All majors are supported by a common core of technical welding courses that encompass the most common welding and cutting processes.

Average class size is 16
Small classes enable our experienced faculty to give each student the personal attention necessary to optimize his or her learning experience.

"I am most impressed with Penn College's small class sizes. I am never herded into an auditorium with three hundred other students."
