Cornell NYC Tech: A New Take on Graduate Education & Research

CISE Distinguished Lecture - Daniel Huttenlocher

April 18, 2013 10:30 AM  to 
April 18, 2013 11:30 AM
NSF Room 110

Abstract:

Cornell NYC Tech is a new graduate campus in the heart of New York City, established as a result of Mayor Bloomberg's applied sciences competition in 2011. The campus began operations last July in temporary quarters donated by Google, and enrolled a small "beta" class of Computer Science Master of Engineering students this January. It will move to its permanent location on Roosevelt Island in 2017. Cornell Tech is creating a new culture of graduate education and research which combines deep expertise in high-tech disciplines with interdisciplinary programs that engage scholars, companies and nonprofits from a broad range of areas. A key component of the new campus is the Technion-Cornell Innovation Institute, which has a particular focus on interdisciplinary research with commercial impact. This talk will discuss the goals, initial programs and longer-term plans for this innovative new campus.
