Mission, Vision, and Values
Our mission is to be a world-class engineering school that puts students first and is home to lifelong learning. We will be the place that makes the American dream possible; the home of engaged critical thinkers and makers of the future.
Our culture of diversity, inclusion, equality, and respect will make us the place where every smart young engineer wants to be. Our students and faculty will tackle strategic societal challenges using a global vision and network, ensuring our cutting-edge innovations are thoughtfully and successfully introduced into society. We will be the engine of innovation for Brooklyn and New York City. We believe in changing the world through our passion for scientific truth, facts, and educational excellence within a nurturing and connected community accessible to all.
We are engineering healthy and sustainable, creative and smart, connected and secure global urban communities.
Today, 1 in 2 people live in an urban community; in 2050, 7 out of 10 will. This is why — with the entirety of New York City as a living urban lab — we are working to make them:
Healthy and Sustainable
Creative and Smart
Connected and Secure
Our research focuses on vital fields and the intersections between them:
We reach across boundaries in the name of solving problems
We are engineering for equality
You can be born anywhere and made in Brooklyn
In the fastest-growing technology hub in the country, engaged critical thinkers and makers of the future are making amazing things happen fueled by a shared quality that we call #NYUTandonMade: a combination of creativity, determination, street smarts, entrepreneurship, and heart.
