We provide a number of additional resources to expand your education, beyond your course work in our 58 career-focused degrees. As a City Tech student, you are eligible to access free software and enriching cultural activities. Following are highlights of the many reasons why now is a great time to be a City Tech student:

  • Class scheduling options to meet your needs and fit your schedule:
    Synchronous fully online courses - engage in class at scheduled times without the commute (instructional mode = Online, start and end time listed)
    Asynchronous fully online courses - engage in class at your convenience (instructional mode = Online, no start and end time listed)
    In-person classes - hands-on learning using state-of-the-art equipment (instructional mode = P, in person). Note - very few courses meet solely in-person in fall 2021
    Partially online (hybrid) classes - some meetings in person, some online - have the best of both of the above features through partially online sections (instructional mode = Hybrid)
