About NYU Tandon School of Engineering
As an institution that traces its origins back to 1854, NYU Tandon School of Engineering is rooted in tradition and opportunity. Our school was, quite literally, the birthplace of the American Dream; it was our alum James Truslow Adams who coined that phrase in 1931. Just as it was then, Tandon is a place where ambitious students from all walks of life get the solid education they need to launch their careers.
Invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship suffuse everything here — from our course offerings to our student competitions to our labs and prototyping spaces. We carry our school’s great history forward with a shared goal: To generate ideas and build solutions for a healthier, safer, better-connected, and more sustainable world.
At Tandon, we do engineering for the ages.
