The NYU Tandon School of Engineering (formerly the Polytechnic School of Engineering) is the school of engineering and applied science within New York University. Founded in 1854, we are the second oldest private engineering school in the United States, with an educational mission rooted in a 161-year tradition that rests on the three pillars of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship (I2E). Based in downtown Brooklyn, NYU Tandon is the anchor tenant of the MetroTech Center, the largest academic-industrial research park in the United States. Serving approximately 5,000 students, NYU Tandon awards Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral degrees in core engineering disciplines, the applied sciences, and a number of interdisciplinary programs. With 180 full time faculty and annual research expenditures upwards of $20M, NYU Tandon faculty and students engage in internationally-recognized scholarship and research around a wide variety of areas including biochemical research, data science, cybersecurity, wireless telecommunications, material science, and mechatronics.
Having joined the consortium in January, The VIP program is in start-up mode. There are four teams from three of NYU’s Schools planned to begin formally in Fall 2016. From NYU Tandon; Hyperloop and ReprintBot. From the College of Nursing; NYU-X (emerging technologies for innovation in health care). From NYU Steinhardt; Experience Design for Music Education. As part of NYU, we are fully integrated into the nation’s largest private research university, educating nearly 60,000 students on our campuses in New York City, Abu Dhabi, Shanghai, and eleven other global sites. The school of engineering has a strong tradition of commitment to diversity. We have proudly educated generations of Americans who are first in their families to earn a college degree. Further, a Brookings Study Ranks NYU's Engineering School ‘Among the Best in Aiding Students' Financial Success’.
