Sloan Lecture Series

NYU Tandon School of Engineering / Sloan Foundation Cyber Security Lectures

With the ever-increasing scale of interconnected information systems, concerns about cyber security dangers and threats increase daily. NYU Tandon School of Engineering (formerly known as NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering) Cyber Security Lecture Series provides an arena for high-level discussion among world-class scholars and practitioners. Sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, lectures and panel discussions are designed to raise the visibility of risks and issues, including personal privacy. Internationally renowned experts join together to stimulate collaborative thinking, especially among New York's regional businesses, government agencies, nonprofits, academic institutions, media, and the public. Practical and timely, the series also focuses on possible strategies that address the impact of growing risks.

Cyber Security Laboratory

NYU School of Engineering’s cyber security laboratory is a remote virtual environment available to students and faculty as the backbone of many courses in the program.

Cyber Security Laboratory

Fortune 500 companies looking to move the talent needle forward are now able to send employees through online certificate courses in emerging computing technologies, data science, power technologies, data center and cloud technologies, human capital engineering and analytics, and human resource information systems. Each certificate can be completed in one year in a trimester schedule. Students who enter the corporate series earn nine credits that may be applied to a qualifying master’s degree.

NYU Center for Cyber Security

NYU CCS is an interdisciplinary research center that will train the next generation of cyber security professionals to integrate technical, legal, and financial perspectives to develop secure, reliable, and practical solutions to complex security problems. In an integrated world, problems of technology and security are inherently interdisciplinary. Computer scientists and engineers must be able to put technical innovations in their commercial and strategic context, and to think about cyber security as part of a holistic approach to risk management. At the same time, lawyers and business strategists must understand the technological developments that drive both innovation and risk. The Center is the focal point at NYU for the development of the next generation of cyber security leaders.

2014 certification

NYU Tandon School of Engineering (formerly known as NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering) is ranked as one of the top Online Graduate Engineering Programs by U.S. News & World Report for the fifth consecutive year.

NYU Engineering Wins Online Learning Consortium 2015 "Ralph E. Gomory Award for Quality Online Education"

NYU Tandon School of Engineering wins the prestigious 2015 "Ralph E. Gomory Award for Quality Online Education" for its outstanding success in furthering online learning programs in engineering, especially by using quantitative metrics to improve quality in their online pedagogy, from the Online Learning Consortium (OLC), the country’s most prominent association of academic institutions and practitioners championing online higher education.

Online Learning Consortium Names NYU Engineering’s Cyber Security Virtual Master’s the Nation’s “Outstanding Online Program”

The Online Learning Consortium (OLC), the leading organization in online education, has recognized NYU Tandon School of Engineering’s Cyber Security virtual Master’s degree as the nation’s “Outstanding Online Program.” More than half of all students in the school’s Master’s in Cyber Security are presently enrolled in its online program. Robert Ubell, who heads NYU Tandon School of Engineering’s online program, has received the A. Frank Mayadas Leadership Award in Online Education, OLC’s highest honor for individual achievement in online learning.

About Us

About NYU Tandon School of Engineering

The NYU Tandon School of Engineering (formerly known as NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering) dates to 1854, when the NYU School of Civil Engineering and Architecture as well as the Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute (widely known as Brooklyn Poly) were founded. Their successor institutions merged in January 2014 to create a comprehensive school of education and research in engineering and applied sciences, rooted in a tradition of invention, innovation and entrepreneurship. In addition to programs at its main campus in downtown Brooklyn, it is closely connected to engineering programs in NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai, and it operates business incubators in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn.
