IND2313 Industrial Design I Fall 2018 Nakamura

This course introduces students to the field of industrial design. It provides a framework for the development of design methodology. Students will use computers to create visual features of forms, configurations, patterns, and ornaments involved in the product design. Emphases will be placed on the multidisciplinary approach and the integration of design and engineering. Students are required to utilize the knowledge they learned to produce various design projects.

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.

Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EES Lab)

Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EES Lab)

Research Lab Website: openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/eesl/ Lab Profile (this site): openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/groups/energy-and-environmental-simulation-laboratory/ Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EES Lab) is Professor Masato R. Nakamura’s research group based on Mechanical Engineering Department in New York City College of Technology (City Tech), The City University of New York (CUNY). This laboratory is a professional research unit, not a student club, but opens to everyone who would like to conduct research on energy, environmental engineering (including ecodesign), and computing for sustainability. Also, it’s for people who wish to obtain Research and Development (R&D) skills required in a high-level position in the industry and academia. Excellent students can be recommended to become research assistants in order to publish a paper as a co-author, and have an oral presentation in an international conference. These research activities make students’ resume strong (R&D skills, publication, professional presentation) and will be a huge advantage for finding an engineering position or being accepted to graduate schools for Master or doctoral degree. If you are interested in joining EES Lab, please send Professor Masato R. Nakamura (Tel: 718-260-5532, mnakamura@citytech.cuny.edu ) your resume and answers of following questions: 1) What kinds of research fields are you interested in? 2) How many hours per week can you spend for conducting research? 3) Describe your skills/knowledge of math, physics, computers, and experimental work (lab hands-on skills). 4) After finishing your degree program, what kind of industry or graduate school program you’d like to go?

NSF-LSAMP

NSF-LSAMP

The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). LSAMP or AMP aims to increase the percentage of CUNY students enrolled in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors who conduct faculty mentored research prior to graduating or entering industry. Participants of LSAMP receive a stipends up to $4000. The funding is great, but the research experience (locally and abroad) and recommendation letters that participants receive are greater.
