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.

Accepted students will receive:

  • $5,000 Stipend
  • Up to $600 Travel Allowance
  • $2,800 Housing and Food Allowance
  • Graduate School Preparation
  • Visits to state-of-the-art labs, security centers, and attend security conferences
  • Meet and network with security professionals
  • Weekend outings in NYC

Applicants should be:

  1. A US Citizen or Permanent Resident
  2. Enrolled full-time at a college or university
  3. A Junior or above in ECE, CS, or a related field
  4. In excellent academic standing, with a GPA of 3.2 or above
