Brooklyn College CUNY2X

CUNY 2X Tech is an initiative to double the number of CUNY students graduating annually with a tech-related bachelor’s degree prepared to launch careers in the NYC tech ecosystem. Designed in partnership with NYC Tech Talent Pipeline industry and academic leaders, this five-year, multi-million dollar initiative brings together CUNY senior colleges and NYC tech employers to better align tech education with industry needs and expand access to quality tech careers. This is done through monthly workshops. To be added to the mailing list email 2xtechteam@gmail.com

Brooklyn College Tech Talent Pipeline Residency (TTP)

The Brooklyn College Tech Talent Pipeline (TTP) Residency is a 1.5 year experience that connects computer science majors with NYC businesses. Students enroll in the TTP Residency where they participate in pre-internship training during the summer, fall and spring that provides students with knowledge of web development and soft skills. Upon completion of the training, participants begin a paid internship at NYC businesses in web, mobile developer, or software engineering roles the following summer. After completion of the internship, Residents work with the TTP team on their job search to then land full-time roles in the field upon their graduation (Please note Residents are not guaranteed the internship placement; students must put in the work to have the best possible chance to be matched with an employer). For more information about TTP Residency contact ttpresidencybrooklyn@gmail.com
