The College Board and Project Lead The Way (PLTW) have partnered on a program to encourage student participation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses and build their interest in STEM degrees and careers.

The main element of the partnership is a set of college and career pathways in three fields—engineering, biomedical science, and computer science—that incorporate both AP and PLTW courses. Students who complete the requirements of one or more of these pathways can be awarded the AP + PLTW Student Achievement, a qualification that demonstrates to colleges and employers that the student is ready for advanced coursework and interested in careers in this discipline.

To learn more about the menu of courses students can combine to earn the AP + PLTW Student Achievement, the criteria for earning the award, and the partnership between AP and Project Lead the Way, visit AP + Project Lead The Way on Advances in AP.
