My Courses

ENGR 1001 | Exploring Engineering Technology | Summer 2023

ENGR 1001 | Exploring Engineering Technology | Summer 2023

A project-based introduction to engineering with a focus on Mechanical, Electrical, and Computer Engineering Technologies. A comprehensive overview of these exciting fields that goes beyond theory and textbook knowledge by providing hands-on experience through the development of an automated robotic system that emulates real-world applications. An opportunity to explore different options and learn about the exciting career opportunities available in each area. Students gain a deep understanding of the practical applications of engineering and develop the basic skills needed to succeed in the field.

Senior Design Project

Senior Design Project

This is a follow-up course of the two product design courses (IND 3610, Product Design I, and IND 4710, Product Design II). It provides graduating students a hand-on opportunity to practice concurrent engineering design. It requires students to pull all the knowledge and skills they acquired in early courses and apply them towards the design and implementation of a product thus giving the students an opportunity to experience team-based design under conditions that closely resemble current industry practice. Students will also develop and sharpen skills in team organization, time management, self-discipline, and technical writing, in order to be successful in this course.

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate Research

Realizing the value of the research experience at the undergraduate level, this project is committed to fostering research opportunities for City Tech students. Faculty and students can use this project as a place to share announcements about research opportunities, as well as a place to offer information about the experiences students and faculty have had in their research endeavors. A handbook on effective mentoring, developed by the Undergraduate Research Committee, is currently available for download.

AI and Automation Lab & Club – Undergraduate Research Initiative (URI) for AI, Robotics, and Aut

AI and Automation Lab & Club – Undergraduate Research Initiative (URI) for AI, Robotics, and Aut

A $540,000 Grant from the Department of Defense (DoD) to establish an Undergraduate Research Initiative (URI), a research and education hub that will further enhance the college’s very successful robotics program, initiated with an NSF ATE grant in 2010. This will enable us to create new hands-on research activities and enhance experience-based learning approaches in our curriculum in order to address the DoD’s needs for graduates in STEM fields with multidisciplinary engineering knowledge armed with AI, robotics, and automation programming skills.

Technician Training for Advanced Manufacturing and Materials

Technician Training for Advanced Manufacturing and Materials

The NSF sponsored project, titled “An Inclusive Model for a Bridge to Industry and Entrepreneurship in Advanced Materials and Manufacturing,” is a collaborative effort between the Department of Mechanical Engineering Technology at City Tech and the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at NYU. It aims to develop a new curriculum component that combines virtual and hands-on training in customized programs within an industry setting. The primary objectives of the project are to provide students with an in-depth understanding of advanced manufacturing, engineering materials, and entrepreneurship. By incorporating hands-on training in an industry environment, students will gain practical experience and develop the necessary skills for successful careers in these fields.

A Living Laboratory

A Living Laboratory

Welcome! “A Living Laboratory: Revitalizing General Education for a 21st Century College of Technology” is a major grant-funded project centered on the idea of using City Tech and its location as a “living lab.” Visit our site to learn more – and if you are a member of the OpenLab community, you can also get involved by joining the project.

My Clubs
