About Our Department

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering excels in research, teaching, and learning in the computer-related sciences and engineering. We are at the forefront of research in many strategic areas of computer science and engage with the broader community—at Polytechnic, NYU, New York City, and beyond—to impact progress in computing and information technology. We recruit and train the most talented students, creating the next generation of leaders in computer science and engineering.

As is evident in our department's name, much of our research and pedagogy stresses the engineering side of computer science. We consider ourselves one of the top five small computer science departments in the United States since we are one of a handful of CS departments with fewer than seventeen research faculty ranked by the U.S. News & World Report.
