That's our school!
President praises P-TECH in State of the
P-TECH, the school in Brooklyn that President Obama made note of last night in his State of the Union message, is the result of a vibrant collaboration among City Tech, CUNY's Early College Initiative, the NYC Department of Education, and IBM. City Tech is the college partner. This semester, 10 sections of City Tech college classes are being held at the school. As they complete their high school programs, students will enroll full-time in our Computer Systems Technology and Computer Engineering Technology programs with opportunities for jobs at IBM and other companies when they graduate. I want to acknowledge the great work and tremendous assistance of City Tech faculty and staff in bringing this exciting model to fruition:
