Based at NYU's School of Engineering located along Brooklyn's Innovation Coastline, our program is an integral part of the tech scene in the borough — and throughout the city. 

Offering wide-ranging coursework in technology, engineering, design, and art, we open pathways for multidisciplinary exploration and inspiration. Our students share space with students, researchers, artists, and innovators from a variety of NYU programs and schools, including Center for Urban Science and ProgressTisch School of the ArtsSteinhardt. Melding programming and design, they learn to build the tools they need to bring their groundbreaking visions to life.
