Department Mission Statement
The theme park, the arena concert, the trade show, the Broadway theater—all are venues for graduates of the Entertainment Technology (ENT) baccalaureate program. The only one of its kind in the Northeast, and one of the few in the world, the program trains students in cutting-edge technologies of sound, lighting, scenery, video and show control.
Emerging Media Technologies (MTEC) is our second baccalaureate program, an interdisciplinary program that integrates media design, computing and engineering. The program provides comprehensive overviews and hands-on experiences in game design and interactive media, media computation, music technology, and physical computing.
ENT and MTEC students can join clubs such as City Tech Theatreworks, The Stagecraft Club, The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers Student Chapter, City Tech E-Sports Club, and Experiential Art and Design (EXP) Club. Students may engage in other opportunities such as internships and industry field trips in New York City. The department also offers unique collaborations with external producing organizations, artists, and designers to develop technologically sophisticated productions and interdisciplinary projects.
Options for Employment and Further Study
In Entertainment Technology, we train students for careers backstage at concerts, corporate and special events, cruise ship shows, television studios, sports venues, theaters, theme parks, trade shows, and even pro wrestling events. Our Emerging Media Technologies program is a hybrid of design and engineering that trains students for careers in human-computer interaction, app development, 3D modeling, computer game production, interactive media systems design, and tangible computation in the contemporary media and arts fields.
