Born out of Cornell University’s historic Faculty of Computing and Information Science and College of Engineering, Cornell Tech is the next iteration of the university’s 150 years of leadership in engineering and computer science. Our research excellence spans technical areas such as machine learning, human-centered computing, and cryptography as well as issue-focused studies of technology and society.

Cornell Tech’s top-ranked faculty members and researchers are active leaders in their fields and widely published, patented, and cited. Their significant contributions to technology regularly make headlines and receive the highest awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the MacArthur Foundation, and other leading entities.

Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech

The Jacobs Institute fosters radical experimentation at the intersection of research, education, and entrepreneurship. Research activity focuses on three hubs:

Urban Tech Hub

Developing and applying technological solutions to make cities more livable, sustainable, and resilient.

Health Tech Hub

Promoting technologies for healthier living; healthcare information systems; and medical monitoring and diagnosis.

Connective Media Hub

Examining the social impacts and full utility of ecosystems formed when communication, information, and media converge.
