The 14 positions on Student Council are filled via an anonymous online voting process open to all credit earning undergraduate students at the end of the Spring Semester for the upcoming Academic year. If all of the positions are not filled in the spring election process, students may apply and run for those remaining open positions during the first month of the Fall Semester.

The Graduate Student Council acts as the official graduate student governing body of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, whose purpose is to foster NYU and SoE community, provide an open forum for all of its constituents, and promote leadership. Volunteering for the Graduate Student Council is a great way of becoming an active member of the community, where you can work with your peers to build community at the School of Engineering. It provides you a platform where you can voice your opinions and act on changes you want to see.
