Despite the time constraints of 24-credit course loads and extracurricular obligations, many SEAS students still manage to set aside time for research.
Using accurate urban models to assess how autonomous robots can better understand their environment. Identifying the molecular signatures useful for cancer treatment. Using social media as a proxy for finding suitable Netflix suggestions. These are just some of the ongoing research projects that Columbia’s Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering is tackling in its first two years.
Seeley W. Mudd, which has been the home of the School of Engineering and Applied Science on Columbia’s campus since 1966, will be getting some major upgrades in the next few years.
Unlike most engineering schools, the School of Engineering and Applied Science offers components of a liberal arts education—something SEAS Dean Mary Boyce calls “critical to engineers and scientists of the 21st century.”
When the School of Engineering and Applied Science first opened its doors as the School of Mines, the idea of a class in which student and professor need never be in the same room at the same time would have seemed pure delusional fantasy. Today, 150 years later, it’s an increasingly commonplace reality.
