Columbia Engineering Summer 2020
Students at Columbia Engineering learn to think creatively, analytically, and globally about some of the greatest challenges facing humanity, and gain a foundational degree that prepares them for the most in-demand careers of today and for fields not yet imagined.
We believe that engineers are creative problem solvers uniquely suited to address a variety of social needs, from assuring clean air and water to discovering more effective remedies for disease, and developing and securing systems that connect people with greater efficiency.
Our courses offer you an opportunity to learn java, test your knowledge of natural language processing or data analytics. Columbia Engineering offers several areas of study for undergraduate and graduate students for distance learners and those seeking non-degree or certificate programs.
We hope you’ll join us, register now!

ENGI E4900 Summer Masters Research or ENGI E3900 Summer Undergraduate Research
Enrollment in this course acknowledges the student’s participation in research with a Columbia Engineering faculty member.
Working with a faculty member in a team of 3-5 graduate or undergraduate students, students will have the opportunity to work on a small research project, typically for 6 weeks. Students can enroll for ENGI E3900/4900 for zero credit, zero fees; students who wish to earn academic credit can enroll in the faculty member’s independent research course or Fieldwork. The specific requirements for the project are defined by the faculty members. Research groups meet weekly with their faculty member. Students are also encouraged to submit bi-weekly progress reports to the faculty member. Upon completion of the research project (end of July/beginning of August), each research team will participate in a research symposium to present their research and deliverables.
ENGI E4700 Summer Industry Project
Enrollment in this course acknowledges the student’s participation in an industry project.
Working with a mentor (alum, adjunct faculty, or industry partner) in a relevant industry, students will work with a team of 3-5 students on an identified project. The career placement officer can assist in administering the advertisement, selection and recruitment processes. Students can enroll in ENGI E4700 for zero credit, zero fees; students who wish to earn academic credit can enroll in Fieldwork. The specific requirements for the project is defined by the mentor.
