The New York University Tandon School of Engineering combines city life, a diverse student body, and outstanding technology-focused degree programs. The School enrolls 2,286 undergraduates from across the US and 60 countries around the world. The NYU Tandon School of Engineering builds upon a legacy that began in 1854 in Brooklyn, New York. Among Tandon’s faculty and graduates are Nobel Laureates, notable inventors, NASA astronauts, world-class scientists, and successful entrepreneurs.

The Tandon School of Engineering’s academic model is based on a paradigm of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship. The academic program is designed to transform ideas into action. In addition to traditional engineering disciplines, Tandon offers cutting-edge programs for future leaders in Biomolecular Science, Business Technology, Cybersecurity, Digital Media, and Sustainable Urban Environments. All of the School’s majors provide practical experience along with theory. After freshman year, students may apply to the BS/MS dual-degree program, where undergraduates can earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree in four years. 

Tandon students can take advantage of all of NYU’s resources. They take electives and declare minors across NYU’s other undergraduate programs, collaborate with professors in cross-institutional research, participate in study abroad programs, and pursue internships through the Wasserman Center for Career Development. With professors who are both scholars and practitioners, Tandon offers a rigorous, challenging education. Undergraduates enjoy a 10:1 student-faculty ratio, receiving individual attention and mentorship that fosters academic growth and provides networking opportunities for professional careers.

The Tandon School of Engineering boasts cutting-edge research facilities and technological resources including modern laboratories, studios, galleries, smart classrooms, and the NYU Tandon MakerSpace, which brings 3D printing and scanning technology to the School. The campus has two high-tech residence halls, and we guarantee housing for all four years. The surrounding area, known as the “Brooklyn Tech Triangle,” is America’s most up-and-coming innovation center, home to over 500 creative and tech companies that generate more than 10,000 jobs. Tandon operates four technology business incubators, providing resources to launch successful start-ups where more than 300 students intern. Our faculty, students, and alumni also lead tech ventures among other aspiring companies.
