Give them a round of app-lause!

New York City College of Technology opened a new facility on May 19 at which students are taught how to use software to develop new apps and other tech training — a positive addition to the college’s curriculum, according students.

“I benefit greatly from it,” said Shanardo Sharpe, a City University of New York employee enrolled in the program. “I believe that it will be an excellent source for people who are technology-savvy or who are just technology enthusiasts to further their skills in application development.”

Students at the new Downtown computer lab, called the Center of Excellence, are trained to use a software called Mongoose, which was created by the Manhattan-based tech company Infor.

The organization provides City Tech students with internships and other professional opportunities, so working with it on the new facility and curriculum was a no-brainer, according to a college spokeswoman.

“The best next step for the City University of New York really was to have a dedicated space with this company that has demonstrated an amazing commitment to really give our students an extra set of skills and marketability with the tools that they’ve learned,” said City Tech’s Faith C. Corbett.
