- M.Eng in Computer Science
The CS M.Eng curriculum is organized to support flexible and dynamic interdisciplinary instruction instead of traditional academic departments. World-class academics, each of whom has entrepreneurial experience, teach courses handcrafted to fit the unique mission of Cornell Tech and build deep expertise in software systems.
The real-world project is a team-based project in cooperation with a company or organization where the motive of the project is a technical opportunity or challenge either drawn from or relevant to the business of the cooperating organization, and where a practitioner from that organization contributes real-world feedback and mentorship to the student effort.
Every Friday, students participate in an interdisciplinary practicum. These practicums are led by diverse guest practitioners that include entrepreneurs, designers, storytellers, artists, lawyers and more, giving students broad, first-hand understanding and experience to be successful in the business world.

Technology is changing the way we do business. That’s why Cornell Tech and the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management have re-engineered the MBA to better align with — and make the most of — today’s business realities. You’ll find this new program is a major shift in the paradigm of graduate business education.
The Johnson MBA program at Cornell Tech takes full advantage of the university's top-ranked programs in business, computing, and engineering. And it does so in a community that inspires entrepreneurship, in a physical space that promotes open collaboration, and within a campus culture that embraces creativity and passion for bringing transformational ideas to life.

- M.S. in Information Systems (Connective Media)
The information revolution has transformed society in a way that would have been unimaginable twenty years ago. The primary human desire to consume and share information in real time is the wellspring of innovative, need-driven information technologies. At home, on the road, in the office, in school, at play or in a variety of social scenarios, participants will invariably and increasingly use digital information technologies to get things done.
The Master of Science (M.S.) in Information Systems with specialization in Connective Media, offered by theat Cornell Tech, meets the growing demand for trained technologists and entrepreneurs in media-related industries: it provides the talent both to drive the digital-age transformation of information (e.g., news, publishing, advertising, and entertainment) industries and to lead the design and development of the next generation of social media applications.
In this innovative two-year program, students will earn a degree from both Cornell University and the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. The M.S. in Information Systems with specialization in Connective Media degree combines technical, social science and media industry expertise in an interdisciplinary two-year program that broadly covers topics such as data analytics, human-centered design, mobile technologies, social networks, and user experience. These fundamental skills are brought to bear on practical problems through immersive semester-long projects with some of the most prominent New York City digital and social media companies and across many related industries. Building on the technological excellence of both Cornell and the Technion, the program will educate a new generation of talent to develop technologies, applications and experiences that take advantage of the constant access to, and the sharing of, online information in the digital and mobile worlds.
The program offers an excellent foundation in the information sciences: methods for extracting, using and sharing vital information from the ever expanding masses of data at structured online repositories (e.g., databases of people), semi-structured user-generated content of social media sites (e.g., wikis, blogs, user forums and game worlds), unstructured sources (e.g., social networks,) and media streams of varied content: text, audio, images, and video.
Beyond the technological coursework, the program also provides formal and hands-on training in entrepreneurship and involves a significant hands-on R&D project in a real-world environment. This is achieved through collaboration with relevant tech companies in New York City – the media capital of the world.
With their accrued formal and informal business, industrial and entrepreneurial experience, graduates of this program will be especially desirable employees for the extensive hi-tech or media-related industries. It is also anticipated that some graduates will continue the project work started during their studies, either as spinoffs of the affiliated companies or as independent startups.
- Two-year interdisciplinary technological degree focusing on digital media in the connected and mobile world.
- Significant industrial engagement and project work
- Interleaved business and entrepreneurial training – formal and hands-on
