Note: Effective September 1, 2015, applications will no longer be accepted for the engineering technology program. Instead, applications will be accepted for the new engineering program.
Currently, a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Technology is offered exclusively at Pitt-Johnstown.
Pitt-Johnstown graduates are aggressively recruited by many engineering firms, and have a 90% employment rate within three months of graduation, and 100% of engineering faculty possess real-world experience in their respective fields.
Both engineering technologists and engineers make significant contributions to the constant quest for better material products, more effective methods of solving society’s technology-related problems, and better ways of using technology to promote understanding among people. Pitt-Johnstown’s programs in engineering technology prepare men and women to improve the quality of life by organizing individuals, materials, and equipment to manufacture products, erect buildings, construct and operate transportation systems, generate and distribute power, and solve other difficult engineering problems.
Engineering technologists are also responsible for existing technologies—nuclear, automotive, aircraft, chemical production, environmental, electronic, power generation, and others. Application-oriented, they bring important management and technological knowledge to the task of operating industries and businesses related to technology. With this knowledge, they transform ideas into products and processes—and then strive to improve them.
