Veteran Support

NYU Tandon is committed to supporting veterans in the pursuit of their academic, professional, and personal goals.


VFL launch

In addition to the Veterans Benefits available through New York University, NYU Tandon offers unique programs designed to help veterans become entrepreneurs or to enter select science and engineering fields.


Veterans Entrepreneurship Training (VET)

The Veterans Entrepreneurship Training (VET) program is designed for veterans who want to transition into entrepreneurship after completing their service. The program is made possible by support from New York Assemblyman Joseph Lentol.

VET is open to veterans with early-stage companies or ideas for companies. Participants in the program will learn from academic experts and industry leaders through hands-on experiential learning, mentorship, and capstone projects. Through the program’s business and technology training, participants will be given the tools to turn aspirations into career opportunities and new ventures. Upon successful completion, graduates will earn a VET Certificate from the Future Labs at NYU Tandon.
