Future made by hand

Our academic approach
At Penn College, you’ll start living your career from day one. Whether it’s getting to work in the welding lab or learning your way around a commercial kitchen, the hands-on experience begins your first semester.

Real-life learning
Sure, you’ll dig into textbooks and engage in lecture-based learning. But the real magic happens in the labs. After testing and measuring, seeing and believing, it’s amazing how quickly complex concepts come into focus. 

A standout skill set
Just because you’re getting fully immersed in your field, that doesn’t mean we’re skimping on big-picture essentials. Wildcats are known problem solvers. Highly talented, imaginative, hardworking critical thinkers are not easy to find. Ask employers. Bring the technical know-how and an eye for innovation and you’ll be first in line for your choice of job opportunities.

Problem-solving: Learn how to approach a problem from every angle and offer thoughtful solutions.
Imaginative thinking: Enjoy asking questions to arrive at the best possible outcome.  
Communication: Lay the foundation to become a successful communicator. 

Learning beyond the classroom
Wildcats love spreading their wings and flexing their talents outside of the traditional classroom and lab settings. At Penn College, you'll have lots of opportunities to get even more real-world experience through clinicals, internships, community projects, clubs, and competitions.
