In 2015, New York University’s Engineering School was renamed the NYU Tandon School of Engineering in recognition of the generosity of its benefactors – Chandrika and Ranjan Tandon, entrepreneurs who donated $100 million to the school.
According to Peter Carr, chair of the master of science in financial engineering programme, the largesse “prompted changes – brand-new facilities, as well as a dedicated career placement director who came from the industry”.
The revamp could help explain a sharp rise in the number of applicants for this competitive postgraduate-level programme: since 2016, there has been a 25% increase in applications.
