PLTW can be developed to meet all requirements for a Career Academy/Tech Prep program. In addition to these requirements, a career academy/tech prep program must align to a program at a community college. This alignment will be determined by each community college and PLTW program. Programs with obvious alignment are manufacturing technology, precision machining. engineering design, architecture design and electronics. Articulation does not mean that every PLTW course will be offered for concurrent credit in a community college program.
