Applied Urban Science and Informatics Bridge Program
A program designed for students lacking a background in computer science giving you a gateway to a graduate-level degree in applied urban science and informatics.
We designed this online program to prepare you for entrance into the Applied Urban Science and Informatics Master's Degree program at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. Students with a humanities, arts or social science undergraduate degree will find this program particularly beneficial as you may have little to no computer science training.
I highly recommend this course to the dedicated individual seeking a deeper level of understanding for what they don't know (yet) in a short frame of time.

Students must have a four year Bachelor's degree in any discipline. To successfully complete this Bridge course with a good grade, proficiency in college algebra, and some exposure to programming is desirable. Learning a simple programming language prior to the start of the course will help you get familiar with the notion of programming, and free online resources such as Coursera, YouTube, can help you prepare.
If you complete this intensive Bridge course with a grade of B+ or better, you are eligible to be admitted to one of the select NYU Tandon master's programs. To be considered, you will need to meet all other Graduate School of Engineering admission requirements. The Bridge program is a non-credit course.
