Pennsylvania College of Technology’s welding program is expanding as a result of a multi-million dollar federal grant from the Economic Development Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce. This grant, along with a match equivalent, will allow the College to expand its welding facility by approximately 30,000 square feet.
Expected completion date for this project is Spring 2019.
The Welding Expansion at Penn College will
More than double the size of the facility
Allow us to accept an additional 60 students each year into the Welding Program
Help fill unmet demand for highly skilled employees in a number of industries
Keep the Penn College Welding & Fabrication Engineering Technology major on the cutting edge of technology
Fundraising Project Goal
Although the EDA grant and matching funds will support the physical expansion of the facility, there is still a significant need to equip the space. Pennsylvania College of Technology seeks to raise additional funds of equipment and outright cash gifts to fully equip the newly expanded facility in the Avco-Lycoming Metal Trades Center.
We look forward to recognizing gifts of all levels to the Welding Expansion Project. All gifts of equipment or outright funds of $5,000 or more to support the project will be recognized by donor name and giving level on a plaque inside the newly expanded facility.
To participate, please contact Loni Kline at 570-320-2400, ext. 4960 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

“This grant will further Penn College’s work to help students gain the skills they need to compete in our economy. Every worker should have the opportunity to gain the kinds of skills that allow them to obtain good paying jobs that can support a family. This grant will help more students be successful in the economy.”
