Women at Tandon

We’re working to make HERstory history.

We live for the day people don’t talk about “women in STEM” — just accomplished scientists, technologists, creators, and engineers who also happen to be women. Until then, we aim to be a leader in building a supportive environment where we all work together to increase women’s representation, retention, and success through a wide range of programs, services and activities.

At NYU Tandon, the American Dream is not limited by gender.


From K-12 STEM programs to summer research opportunities, Tandon is ensuring that the next generation of engineers is the strongest it can be by providing young women with the tools for success. Our efforts are paying off — women make up 46% of the Class of 2023, roughly double the average for U.S. engineering schools.

See how we've been making progress towards closing the STEM gender gap:
