Columbia University, a private Ivy League research university, was founded in 1754 as King's College by royal charter of King George II of England. Located in Manhattan and occupying 32 acres of land, the university is the oldest institution of higher learning in the state of New York and the fifth oldest in the United States.
The university is organized into twenty schools, including Columbia College, the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the School of General Studies. The university also has global research outposts in Amman, Beijing, Istanbul, Paris, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Asunción and Nairobi.
Columbia University is considered one of the world's most important centers of research, as well as a distinguished learning environment for undergraduates and graduate students in a wide range of professional fields. Columbia attracts a diverse and international faculty and student body, to support research and education on global issues, and to create academic relationships with many countries and regions.
Our work with Columbia University ranges from developing instruments to map the sea floor to seeding new data science collaborations.
