Thirty-seven Princeton University students spent the summer working at young businesses in New York City this summer at the Keller Center's summer internship program in New York, the Princeton Start-Up Immersion Program. They fanned across the city, working at 19 startups, and came together for meals and panel discussions. In this video, they discuss what they did this summer, and how it will matter for their careers.
Areas of Impact
Entrepreneurship at Princeton, far more than starting profit-making companies, offers a powerful approach to education, service, leadership, and impact. The Keller Center offers a wide range of courses and programs in entrepreneurship and design thinking, while the Princeton Entrepreneurship Council provides coordination across the campus.
Associated Departments and Centers
Princeton has been at the forefront of computing since Alan Turing, Alonzo Church, and John von Neumann were among its residents. The department, now in a period of major growth, has strong groups in artificial intelligence and machine learning, theory, programming languages, graphics and vision, systems and networking, computer architecture, computational biology and neuroscience, security, privacy, and information technology policy.
The Keller Center seeks to prepare all students – both engineers and non-engineers – to be leaders in an increasingly complex, technology-driven society. The center is creating new courses and strengthening existing ones that go beyond purely technical subjects to provide students a broader understanding of the global economic, environmental and cultural forces that shape and are shaped by technology. At the same time, the center is improving students' technical education by exposing them to real engineering projects throughout their four years, through internships, entrepreneurial opportunities, and multidisciplinary courses.
