The Entertainment Technology program offers a unique laboratory and professional focus that is only possible in New York City. Until now, most people working backstage either learned on the job or trained in conservatory-based theatre programs, where the technical students work to support an intensive production schedule built around the needs of actors and directors.
In recent years, however, the world of entertainment technology has dramatically increased in complexity, and the need for specialized and high-tech entertainment technology training has never been greater. The City Tech Entertainment Technology program is at the forefront of this educational revolution. Our students are introduced to the rigors of backstage work in a controlled, protected environment, and then use our faculty's connections to intern (often for pay) with professionals throughout New York City.
