As the size of our planet becomes smaller due to the increased interconnectivity of people through devices, shared information and enhanced communication, we find ourselves at a crossroads in Computer Science & Engineering. No longer are we just seeking theory, but in fact we are focusing on making, collaborating across fields and creating opportunities within both software and hardware that are inherently safe and allow for even greater data transfer. Engineering is Computer Science.
Located in the burgeoning Brooklyn Tech Triangle, the Computer Science and Engineering Department offers world-class research opportunities under the direction of dedicated faculty. The department excels in varied focus areas ranging from data management to game engineering. An extracurricular calendar of events and competitions, such as CSAW, the Alt-Ctrl Game Jam, and related hack nights, give students ample opportunities to work among their peers while gaining real-world experience that prepare them for their future careers.
FOR PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS:

Motivational Environments: Personalized Cyberlearning, Intelligent Creativity Support, and Health Technology Innovation. Speaker: Winslow Burleson (NYU). Advances in wearable and ambient sensors, responsive spaces, robots and relational agents present transformative opportunities to develop context and affect aware systems for Personalized Learning, Intelligent Creativity Support, and Open Health Innovation. Affective Learning Companions, real-time multi-modal characters, empowered by rich student models and machine learning, are beginning to sense and respond to learners’ affective cues. Coupling these with creativity research methodologies and support strategies, the Motivational Environments research group is advancing empirical investigations towards Intelligent Creativity Support. Inventors’ Workshops (open online and physical, peer supported and expert mentored, communities) advance open health innovations, including, STEM Nursing and NYU Holodeck. These projects and systems are advancing state-of-the-art cyberlearning, human-computer interaction, and open health innovation, through novel methods, theories, technologies, architectures, and environments. Friday, January 30th, 11am, at 2 Metrotech Center, 10th Floor, room 10.099.
Cybersecurity Summer Research and Training for College Faculty and High School Teachers. The NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering CSAW Cybersecurity Summer Research and Training Program provides a unique opportunity for computer science faculty at two- and four-year colleges and high school teachers to receive instruction in the fundamental concepts of cybersecurity, engage in cutting-edge research projects, and learn to mentor cybersecurity competition teams. The effort is part of a three-year program sponsored by the National Science Foundation, in conjunction with the NYU School of Engineering's CSE Department. Both programs run from July 6-August 24. Space is limited. Apply for the college and high school faculty programs.

Abstract and mathematical aspects of computing
Juliana Freire, a professor of computer science and engineering, has been named a fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society. Freire’s cutting-edge work has made possible significant advances in the management, integration, analysis, and visualization of big data—essential work given the widely cited estimate that we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data each day.

Each year, SPIE promotes members as new Fellows of the Society. Fellows are Members of distinction who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging. Prof. Memon has been named a Fellow for achievements in multimedia security and lossless image compression. Read more.
"I am pleased to tell you about the many great things that are happening in at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engneering."
The department's newest course aims to take an interdisciplinary approach, exploring the intersection between games, technology, education, psychology, and culture.
"Our program helps worldwide students come together and obtain the very strong background and skills that will lead them well into the job market—at Wall St., major tech companies, or within the government."
—Prof. Justin Cappos
"The School of Engineering is one of the best universities in the US, especially for computer science. Every professor I've had has been so proficient in their field that it's a privilege to learn from them."

Commitment to Teaching
"The specific technologies that we study certainly matter, but they will change in a few years, so it is less important which ones we teach than how we convey the importance of learning."
—Prof. John Sterling
