New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) has opened registration for its annual career-oriented summer programs at campuses in Manhattan (Columbus Circle) and Old Westbury, Long Island. The seven programs, known collectively as NYIT Academy, begin as early as July 9, with the last session ending on August 3. Sessions last between one and four weeks, depending on the program.
High school students who want to experience Manhattan as a college student can attend one of the following technology-focused summer programs. (Most grant college credit for successful completion.)
- Exploring Architecture in Manhattan (4 weeks; 3 college credits; NYIT School of Architecture and Design). Experience four weeks of architecture immersion, including studio design activities, field trips, and lectures.
- Graphic Design and 3-D Animation/Game Design (1-3 weeks; 1 credit per week; NYIT College of Arts and Sciences). This workshop will help you build your digital portfolio with projects in 3-D printing, photography, illustration, 3-D animation, and more.

For the Manhattan-based programs, NYIT Academy offers the option to add Campus Life Immersion. The immersion program allows for an all-inclusive experience similar to summer camp, with a package of cultural, social, and volunteer experiences in addition to housing, meals, and transportation.
High school students who prefer Long Island can attend one or more of the following NYIT Academy summer programs:

- Makers and Fabricators (2 weeks; 2 credits; NYIT School of Engineering and Computing Sciences). Take an idea from paper to assembly using metal, plastic, acrylic, wood, or other materials while growing your skill set in a safe environment.
- Technology and Engineering Experience (2 weeks; 2 credits; NYIT School of Engineering and Computing Sciences). Explore coding, robotics, materials science, and other elements of careers in technology, engineering, and computer science (offered in both Long Island and Manhattan).
NYIT offers bachelor’s, master’s, and professional degrees in applied, career-oriented fields, and faculty members involved in the annual summer programs are eager to introduce their fields to students aged 15-20. “Being engaged in a design studio culture to develop an architectural project is a great way to gauge your interest in the field,” said Clara Ha, adjunct faculty at NYIT School of Architecture and Design. Students in all NYIT Academy summer programs will have hands-on learning experiences as well as memorable cultural and social experiences.
