Frequently, people entering master's programs must first complete years' worth of courses in fundamentals to pursue the topic they ultimately want to study. The Tandon School of Engineering at New York University is trying a new tack to woo non-STEM students into STEM degree programs. The “Bridge Program to NYU Tandon” has been developed for people with non-engineering backgrounds but with some college-level math to get the basics they need to jump into graduate-level study in bioinformatics, computer engineering, computer science and cybersecurity.
