As part of Queensborough Community College’s commitment to educate youth and develop the next generation of STEM leadership, BTECH was created as a public-private partnership with the New York City Department of Education, multinational software corporation, SAP, and the Early College Initiative at CUNY. Based on the IBM P-Tech model, BTECH is an early college high school where students are dual-enrolled in high school and college at the same time for up to six years. This program model increases the opportunity for students to earn their high school diploma and associates degree; free of charge, at Queensborough Community College. It also allows students who are academically proficient to further advance. Early college high schools are one solution to the STEM field’s growing need for experienced professionals.

Students attending the Business Technology Early College High School (BTECH) will learn how to help the world run better by using technology to solve everyday problems. Students will become expert readers, writers, and critical thinkers with the technical skills necessary to succeed in our modern information-based global economy. During their six years at BTECH, hands-on job training in the form of apprenticeships or internships will be made available to every student through SAP (an international enterprise software development company) and their partners. Upon graduation, students will have the knowledge, skills, work experience, and technical education they need to be competitive candidates for employment and four-year degree programs.
