Rankings for Real Life

6 MetroTech Center front entrance

Engineering degrees have long been considered a conduit to interesting careers and solid earning potential. With its commitment to those underrepresented in the STEM fields, NYU Tandon has provided a pathway to the middle class and beyond for countless students.  

Now, the first ranking to incorporate the U.S. Department of Education's recently released nationwide data on median alumni salary and median alumni debt has been released, allowing prospective students to make a granular cost-benefit analysis before choosing a school and major.

Using data collected on more than five million graduates since 2015, the rankings are available at www.gradreports.com, and it will come as little surprise to anyone familiar with NYU Tandon that it makes a strong showing.

The school’s master’s degree program in civil engineering, for example, features as a top-10 pick, with the civil engineering bachelor’s program at number 11 on the undergraduate list. 

In addition to those, NYU’s wide-ranging graduate offerings in computer and information science fared exceptionally well, perched firmly near the top of the list at number three.


Those rankings are undeniably impressive, but they are far from the only lists on which NYU Tandon shines: CS Magazine, one of the most esteemed publications in the field, recently recognized the nation’s Best Cybersecurity Higher Education Programs, and the top five included the NYU Cyber Fellows initiative, which provides a 75% scholarship towards tuition for Tandon’s elite online Cybersecurity Master’s Degree, and the Master of Science in Cybersecurity Risk and Strategy program, offered jointly by NYU Tandon and the NYU School of Law.
