As an institution that traces its origins back to 1854, NYU Tandon School of Engineering is rooted in tradition and opportunity. Our school was, quite literally, the birthplace of the American Dream; it was our alum James Truslow Adams who coined that phrase in 1931. Just as it was then, Tandon is a place where ambitious students from all walks of life get the solid education they need to launch their careers.
Invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship suffuse everything here — from our course offerings to our student competitions to our labs and prototyping spaces. We carry our school’s great history forward with a shared goal: To generate ideas and build solutions for a healthier, safer, better-connected, and more sustainable world.
