Explore our Computer Science programs designed to create opportunities for high school and college students and faculty, within the NYU community and beyond.
The following is a list of Computer Science programs designed to create opportunities for high school and college students and faculty, within the NYU community and beyond.
- Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering (ARISE): This selective program is for academically strong, current 10th and 11th grade New York City students with a demonstrated interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)
- Career Discovery in Cybersecurity: A Women's Symposium: An annual conference that brings together some of the best minds in the industry, with the goal of guiding women with a talent and interest in cybersecurity into top-flight careers.
- CSAW Summer Research and Training for College Faculty: A unique opportunity for computer science faculty at two- and four-year colleges in the United States 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 Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
- CTFd: Capture the Flags (CTFs) are how those in the computer industry test each other. As part of CSAW at the School of Engineering, an annual CTF event is also hosted. This open-sourced version of CTF is now available and free to use. CTFs are one of the fastest growing educational mediums and their versatility in both testing and teaching is unmistakable.
- GenCyber Computer Science for Cyber Security (CS4CS) Summer Program for High School Women: GenCyber CS4CS is a FREE, two-week, full-day summer program providing an introduction for high school women on the fundamentals of cyber security and computer science at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. No background or experience in cyber security or computer programming is needed in order to apply, only your interest and enthusiasm.
- The INformation Security and Privacy Interdisciplinary Research and Education (INSPIRE) Program: An IGERT scholarship to provide the best Ph.D. students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with the opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary research in cybersecurity, information assurance and privacy. As a partnership between the NYU School of Engineering, the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, the Leonard N. Stern School of Business, and faculty from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, INSPIRE is built around the interdisciplinary research projects initiated by our world-class faculty.
- A Scholarship for Service Partnership for Interdisciplinary Research and Education (ASPIRE): An award from the National Science Foundation that prepares its recipients with strong technical training and a security mindset that looks beyond just the technology when approaching problems. The scholarship supports two to three years of stipends, tuition, and allowances for students in the general area of information assurance and cybersecurity.
