Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications (CATT)
Creating economic impact through research, technology transfer, and faculty entrepreneurship.
The Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications and Distributed Information Systems (CATT) promotes industry-university collaborative research and development. Our mission, guided by the mission of our funding agency, is to create economic impact through research, technology transfer, and faculty entrepreneurship. The CATT is sponsored by the New York State’s Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR). Located at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, long-recognized as one of the best engineering schools in the country, the center draws on the expertise of over 50 researchers. Our team consists of leaders in the fields of electrical engineering and computer science. In addition to NYU Tandon School of Engineering faculty, the center also draws on the expertise of key researchers at Columbia University and New York University.
