Your college years represent a precious opportunity to gather knowledge, personal strength and resolve for a future that offers unimaginable opportunities for those that have the fortitude to seize them. New York City College of Technology can provide you with these opportunities if you take advantage of the College’s educational offerings and supporting services, and dedicate yourself to reaching your potential.

The College was founded in 1946, under the name “The New York State Institute of Applied Arts and Sciences.” The urgent mission at the time was to provide training to GIs returning from the Second World War and to provide New York with the technically proficient workforce it would need to thrive in the emerging post-war economy. No one in 1946 could have predicted the transformation the College has experienced. From its beginnings as an Institute - to being chartered as a community college in 1957 - and subsequently transitioning to senior college status during the 1980’s - it has grown from serving 246 students in the class of 1947, to a population today of about 17,000 degree-students (about 6,000 in baccalaureate degree programs) and serving over 14,000 others who participate in the continuing education offerings of the College.

Our mission, however, has not changed; It is still urgent, and it is still focused on preparing a technically proficient workforce and well-educated citizens. The College’s offerings encompass the pre-professional, professional and technical programs that respond to regional economic needs and provide access to higher education for all who seek fulfillment of career and economic goals through education. The 65 registered programs offered allow graduates to pursue careers in the architectural and engineering technologies, the computer, entertainment, and health professions, human services, advertising and publishing, hospitality, business, and law-related professions, as well as programs in career and technical teacher education.

These programs extend from the only program in entertainment technology east of the Mississippi to the most award-winning public program in the culinary arts to be found anywhere; from healthcare programs that address critical social needs to a program in applied mathematics that prepares students to design computer-based models needed in the world of high finance; from advertising design and graphic arts programs to a facilities management program that prepares students to manage the star-wars-like control rooms of complex modern high-rise buildings. In essence, the College’s programs are geared to the needs of our students, the professions we support and the commerce that drives our economy.

While technologies have changed and professions have been transformed, what is at the heart of City Tech has remained constant - our basic educational approach. City Tech is a place where dedicated faculty, many joining us after successful professional careers in their chosen fields, work side-by-side with students in laboratory settings. The college was founded as a beacon of opportunity available to those who might not otherwise have access to higher education and it still performs this function today. And just as was true on the chilly morning in February of 1947 when the college first opened its doors, we have one foot in the present and one in the future, keeping our programs aligned with the high-tech workforce needs of tomorrow.

I invite you to explore this Web site to begin your own voyage of discovery through our college and to see for yourself why City Tech is such a unique place, a college that can help you build the future we cannot yet imagine.

More hands on than informative, not in a bad way. Makes you feel confident to change a socket, light switch, or light case. Instructor is great, makes sure everyone is attended to who is showing signs of trouble or is asking for help. Just an overall positive experience, would do again, and am considering the other courses offered with this instructor.
