Electronics Technology students at SUN Area Technical Institute receive a world-class education that provides college-level coursework and the potential to earn college credits.

This is possible through the PC Now program from Penn College of Technology.  This program provides students with the opportunity to earn college credits by integrating Penn College curriculum and instruction by Penn College professors directly into your students education at SUN Tech. Pictured here are Electronics Technology instructor Mr. Len Schwartz and Penn College Associate Professor of Electronics Mr. Jeff Rankinen assisting students in the electronics lab. This team teaching approach has yielded many successful students who have obtained college degrees and rewarding career placements in the world of work.

Joe Weisser, SUN Tech’s Cooperative Coordinator states, “Instructor Rankinen was a World Class Professor when I worked with him in The Technology and Engineering School at Penn College. To see Instructors Rankinen and Schwartz Team Teach is a wonderful gift and a great gift to the students in the Susquehanna Valley.”

After a successful year at SUN Tech, these students receive 12 college credits and have advance standing at their college.
