NYIT Cyber-Security Talk

About the Research Program

When it comes to technology, NYIT understands that significant learning occurs outside the classroom. This realization is the driving force behind the development of a faculty-mentored program to help students gain knowledge and take advantage of global, technology-oriented opportunities. The NYIT Research Experience for Undergraduates will provide an enhanced opportunity for talented and ambitious undergraduate students to collaborate with NYIT faculty and graduate students on today's cutting-edge research.

Students who are accepted into the program will spend 10 weeks in the heart of New York City conducting important research with teammates and distinguished faculty members on topics related to cyber security in mobile devices. Students will be assigned to a project and mentor based on their research interests, and will work toward creating a final poster presentation on their work throughout the summer. The research projects require full-time commitment from participants (5 days a week/40 hours per week), and students may not work while in the program. The ultimate goal of the REU program is to prepare students for successful STEM careers and further study at the graduate level in their chosen discipline, and to give them the tools and opportunities to present their work at conferences. In addition to the rigorous academic schedule, REU participants will visit labs in the NYC region, attend workshops and networking events, and go on field trips to locations around the city.
