Welcome to CUNY TechWorks

Launched in January 2017, CUNY Techworks is a US Department of Labor federally funded initiative of CUNY’s Office of Continuing Education and Workforce Programs (CEWP).

Its mission is to connect underrepresented and low-income New Yorkers to the growing number of opportunities in New York City’s thriving tech sector via no-cost, applied skills education and training in software application development, web design and development, and IT systems administration.

Collaborating with the city’s tech employers and industry representatives, as well as our three community college partners- Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC), Kingsborough Community College (KCC), and Queensborough Community College (QCC) – CUNY CEWP and its partners have created three program tracks featuring a dynamic mix of industry-aligned academic coursework and practical skills trainings designed to give participating students the right mix of hands-on, real world tech skills needed by local companies.

CUNY TechWorks offers participants the opportunity to receive relevant, skill-based trainings for in-demand tech careers, and if they choose, earn credit to continue on a degree pathway in computer networking, internet and information technology, or multimedia design if they choose – thanks to the integration of its training tracks into related applied associate degree (A.A.S) programs.

To support participants’ successful transition into jobs, TechWorks’ programs will provide a range of career development supports such as tech sector job readiness prep, career coaching, and job placement assistance to help connect program graduates to employment opportunities and hiring companies to a new pool of qualified tech talent

This initiative also presents an opportunity for faculty, employers, and industry to collaborate and strengthen career pipelines. If you hire and/or scout talent in the field and want to share your insights, click here to learn how you can get involved.
