Pittsburgh Technical College (PTC) first opened its downtown Pittsburgh doors in 1946 as the School of Management Engineering. Since then, the school has grown from a small, single-discipline school to a two-year college offering more than 25 programs to 2,000 students. Programs include business, criminal justice, design, healthcare, and technology. The primary campus is located on 180 acres in a quiet suburban community and offers on-campus and off-campus housing, intramural sports, and student activities. Financial aid is available for those that qualify. The career services department offers great resources and valuable job insight for current students and alumni.
Building Systems, Construction, and Manufacturing
We’re in the middle of a building and construction boom unheard of in your lifetime in terms of scale and sheer number of jobs for all trades—and that includes electricians. Three new regional hospitals are in the planning stages, along with five medical centers and a new immunology center. And work has already begun on the enormous Shell cracker plant in Beaver County. Skilled men and women will have to wire every room, every floor, every department of all those new facilities.
Electricians install, maintain, and repair electrical power, communications, lighting, and control systems in every type of home, business, and factory. They need to know their way around every kind of power generation and distribution equipment, understand everything from reading electrical schematics to installing wiring circuits, and adhere to a wide array of safety standards.
