Undergraduate Academics

Our technology-focused majors and programs are rooted in fundamentals and driven by our faculty’s passion to encourage students to achieve their best as they tackle new, complex challenges. 


Student in the Library

Many of our faculty members are industry leaders who provide an inside, real-world perspective that helps our students easily transition from the halls of academia to the labs, studios, and boardrooms where they’ll begin their careers.

Choosing a Major or Program

While you may enter the NYU School of Engineering with a major in mind, you are not required to choose a major before beginning your studies. You will have up to 3 semesters to determine your major, and you can use that time to explore departments more deeply and discuss your goals and ambitions with academic advisors. Until you decide, you will take the core course requirements that every student completes before graduating. 

Over 15 minors are offered at NYU Tandon and dozens more are available through other NYU Schools.

As you consider different majors and minors, keep in mind that an NYU degree will provide you with a host of career options. In today’s marketplace, the skills you gain at the NYU School of Engineering will be as valuable in marketing, finance, and government as they will be in engineering or technology.

Accelerated Programs

If you're already thinking beyond your undergraduate degree, you may want to learn about our BS/MS Program which leads to the simultaneous award of a bachelor's and a master's degree in less time than it typically takes to complete both separately. 

For highly qualified and motivated students who are technically oriented, the Five-year Dual Degree program offers the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree from the College of Arts and Science and a Bachelor of Science degree from the School of Engineering concurrently.
