About the Bridge Program

The NYU Tandon Bridge course was developed to build foundational skills in those without a technical background in order to prepare for applying to our select STEM graduate programs. Taught by faculty of the NYU Tandon Computer Science department, this 100% online course covers topics that include discrete math, data structures and algorithms, and principles of operating systems. All course instruction is conducted exclusively in English.

Available in a 21- or 28-week asynchronous format, the Bridge program is a non-credit immersive experience utilizing interactive online modules, live webinars, assignments, and exams. Students who successfully complete the program will earn a certificate of distinction or certificate of completion. All Bridge certificates will be considered toward your master’s degree application, and entitle you to a waiver of the master’s application fee and GRE requirements. Before enrolling, you should ensure that participation in this program will meet your objectives.
