Hostos Community College of CUNY has partnered with senior colleges in CUNY and the Goddard Institute of Space Studies in New York City to expand the educational horizon of our students enabling them to compete and win in global markets. The latter is possible through collaborative research initiatives that develop and improve critical thinking and creativity skills, hands-on, team oriented, and interdisciplinary learning via collaborative research projects. The goal of this summer research initiative is to introduce minority engineering students to research environment in a team setting and organized through webcam and email.
