Bramson ORT College Participates in New York City's Top Technology Event - The Maker Faire



This past weekend, Bramson ORT College participated in New York City's top technology event, The Maker Faire. This event was created by Make Magazine to celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and new inventions. This year, the event attracted around 70,000 people and was hosted at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. Many colleges, schools, sponsors, science enthusiasts and technology corporations and organizations participated in the high tech event of the year. Some of the themes of the exhibit included the latest in 3D printing, robotics, electronics, soldering, tinkering, molding, computer animation and programming. Students showcased their robot kits and latest inventions. The event even had a live circus! Bramson ORT College showcased the work of their top 3D animation, computer programming, electronics, and design students. Robotics Professor, John Howell, gave a speech on Bramson ORT’s latest technology courses.

High-end technology and educational innovation is one of the hallmarks of Bramson ORT College. The college is one of the few NYC schools to have successful programs and courses in renewable energy, robotics, 3d animation, and design. It is no surprise that the non-for-profit school would participate at such a high-end event. Bramson ORT College is accredited by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York. The school encourages students to learn the latest hands-on skills beyond the classroom environment. Last summer, design and gaming students had a chance to showcase their work at the General Assembly of World ORT in Washington D.C. Bramson ORT students presented their work amongst other international ORT students, who showcased their robotics skills and other technological inventions. In addition to industry trips, Bramson ORT College offers internship and job placement services. With a strong Career Services Department, students are able to apply for internships in their field while working towards finishing their two-year degree. The college has over 80% graduate job placement rate! With 19 degrees, online classes, and certificate programs offered, the school has been viewed as an oasis of career opportunities for inner city youth. The Queens and Brooklyn Campuses also offer degrees in Accounting, Business Management, Medical Assistant, Administrative Assistant, Professional Billing and Coding, Electronics Technology, Computer Networking, Renewable Energy, Paralegal and much more.
