Our primary campus is located on 180 acres in a quiet suburban community and offers on-campus and off-campus housing, intramural sports, and student activities. As a post secondary institution PTC has changed tremendously. Our core values have not. PTC's academic programs prepare students for careers by delivering employer-directed curriculum. PTC's instructors focus on student achievement and success, rather than research and papers. PTC's hands-on approach to education and an active learning environment replicates the reality of a workplace so closely that our students can enter the workplace with the ability to succeed in a team environment, interact effectively with people, and analyze problems. That's why employers return to PTC time and time again for their new hires.
