CUNY Tech Prep is an industry-informed program for exceptional computer science students in the CUNY senior college system. Developed and delivered with the CUNY Institute for Software Design and Development and industry leaders, CUNY Tech Prep is designed to provide students with industry exposure to software development and a connection to tech jobs post-graduation.
The NYC Tech Talent Pipeline is a $10 million industry partnership designed to support the growth of the City’s tech sector and deliver quality jobs for New Yorkers and quality talent for New York’s businesses.
Our technical curriculum focuses on full stack web development, from design and architecture to testing and deployment. At each stage, our teachers help students learn and apply the tools, concepts, and processes - Git, TDD and automated testing, CI/CD, agile, web security, etc. - desired by high-tech employers.
Collaborating on open source projects with real-world applications, students will stretch their existing development and teamwork skills.
It takes more than being a coding whiz to find a job. Our staff guides students to build a network of colleagues, contacts, and mentors from NYC's tech sector. Our career coaches meet with students one-on-one, covering soft skills from resume crafting to behavioral interviewing. Meanwhile, our industry partners offer guest lectures throughout the year, offering into their business practices and giving feedback on students’ technical and professional development.
