Admissions Requirements

Thank you for your interest in a graduate program at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. 

On this page:

General Requirements

To be eligible for consideration to any Tandon MS or Ph.D. program, you must hold a Bachelor's Degree from an accredited institution, which includes a minimum of four years of full-time study. Bachelor of Engineering degrees (based on 180+ ECTS credits) may also be considered. Attention will be given to the programs accredited by ABET and programs accredited/approved by other various regional accrediting associations. Please be advised that admission to a program that is different from your undergraduate field of study may require the completion of prerequisite courses before you will be permitted to begin graduate-level coursework. Tandon School of Engineering reserves the right to investigate or disqualify educational credentials on a case-by-case basis.

The application for admission must be completed online and submitted electronically once you have answered all required questions. You may access your online application and change your answers as many times as you like with your username and password from any computer with Internet access (until you submit it).

Once you have completed all sections of the application, validate and submit it. After submission, you will not be able to make changes to your application information. Make copies of all submitted documents for your personal file, as we are unable to return applications and supporting documents. If you wish to submit updated documentation, you must mail it to our document processing center. Documents received from the student via email will not be accepted to be processed.

  • Applicants may request an English language Test waiver by submitting an online form to the Office of Graduate Enrollment Management and Admissions for review. This form will be available on July 1, 2018 for Spring 2019 and Fall 2019. Please note that the eligibility to be granted a waiver is dependent upon if the applicant has obtained an undergraduate and/or graduate degree from an accredited US insitution or approved country at our discretion. Please keep in mind that you must first submit your application and official transcripts before a waiver request can be reviewed.
  • Admitted students should submit their deposit by the following dates: International admitted students - Tuesday, May 1, 2018, and Domestic admitted students - Friday, June 1, 2018.

  • As you may be aware, there have recently been some changes at the China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC). After reviewing the changes, the NYU Tandon School of Engineering is no longer requiring CDGDC verification of your transcript or diploma.

    You are still required to submit your final official transcript and your proof of degree from your university. Once we receive these documents, we will be able to remove your proof of degree hold. Failure to submit proof of degree by Monday, October 1, 2018 will prevent you from registering from Spring 2019 courses. 

  • Due to the volume of applications and related materials received, the Office of Graduate Admissions will only contact you if your application was successfully submitted and is deemed INCOMPLETE because of missing required materials. Otherwise, you will hear from us when a decision has been rendered.
