2 + 2 Program Guide: 2 + 2 Tech-Prep Associate Degree Program.
The 2 + 2 Tech-Prep Associate Degree Program at the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) is a high school/community college partnership which provides an alternative program of study for students who are enrolled in general education or vocational programs. Students are targeted for the program in grade 10 and begin the program in grade 11 at the secondary level. The 2 + 2 curriculum at the secondary level is an occupational core curriculum that highlights goal setting and development, as well as practical application. Students enrolling in the 2 + 2 program take Principles of Technology, English (with the Applied Communications component where available), and Math in grades 11 and 12. Students who successfully complete the high school portion of the 2 + 2 program are guaranteed acceptance into the technical programs at CCRI. Following the format of the tech-prep curriculum as a whole, specific articulated degree curricula have been developed for chemical technology, computer engineering technology, electronics, electronic engineering technology, engineering, instrumentation technology, machine design, machine processes, and mechanical engineering technology. Course sequences for each of the tech-prep curricula are included in the program guide. An appendix provides sample placement test questions. (JMC)
