How prominent is research at NYU?

I'm thinking about applying to NYU for my undergraduate degree in computer science. I want to be involved in research opportunities during my college years. Is NYU known as a research university, or should I look elsewhere? Any information is appreciated!

Hi there! It's great to hear that you're interested in both computer science and research. NYU is indeed a research-oriented university, and it offers plenty of opportunities for students to become involved in research projects across various academic disciplines, including computer science.

The Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at NYU, which houses the computer science department, performs cutting-edge research in fields like artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, and more. Faculty members at Courant actively seek student involvement, and there are undergraduate research programs such as the Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program specifically designed for students like you.

While NYU is a strong choice for research opportunities, it's always a good idea to consider multiple universities as well. Be sure to check out the research opportunities at other universities to find a program that aligns best with your interests.

Best of luck in your college search!
