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 Cybersecurity, Digital Media, Business Technology, Sustainable Urban Environments, and Biomolecular Science. All of its majors provide practical experience along with theory.

After freshman year, students may
apply to the BS/MS program, where undergraduates have the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree in four years.

Tandon students take advantage of all NYU resources. They take electives
and 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 schol
ars 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 networking for professional careers.

The Tandon School of Engineering boasts cutting-edge research facilities and technological resources, including modern laboratories, studios, galleries, and smart classrooms. Students share ideas in green space and “PolyPods”—nontraditional learning spaces encouraging impromptu collaborations and discoveries—and learn to protect against hacking at our weekly hacknights. A new Maker Space brings 3D printing and scanning technology to the school. The campus provides two high-tech residence halls and guarantees 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 generating 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.
