Overview

Under CUNY TechWorks, Queensborough Community College (QCC) will offer an applied software development training covering web client programming, systems design and implementation, and smart phone application development. This hands-on, tech skills training program will culminate in a capstone application development class focused on building students’ professional programming portfolios.

Credits earned can be applied towards our AAS degree in Information and Internet Technology. For QCC, CUNY TechWorks is first and foremost an employment and training program. Through regional industry partnerships, we will develop internship pathways that provide defined, work-based learning opportunities for participants to gain additional practical experiences.

Additionally, QCC will provide students with career readiness support to help them successfully transition into New York City’s booming tech sector.
