Invention, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship in Action

This is our mission statement in practice. It’s a collection of concrete examples of how the NYU Tandon School of Engineering mission (the driving force behind the curriculum decisions we make, the large-scale projects we undertake, the partnerships we forge) is more than just words. Explore how our student, faculty, and School activities make us who we are.

We educate, discover, and invent.

We engage students seeking education achievement and opportunity, faculty seeking excellence and relevance, and organizations seeking solutions and talent.

We creatively bring intellectual rigor, technological innovation, and a passion for science to the communities where we work and live and to the citizens of the world.

We innovatively extend the benefits of science, engineering, and management to critical real-world opportunities and challenges, especially those linked to urban systems, health and wellness, and the global information economy.
