In keeping with our recent theme, this week we’re going to highlight some clubs from around the OpenLab.  Enjoy!


Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EESL)


EESL is Professor Masato R. Nakamura’s research group based on Mechanical Engineering Department in New York City College of Technology (City Tech), City University of New York (CUNY). This Lab is a research group, not a 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 your resume strong (R&D skills, publication, professional presentation) and will be a huge advantage for finding an engineering position or being accepted or transfer to other graduate schools for obtaining master or doctoral degree.





As the club site creators write, “The music club was created to group together City Tech students who want to exercise their musical abilities. I expect to meet with members once a week on Thursdays during club hours (12:40pm-2:00pm). Ideally the club can  give us a chance to participate in school events and perform. We also have the chance to get to know other members within the club who share similar interests in music.”




Theatreworks, the resident theatre company at New York City College of Technology, is composed of students, alumni, faculty, staff and community members. Founded in 1974, Theatreworks has been recognized in the media and theater circles for its commitment to professionalism in performance, technology and the advancement of multicultural casting and crews in plays, videos, musicals, dance and other events. This unique approach to theatre has given Theatreworks citywide recognition and an audience from the greater New York area. Theatreworks is now performing in the state-of-the-art Voorhees Theatre, where a haunted hotel, the Gravesend Inn, has opened each October to hundreds of spectators for over 13 years. Each spring semester a resident group is hosted on campus to work with the Theatreworks students. Student technicians receive valuable training by participating in the lighting, sound, costume, video, publicity and scenery crews for performances each year. Theatreworks alumni can be found in the professional theater, in television and concert venues, and working with many theater-related companies in their respective communities. For further information about Theatreworks, call Professor Chip Scott in the Entertainment Technology Office in the Voorhees Building, room V 205, at 718.260.5590 or

That’s all for this week!
