The Computing Center is participating as a business parter in the newest P-Tech partnership. P-TECH Round 4 Winning Partnerships Will Help Students Earn Associate’s Degrees and Prepare For High Skill Jobs
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo in late May 2018 announced six winners in the fourth round of the New York State Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) partnership awards. These newly awarded public-private educational partnerships add to the growing number of New York high school students currently preparing for high-skill jobs in technology, manufacturing and healthcare-related fields. Students will earn an associate degree at no cost to their families and will be first in line for jobs with participating companies when they graduate.

“This nation-leading program is transforming our education system by providing students the tools and experience they need to succeed in the competitive global workforce,” Governor Cuomo said. “These P-TECH awards are enabling New York’s young, bright minds to develop and grow, and I am proud to support these innovative partnerships as they prepare the next generation of leaders for the opportunities of the future.”
“I have visited students who are benefitting from the P-TECH program all over the State, and I have seen firsthand how it changes their view of their own potential,” said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. “As New York’s economy continues to grow, the number one concern I hear from employers is the need for more skilled workers. With this latest round of P-TECH Awards, New York is investing in our workforce by preparing high school students for jobs of the future in technology and manufacturing. Providing our students with the resources they need to succeed in the job market is a smart strategy for continued economic progress.”
