named Piedmont Technical Education Center, in 1974 the school changed to its current name. Piedmont Technical College operates with the mission "to transform the lives of its students and strengthen its community through providing opportunities for intellectual and economic growth."
Piedmont Technical College offers associate's degrees, diplomas and certificate programs. Students can complete entire degrees and certificates through online learning, including degrees that can be transferred to four-year institutions.
