The Capital Region P-TECH program is an engaging, four- to six-year program (grades 9-14) that prepares students for future careers in the field of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through hands-on, project based learning. Depending on their interests, students will study at one of two Capital Region sites beginning their freshman year and remain there for the duration of the program. Each site offers a distinct pathway that leads to an associate’s degree from a neighboring college in Computer Science, Computer Information Systems or Cybersecurity.

As a Capital Region PTECH campus, Watervliet students are eligible and highly encouraged to apply!
