Our admissions staff is friendly and courteous. Their goal is to help you make the right decision about your future.


Erie Institute of Technology offers practical, hands-on career training that can help you jump-start an exciting new career. EIT has been training students in the tristate area for more than 60 years. Whether you’re just starting out of high school, changing careers, or transitioning from the military to civilian life – EIT is there to help you through every step of the enrollment process.

We understand that enrolling in school can feel like a difficult task. Our admissions representatives work hard to make the admissions process as simple and straightforward as possible. They are highly knowledgeable and can answer any questions you may have.

No SAT or ACT test score is required. We believe that standardized tests don’t always accurately reflect a person’s talents, passion, and drive. If you are sincere in your determination to begin a new career, we would like to talk with you further and help you decide if EIT is a fit for you.

If you would like to get a better idea of what EIT is all about, we encourage you to view our virtual tours, but nothing compares to a personal tour guided by one of our admissions representatives. They can give you detailed information about all of our hands-on labs and answer questions as they arise.


Externships are an integral part of several of our programs. In these programs students go out into the field and learn to do the jobs they’ve trained for. Our externship program helps students build confidence through field experience so that when they graduate, they are prepared to enter the work force. Our staff works with each student to find the right externship opportunity for them. Externships can and have led to full-time employment and are a great way to gain referrals.
