Initiatives

A Strong Foundation

The Seidenberg School is a nationally prominent school in the foundation disciplines of Computer Science and Information Systems. As well as learning the fundamental theory their major and obtaining hands-on professional skill sets, our students, alongside our faculty, are involved in cutting edge research in both well-known and emerging fields in computing technology including:

 

Cybersecurity

 
Seidenberg is one of the first schools in the New York Metropolitan Area to be designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (IAE) by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security.
 
Our cybersecurity research is funded by government agencies, including the Department of Defense, the Army Research Office and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Recent funding from the Department of Defense has gone toward mobile forensic research and skimmer fraud.
 

Mobile App Development

Our mobile app development program was developed on the foundation of our successful ‘full stack’ Web development program and is now one of the most visible app development programs in the New York area. Housing the Seidenberg Mobile Dev Lab, the Seidenberg School provides ample opportunity to learn how to develop unique and useful mobile apps that fill market needs. 
 

Healthcare and Life Sciences IT

Telemedicine is a revolutionary new direction in health care that delivers medical expertise at a distance. Using exciting new technologies, patients can connect with medical specialists instantly via the web. This means that no matter where you’re located, when you or your loved ones face an emergency, you’ll be able to access the best care around – whether it’s in a different state or even a different country.

From putting people in need in touch with experts in their field to providing medical advice and service to populations with poor access to health care providers, telemedicine is a ground-breaking and quickly expanding industry.  

At Seidenberg, we work to address the technical, business, legal, policy, and strategic issues surrounding telehealth. By doing so, we can support the implementation of services, incorporating on-site/off-site personnel and the application of data mining and other emerging technologies.
 

Big Data

Big Data is a new term for an old concept. It describes the gathering and storage of massive amounts of data for subsequent analysis. Big Data is best described by the three Vs originally articulated by industry analyst Doug Laney: volume, velocity and variety. These three dimensions describe the large amount of data collected, the extraordinary speed at which the data streams in, and the various formats in which it appears. 
 
Due to these three Vs, there are many challenges to Big Data - organization, sharing, and privacy being just a few. The Seidenberg School is conducting research in an attempt to meet and overcome these challenges, making it possible for large data sets to be organized and utilized efficiently and effectively.
