New York City at sunset

NYU CUSP is pleased to announce its 2021 call for Capstone Projects, open to city agencies, private sector companies, and academic organizations interested in co-supervising an applied urban analytics project with CUSP graduate students!

This year, we are seeking projects for two separate Capstone sessions: February to July and June to December.

The 6-month Capstone Program is the experiential learning focus of our Master of Science in Applied Urban Science and Informatics program, teaching CUSP students to utilize urban data science techniques within the constraints of political, social, and financial considerations, as well as address issues of data privacy, validity, and transparency.

We invite you to learn more about the Capstone Program by visiting our website here. You can submit a project proposal on behalf of your organization by filling out this form no later than November 15, 2020.

You can also learn about previous Capstone projects on our website here.

If you have any questions about the 2021 Capstone Program, please email Victoria Alsina at
