Computer Engineering Bridge Program
A pathway for individuals without a STEM background to a graduate degree in computer engineering and a career in an in-demand field.
In our constantly evolving society, we expect our computers of all shapes and sizes to meet more complex needs every day. Computer engineers have a leading role in developing the models that drive this advancing technology, placing them at the forefront of innovation. Experts in computer engineering have the opportunity to focus on a broad range of disciplines, including information technology, computer design and engineering, operating systems and networks, computer architecture, and software applications, among others.
Pathway to a Master’s in Computer Engineering
The Computer Engineering Bridge Program is your pathway to pursuing a Computer Engineering Master's Degree at NYU Tandon and a career in this dynamic professional field. The M.S. in Computer Engineering at NYU Tandon is an on-campus, two-year, 30-credit program. Students gain practical experience and a theoretical understanding of telecommunications, networks, and microelectronics industries. By teaching the principles underlying the design and integration of computer components and systems, we ensure students have a base from which to launch critical improvements in the field.
Bridge Program Details
Students must have a four-year bachelor's degree to apply to the Bridge program. Basic proficiency in college algebra and some exposure to programming is recommended for success in the course. Learning a simple programming language like Python prior to starting will help you become familiar with the notion of programming.
Certificates are issued to individuals who receive a grade of C or better. Students who receive a B+ or higher will receive a certificate with Distinction and will be eligible for admittance and receive a GRE waiver for any of the qualifying NYU Tandon master’s degrees, including Computer Engineering. Applicants will need to meet all other Graduate School of Engineering admission requirements.
