Siemens hires you: In-person presentation of job opportunities by Siemens managers on Friday, May 6th at 2:00 PM at v511  

Massage from Professor Andy Zhang,

Three years ago, six managers from the various department of Siemens came to v511 to talk about the job opportunities at Siemens. In the end, Siemens hired 3 of our graduates among the attendees. Now Siemens would like to do another in-person presentation of job opportunities in Siemens and interview and collect resumes from our students. 
I have made an arrangement for Siemens managers to come on Friday, May 6th at 2:00 PM.  

Please attend this in-person event by Siemens

Subway Attack in New York City

Dear MECH faculty, CLTs, and COA

The gun violence in the Sunset Park station yesterday was horrible for our community. If you find students who are struggling with anxiety and terrified to come to Voorhees using the subway, please ask them to stay home until they feel safe. Meanwhile, you can record/live your in-person lecture or give any accommodation for study-from-home situations. Please emphasize that students will not be penalized for remote attendance. Also, if necessary, please advise them to contact the Counselling Center below.

Dr. Masato Nakamura

Students can contact the City Tech Counseling Center or find additional services here.
Faculty and staff can turn to the employee assistance program

Some sections are full

Dear MECH/IND students,

We still have several months before the fall semester starts. There are some students who registered too much and will start dropping some. Please keep checking cunyfirst and see if someone drops a seat. Meanwhile, put your info on the enrollment wishlist.

Need to courses more? Enter your info on Enrollment Wish List:

If we have a lot of students who would like to take a class, we can open a new section after I found an instructor who can teach the class.

Don’t give up.
