Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems: Empowering Communities Through Technology

Pace’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems prepares men and women for success in the dynamic information age. Core to its mission is teaching students to develop technologies that empower people. Through Seidenberg’s service-learning courses, more than 700 students each year use technology to help K-12 students, people with disabilities, the elderly, small business owners, and non-profit organizations.

Seidenberg also strengthens the bonds between the University and members of the New York City technology community through a number of educational and social events, including: hosting the annual Gotham Ruby Conference (GoRuCo); the annual Leadership and Service in Technology Awards; and a number of Tech Talks open to the community. In addition, Seidenberg works closely with community partners to provide key services and research including:

  • Providing training sessions in computer forensics for the New York City Police Department
  • Partnering with the Bank of New York Mellon to provide online graduate education in software development and security
  • Serving as the Information Technology arm of New York Law School located nearby in Lower Manhattan
  • Analyzing NYC tech startups for the New York City Economic Development Corporation and creating a centralized web information portal for tech entrepreneurs
  • Playing an active role with government and industry organizations including The New York City Department of Education, The Union Square Alliance, DUMBO NYC, and the Lower Manhattan Marketing Association through the Seidenberg Creative Lab
  • Working with Dyson College to develop the Pace/SkillPROOF IT Index, which provides a quarterly snapshot of the IT job market in New York City and Westchester County

Recently, Seidenberg opened the doors to its new CyberSecurity Insitute. Deemed a National Center of Academic Excellence for Information Assurance Education by the National Science Foundation—the first school with this designation in the New York Metropolitan Area—Seidenberg partners with the NYPD, Department of Defense, FBI, and others to develop secure information systems and protect victims of cybercrimes. n
