Columbia University to Create Data Sciences Institute in NYC

Columbia University will start an Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering in New York City.

The program, which will be housed at the school’s existing campuses in Morningside Heights and Washington Heights, is expected to employ 75 new faculty members over the next 15 years, according to a news release from the city announcing the plan. The agreement includes the creation of 44,000 square feet of applied-science and engineering space by 2016.
