ENG 2000 Perspectives in LIterature Fall 2015

ENG 2000 Perspectives in LIterature Fall 2015

This course will introduce you to reading and writing across genres. The course will focus on readings that explore concepts of identity in America and the ways in which race, class, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity intersect to shape one’s experience, sense of self and understanding of the world. Through an analysis of contemporary American literary texts, and situating them in their historical, political and social contexts, we will examine the relationship between literary narratives and larger political and social movements. To do so, we will supplement our analysis of the literary texts with theoretical inquiry and historical research to develop a fuller understanding of the social and cultural significance of each work.

IND 2401 – Furniture design

IND 2401 – Furniture design

Introduces art and science used in designing furniture. Topics include: Fundamental ideas of function and social use; Form, spatial organization, and typological orders; Structural integrity and composition; The design principles and design process; Materials selection and fabrication processes; Marketing and professional practice; and an historical overview of furniture design. Includes hands-on design projects.

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.

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?
