QC TechClub – Designers Needed!

The Queens College TechClub was created to provide students with real-world projects and experience. Most of the companies that students have the opportunity to work with are smaller businesses or start-ups. The majority of their current projects involve web development (i.e., creating layouts and various visual aspects of the website) and they are currently seeking at most two (2) designers to help in this process. However, as TechClub grows and obtains more projects the need of more members will arise. Designer students will work in collaboration with Queens College computer science students to create these projects from the ground up as a team for actual clients.

For more information you can view their website or contact Carlos Beltran at carlos@techclub.nyc.
