Dean Institute of Technology, formerly West Penn Tech, established in 1947,
has achieved an enviable success record in the training and placing of thousands of graduates.
With over 65 Years of experience in technology training, we have unquestionable insight
as to what it takes to qualify you in a new and demanding career as a highly skilled craftsman.

Originally located in Downtown Pittsburgh, the school moved to its present facility in 1969.  Founded by the late Dr. John Renwick Dean, the school became Dean Institute of Technology at the time of the move.  Dean Tech remains completely owned and operated by the Dean family.  Dean Tech is a nationally accredited Trade and Technical School offering technical training which will prepare the graduate for employment opportunities.  Students are required to develop a high degree of proficiency and skill in their work before they can qualify for a diploma or be eligible for the Occupational Associate Degree (AST).

Our methods, procedures, individualized instruction, standard textbooks, and excellent facilities promote an efficient and progressive school.  Dean Tech is proud of its high standards and the success of its graduates, and assures its students of the continued efforts to promote the efficiency of their training and welfare.

Admission is granted without reference to race, religion, age, sex, or national origin, or disability (as long as such disability is not harmful to the individual or others in the workplace).  We welcome qualified students, as well as faculty and staff from all racial, religious, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
