Are you interested in using technology to solve urban planning problems? Do the applications of smart and connected devices to improve energy use, public transportation, and pollution excite you?

Apply for the VIP Smart Cities Technology Course

Vertically Integrated Projects are 1 credit hour team research project-based courses. Starting in spring 2017 a new section will focus on smart cities initiatives at NYU. The team will focus on needs of the Report to the President, “Technology and the Future of Cities.”

This opportunity will allow you to physically prototype smart cities technology. Instruction from Tandon, CUSP, Wagner, and Urban Future Labs experts will teach you about smart cities topics. You will have the chance to research and implement Internet of Things devices to help connect New York City through intelligent networks!

Enrollment Requirements for the VIP Smart Cities Section include a 3-semester commitment and Sophomore through Senior status.

A select number of highly motivated students will be chosen for this section. This course allows undergraduate students to get involved in research with professors and graduate students.
