My Projects

First Year Experience Committee

First Year Experience Committee

As a committee we are working on enhancing our new student orientation process. We are assessing and enhancing all steps from the moment a student is accepted into the college to their first year experience. The departments involved in the pilot are: African American Studies, Architectural Technology, Computer Systems Technology, Construction Management and Civil Engineering Technology, Dental Hygiene, English, Entertainment Technology, Hospitality Management, Human Services, Nursing, and Radiologic Technology & Medical Imaging.

CUNY Service Corps

CUNY Service Corps

The CUNY Service Corps will mobilize CUNY students, faculty and staff to work on projects that improve the short and long-term civic, economic and environmental sustainability of New York City and of its residents and communities. The program’s goals are three-fold: for students to make a meaningful difference through service while gaining valuable real-world work experience, earning a wage, and where appropriate, receiving college credit; for faculty members and staff, through their work with students in the program, to have additional opportunities to apply their expertise to addressing many of the city’s key challenges; and for residents, communities, and project sponsors to realize concrete benefits as a result of CUNY Service Corps 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.

Project Wayfinding

Project Wayfinding

Project Wayfinding is a college-wide effort to answer the question “How can Faculty, staff, and students effectively provide/use accurate information for academic career planning from Day 1 through Graduation?”

My Clubs

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.
