The majority of the College of Technology grads have an average starting salary of $44,000, well above the national mean.
The mission of the College of Technology is to be the center for excellence in technology for the state of Kansas. The college assumes this leadership role through programs in five departments: Automotive Technology, Engineering Technology, Graphics and Imaging Technologies, Technology Management and Technology Studies. The building, which is almost 280,000 square feet, includes over 13 computer labs with approximately 260 workstations and close to 70 technical laboratories for student learning.
The labs throughout the Kansas Technology Center feature up-to-date equipment, much of it provided by industry and corporate partners of Pittsburg State University. Approximately $26 million worth of equipment has been secured through donation, equipment loan or purchase.
