PITTSBURGH (July 13, 2017) – Triangle Tech, a two-year degree granting technical school with six locations throughout Pennsylvania, was named to the first-ever Forbes Magazine list of top 30 two-year degree trade schools.

We’re also pleased that the education we provide meets the needs of employers who are searching for highly skilled technicians.”
