Engineering & Science
In labs, in partnerships with New York City, and in global fieldwork — research at Columbia is about solving huge problems like climate change and hunger, as well as solving huge mysteries like the origin of the universe. It’s about impacting the world with new technologies, new social media, new ways of looking at the human body, new animation techniques. Getting involved in research here is no Ivory Tower exercise. It’s faculty and students actively working wonders.
