Research is how we make the world a better place. At New York Institute of Technology, faculty and students draw on interdisciplinary and entrepreneurial approaches to tackle the world’s biggest challenges in technology, medicine, design, management, health care, and so much more. From undergraduate research opportunities in engineering and life sciences, to advanced research for our medical students, researchers at NYIT fight the war on cybercrime, find new energy alternatives, improve therapies for patients battling Parkinson’s, Ehlers Danlos, heart and kidney disease, and develop designs for a safer, more sustainable future.
