I am Dr. Shields, Dean of the School of Technology and Design.
New York City College of Technology, or City Tech for short, has been shaping New York City since 1946. Located in Downtown Brooklyn at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, we are in the heart of the tech industry.
Some points of pride: CUNY is a national engine of economic mobility according to a 2020 Brookings “Middle Class Mobility” report. City Tech ranked 10th of 1,600 colleges nationwide which is a testament to City Tech's mission of providing broad access to high quality technological and professional education for a diverse urban population. We are a Hispanic Serving Institution with a third of our students being of Hispanic heritage.
The School of Technology & Design educates future design professionals in architecture, communications, computer systems, engineering technology, entertainment and facilities management. Our programs are nationally accredited by ABET for the engineering technologies, NAAB for architecture, and NASAD for communication design. Accreditation is the gold standard for our programs and is a direct path to professional licensure in their respective fields.
We offer over 11 associate and 10 bachelor degrees to provide the skills and training you need at any point in your career.
I invite you to discover our many paths to possible here at City Tech. Explore our
department websites, join us for an open house or follow us on social media. We
look forward to you becoming part of the City Tech family!
We are the Public Path to Possible. We are City Tech.
