ARISE is an opportunity-based program focused on providing rigorous lab experience under the mentorship of some of NYU's cutting-edge research faculty. The program is a 7-week full-day summer program on-site at the Tandon and Washington Square campuses. It is open to students living in New York City with strong interests in careers in STEM fields. Students are trained in college-level research, expository writing, scientific methods, professional development, and ethics, then conclude the program at a professional poster presentation and colloquium.


This program covers interdisciplinary topics and STEM disciplines such as Bio-and Molecular Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Robotics, Computer Science, AI, and Machine Learning via hands-on work in research labs.

My time in ARISE has solidified my path to becoming an engineer. At the start, I had no idea what type of engineer I wanted to be, but after participating in the program I learned about the different paths that I could take and now I want to be a mechanical or chemical engineer. I loved the community and events we could take part in aside from working in our labs."
