The City College of New York has partnered with the NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS) on a new initiative targeted at increasing the number of students graduating with tech-related bachelor’s degrees.

In the fall of 2018, City College was awarded $2.3 million for CUNY 2x Tech, a 5-year, multi-million-dollar program that brings together CUNY senior colleges and NYC tech employers to better align tech education and industry needs.
