Pittsburgh has been revitalized and with that comes great opportunities for those who live and work here. The city is now a center for growth in renewable energy and is the home of choice for oil and gas companies producing the Marcellus Shale. The nuclear industry is strong, with Westinghouse leading the way. Pittsburgh also continues to be the center for the coal industry in the East. YPE Pittsburgh will provide a blend of cross-discipline networking, career development, and service opportunities to the coal, renewable, and oil and gas industries that has never been experienced in the area.
