College History

History

The school was founded as the Williamsport Technical Institute in 1941, but previously functioned as an adult education and training facility since 1914. During World War II, the school operated 24 hours per day, providing war production training to help meet defense industry needs. Additionally, both during and after the war, the institute provided training and retraining for disabled veterans. In 1965, the Williamsport Area Community College (WACC) was founded, superseding the former technical institute. It continued providing technical training for residents of northern Pennsylvania. In 1989, the college became an affiliate of The Pennsylvania State University and changed its name to Pennsylvania College of Technology.
