CUSP Engagement Opportunities
Get involved with the Center for Urban Science + Progress and start building the cities of tomorrow.
Join the CUSP Network
The CUSP Network is a cohort of professionals who work with CUSP to open lines of communication across urban sectors, to collaborate cross-functionally on important research, to inform the direction of the center, and ultimately to contribute to the improvement of cities around the world.
Sponsor a Capstone
CUSP is proud to host its annual Capstone Program to serve its mission of finding data-driven solutions to increasingly complex urban challenges.
Each year, graduate students in the MS in Applied Urban Science & Informatics degree partner with sponsors and CUSP faculty members to collaborate on a two-semester project that seeks to address a critical urban issue or research problem. Project proposal applications for the 2023 program are now closed.
Partner With Us
Industry professionals, academics, and city employees are invited to both share and learn specialized skills through workshops, data dives, and hackathons to ensure those working in urban science have mastered cutting edge techniques.
Hire CUSP Students
CUSP graduates leave NYU prepared to lead organizations in making more informed decisions by unlocking the potential of urban data. Our alumni are sought after by key city and government agencies around the world as well as leading firms in technology, telecommunications, utilities and renewable energy. Connect with us to learn more about hiring CUSP students for internship or full-time opportunities.
CUSP hosts a variety of events throughout the year to encourage purposeful connection and thought leadership. Hear from guest lecturers, participate in hackathons, or tackle a new skill in our workshops. Surround yourself with like-minded people who are interested in propelling cities forward into the future--and figure out how to do it together.
