Notice Number 7033

The Department of Entertainment Technology in the School of Technology and Design at New York City 
College of Technology invites applications for a full time, tenureItrack position in Interactive and 
Emerging Media Technologies, beginning with the Spring 2013 or Fall 2013 semester and at a rank of 
Assistant Professor.  The department has a record of consistent growth and seeks an individual with 
high energy and motivation to join a worldIclass team of industry experts to further advance the 
department’s activities.

The department offers a distinctive and unique baccalaureate degree in Emerging Media Technologies, 
which is in its third year. We are in the process of defining Emerging Media Technologies and how 
these integrate into a curriculum that must be agile enough to maintain currency in an era of 
breathtakingly rapid change.  Superbly positioned in downtown Brooklyn, steps away from the newly 
planned Media Hub at Brooklyn Navy Yard, and just south of DUMBO (one of NYC’s fastest growing 
centers of media and technology), the college sees unlimited opportunity to develop public/private 
collaboration in the context of education.

Undergraduate instruction is offered in a variety of disciplines, including live performance technologies, 
emerging media technologies, media computation, video production, scenery construction, lighting, 
sound, show control, video systems, music technology, interactive entertainment, and management.  
Program graduates are generalists, well prepared for careers in all genres of media, entertainment, and 
related industries. Students start with a unified set of foundation courses that introduce them to 
required skills, knowledge and processes.  They then elect to specialize in media design, computation, or fabrication.  The core of the program is based around hands on interdisciplinary team projects that 
allow students the ability to work on real world productions under the guidance and mentoring of 
faculty and industry professionals. In addition to their academic studies, they are expected to enhance 
their educational experience with outside activities, including internships and freelance work, in NYC, 
the entertainment and media capital of the world. Based on our effective education in many 
disciplines, our graduates are employed throughout the country.

The facilities include stateIofItheIart laboratories, a dedicated twoIhundred seat theatre, a video 
production studio, and a variety of smaller spaces.  Equipment inventory worth over 2.5 million dollars allows students to gain experience with many different components and systems.  The department
receives support from a number of industry partners, who help to maintain currency of technology.

government organizations and industry. Duties will also include teaching, student advisement,
