Encyclopedia > New York City College of Technology

New York City College of Technology, called New York City Technical College prior to 2002 and nicknamed City Tech, is the largest four-year technical school in the northeastern United States, and one of three colleges within the City University of New York (CUNY) system to grant, within the same institution, both associate's and bachelor's degrees (the others being the College of Staten Island, and John Jay College, both of which also offer postbaccalaurete degrees). Located in the Borough of Brooklyn, City Tech boasts an enrollment of over 10,000 students in 43 vocational programs including several engineering technology fields as well as construction, nursing, hospitality management, dental hygiene and paralegal training, including specialized certification programs, two-year technical programs, and four-year baccalaureate programs. Non-degree continuing education is also offered.

City Tech is one of the oldest institutions in the CUNY system, tracing its history to 1881 when Voorhees Technical Institute was founded in Brooklyn. City Tech merged with Voorhees in 1971 shortly after the creation of CUNY.
