Spring Into NYU Tandon


NYU Tandon


Welcome to Tandon

Congratulations on your admission to the NYU Tandon School of Engineering! We are very excited to have you, the newest member of the Class of 2022, join our community of students and scholars in Spring 2019!

Spring admission will allow you to graduate in May 2022, the same graduation date as students who enter in Fall 2018. A dedicated team of academic advisors are available to support you throughout your time at Tandon, helping to answer questions you might have about course selection, graduation requirements, academic options, leadership and service opportunities, and more. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at springintotandon@nyu.edu.


Tech in Service to Society

Tandon maintains a strong commitment to preparing STEM professionals who will be able to actively participate in, and be of service to, our local communities and global society. Informed by the principles of invention, innovation and entrepreneurship, students understand, through their academic and co-curricular experiences, that a degree in STEM is more than a demonstrated mastery of math and science—it’s the recognition of and responsiveness to societal needs, the enhancement of existing tech solutions and the creation of markets for new ones to thrive.

Evidence of our guiding philosophies can be found in our curriculum as early as the first semester of enrollment. As a Tandon student, you'll complete your first-year requirements, in the spring semester and summer terms, based on your major’s prescribed course of study:

                  Personalized Attention, Support, and Encouragement

                  We recognize how important it is for students to feel supported, academically and otherwise, throughout their academic career. This is particularly important here, at the School of Engineering, as our curriculum is quite rigorous. For these reasons, the following services will be a part of your experience as a spring admit:

                  • Personalized advisor check-in meetings
                  • Opt-in tutoring sessions
                  • Online study skills series

                  We believe that these services, along with the other forms of support available at Tandon, will provide you with the resources to ascend to the top of your engineering game and stay there!


                  Getting Started @ Tandon

                  New Student Experience
                  Your first-year advisor will serve as your primary guide throughout your acclimation to Tandon, creating a space for you to articulate your academic and professional goals, while connecting you to the various support services in the community. Community building activities, designed to help you form meaningful connections with your peers, will be provided throughout your first year. Below is a quick snapshot of some of the shared moments you will navigate, individually and with your peers, during your transition to Tandon:

                  • Registration. Registration for the Spring 2019 semester opens for new students in November. You will be contacted about the process for selecting classes in mid-October. You should also review the Tandon Academic Bulletin, which will help you prepare for registration and understand program requirements. Completion of any required placement exams, as well as the submission of advanced standing credits, will also occur during this period.
                     
                  • Tandon Orientation. Orientation for Tandon is scheduled to start on Wednesday, January 23, 2019.

Throughout orientation, you will enjoy many events and programs, academic sessions and workshops, and activities designed to help you acclimate to Tandon and New York City. You will receive a detailed schedule for orientation in December 2018.
