Engineers solve problems, and there is no shortage of challenges right here in New York City.

Columbia Engineering puts the creative minds of every first-year student to the task of finding ways to solve or ameliorate these real-world problems. From designing and building a wheelchair swing for a playground to mentoring a Bronx high school's robotics team (click here or on photo above right to watch video), our students experience the satisfaction of helping others while learning the basics of design, collaboration, communication, problem solving and project management.

In our community-based programs, from a workforce development training program in informational technology for community residents to sponsoring the Harlem Middle School Robotics Competition, our students can learn well by doing good.
