Research Expo is an annual public event that features exhibits that illustrate the scope of engineering and the applied sciences — and their potential for improving the world. This year’s Exhibit will celebrate the incredible academic contributions of our community and the ways in which they connect to Tandon’s seven areas of research excellence. The most exciting work being done in labs and prototyping facilities comes alive for spectators of all ages!

Stop by the Tandon Research Excellence Exhibit to view and experience incredible projects, and also enjoy free Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, popcorn, and Tandon t-shirt giveaways!

The Exhibit is free and open to the public. In the event of inclement weather, the Exhibit will be moved inside the Brooklyn Athletic Facility Gym. Due to NYU's current COVID-19 guidelines regarding indoor visitors, if the Exhibit is moved indoors, it will only be open to the NYU community.
