Pathways in Technology (P-TECH) at STEAM Academy is a partnership between Mohawk College and IBM which enables students to earn both an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and a College Diploma simultaneously.
Over a five-year period, students earn their OSSD and a two-year Ontario College Diploma in Software Engineering.
While in the P-TECH program students will:
- take regular high school courses required to earn their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
- take paired credit and dual credit courses with Mohawk College instructors and their high school teachers required to earn a college diploma.
- participate in real work experiences with industry partners, exploring various careers through internship, coaching and mentoring.
