The Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering (ARISE) program at New York University’s  Tandon School of Engineering is a 7 week long summer program from 9 am to 4 pm on a weekday schedule through the summer. 

This program provides opportunities for lab experience in some of NYU’s research facilities and is geared towards New York City high school students possessing a strong interest in STEM careers. Students become experienced in carrying out college-level research, gaining skills in expository writing, scientific methods, professional development, and scientific ethics. The program culminates in a poster presentation of students’ research projects shown at a colloquium. 

This past summer, a number of Harrisites participated in the ARISE program. Senior Annie Park, said that “seeing my mentor’s work and what he does as a professional really inspired me to do research myself.” Senior Daffny Cardoso added that “my mentor’s assistance was able to further my passion in engineering and fully see how different engineering fields come together for one purpose.” 

Daffny continued  “With my mentor’s assistance, I was able to further my passion in engineering and fully see how different engineering fields come together for one purpose. My mentor was able to introduce me to various math functions, ones which I had never been introduced to before. He also taught me more about the field of exoskeletons that [my]  project was based on.”  The ARISE program provides opportunities for the participants driven by their mentors, placing them in academically  challenging environments where they are surrounded by like-minded peers. 

The wide range of the research projects pursued by these  students attests to the variety of researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. Senior Sathaya Regunathan’s research project involved Virtual Reality  headsets and Unity Engine. Daffny’s research project was on the development of an upper arm exoskeleton robotic arm for warehouse workers. Annie’s research project was a data science-based project studying human behavior and utilized sports statistics and data to determine if surprise had any impact on people’s perceptions of sports teams.

The program is recommended for high schoolers who seek more experience and knowledge about scientific research. Annie recommends that prospective participants “put 100% effort into just preparing for the interviews and researching the program and you have a good chance of getting in.” Applications for the summer 2024 program open on December 8.
