PTC Advisory Boards

An important hallmark of PTC is our array of Advisory Boards. Each of our major programs has a separate advisory board made up of distinguished professionals in a specialized industry. Board members meet with PTC faculty and staff regularly to advise the college on issues relating to curriculum, current hiring trends, and the skills their industry needs. This valuable advice helps PTC stay current on the needs of industry and what our students need to learn to be successful in their careers. Many advisory board members provide internships to PTC students allowing them to apply their classroom education in a real world setting.
