Pittsburgh Technical College Reviews
This college is absolutely honestly amazing! They are very serious about being hands on, and they are very good at it. Their schools in IT, Criminal Justice, and Video Production are phenomenal. All of their programs are great. They also offer on campus housing even though they are a 2 year college. Their Humans versus Zombies game is so fun.
I'm going to give PTC five stars because I've had a stellar experience here over the past several years. With the addition of the bachelor's program, the school has enabled me to pursue opportunities I'd otherwise not have from within my current company. I admit, they're student-body is made up of some questionable characters which is pretty evident by reading the majority of these other reviews (absolutely terrible grammar from kids that barely made it through high school.... it's the "We accept EVERYONE" situation), but otherwise, this place has come a long way and I can honestly say, with their regional accreditation, I'm proud to have earned both my associate's and bachelor's degrees from PTC!
The teachers and staff are all easy going. Just ask! My instructors listen, offer advice, push me to think. Courses are challenging, but help is always available. I moved here and the apartments are super nice. Campus is nice and quiet, until activities kick in. The malls, stores are all nearby. Tons of restaurants and shopping. Met really nice friends here too. It's private, feels safe and someone is always around to help.
