The school offers a bachelor’s degree in building automation technology; associate degrees in electrical technology, electromechanical maintenance technology, mechatronics engineering technology and renewable energy technologies; and a certificate in electrical occupations.

“We have seen the college electrical program grow. It does a great job of preparing students for technical careers,” MacBride said. “PPL provides financial support to community organizations and supports economic and community development initiatives, helping create jobs and growth opportunities for local economies.”

PPL is a longtime supporter of the college – visiting Career Fairs and holding other on-campus recruitment efforts to attract Penn College students and alumni – and has strengthened a variety of majors and programs with financial contributions, equipment donations and technical expertise.
