About the NYU Vertically Integrated Projects Program:Vertically Integrated Projects are one-credit hour courses that offer students the opportunity to work on faculty research and innovation projects for curricular credit. VIP teams are also made up of 5-40 students of all undergraduate academic ranks and organized into a professional management structure. Students enroll in the one to three credits for at least three semesters and up to six. The long term engagement on the project allows students to grow into leader and mentor roles and ideally create a sustainable cycle of students, as 3rd and 4th year students train new 1st and 2nd year students. This experiential learning opportunity enables students to build a portfolio of projects that will help them to secure jobs. Faculty and graduate students benefit from student work and a broader impact of their research and education efforts, while students gain additional project experience, leadership opportunities, and teamwork skills.
