Tandon Vision

Tandon Vision is an innovative way for NYU Tandon faculty and staff to interact with students using virtual and augmented reality.

Student using a Cardboard Virtual Reality Headset

By creating virtual and augmented reality apps the Tandon Vision team has an opportunity to infuse newly admitted students into the unique Tandon culture. Our apps give students a chance to envision their lives at Tandon students.
