A group of undergraduate engineering students at New York University is working with industry mentors, faculty members and each other ot design a high-speed pod that could contribute to the future of travel. Some of their peers are designing a standalone system that will be able to turn used plastic bottles into 3D printing material. Others are exploring the potential for emerging technologies and their interactions with humans to contribute to innovative health care.
These projects are among the first to be tackled by participants in NYU’s Vertically Integrated Projects program.
