Explore NYU Tandon
NYU Tandon is rooted in a vibrant tradition of entrepreneurship, intellectual curiosity, and innovative solutions to humanity’s most pressing global challenges.
Research at Tandon focuses on vital intersections between communications/IT, cybersecurity, and data science/AI/robotics systems and tools and critical areas of society that they influence, including emerging media, health, sustainability, and urban living.
The NYU Tandon School of Engineering dates to 1854, the founding date for both the New York University School of Civil Engineering and Architecture and the Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute. 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. A January 2014 merger created a comprehensive school of education and research in engineering and applied sciences as part of a global university, with close connections to engineering programs at NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai. We believe diversity is integral to excellence, and are creating a vibrant, inclusive, and equitable environment for all of our students, faculty and staff
The NYU Tandon Made mindset — tackling the challenges and opportunities ahead of us with equal parts determination, innovation, street smarts, and a healthy measure of heart — suffuses everything here, from our courses to our student competitions to our labs and prototyping spaces.
