The engineering challenges of the 21st century are varied, complex, and cross-disciplinary. Ranging from the nano-scale to mega-projects, they are characterized by sustainability concerns, environmental and energy constraints, global sourcing, and humanitarian goals. In the face of global competition, dwindling natural resources, and the complexity of societal needs, the leaders of technological enterprises will be those who can innovate, are inventive and entrepreneurial, and understand how technology is integrated within society.

The engineering programs at NYU Abu Dhabi are accredited by the Accrediation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) and the Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA). The programs provide a sound preparation for careers in research, academia, industry, or government; Graduates receive a Bachelor of Science degree.

Design and Innovation — A Unique Program

Engineering at NYUAD is designed to create technological leaders with a global perspective, a broad education, and the capacity to think creatively. A distinctive element of our undergraduate programs lie in the integration of design and innovation in every year of the curriculum: students enjoy a learning environment conducive to creativity, which is at the heart of tomorrow’s technological innovations and enterprises.

Engineers for Social Impact

Engineers for Social Impact supports and complements the mission and goals of the Engineering Division at NYUAD through a co-curricular program that emphasizes experiential learning via field work.

Our Global PhD Program

The Global PhD Program in Engineering at NYUAD allows students to pursue doctorate degrees in Engineering and Computer Science in Abu Dhabi. Our focus areas are Bioengineering, Cyber Security, Environmental Sustainability, Robotics, Urban Systems, and in the future Resilient Systems.

Global PhD students are enrolled in NYU Tandon School of Engineering doctorate programs. Advised by an NYUAD faculty member, PhD students spend one year doing course work in New York and conduct their research in labs at NYUAD. Degrees are granted in the following disciplines below:

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Cyber Secruity
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Robotics
  • Urban Systems

Together with NYU New York and NYU Shanghai, NYU Abu Dhabi forms the backbone of the global network university, creating a unique and unprecedented capacity for faculty and students to access all the resources of a research university system across five continents. We produce high quality research, scholarship, and creative activity that responds in powerful and multidisciplinary ways to vital global and local challenges.

Early Admission to Master's Degree Programs at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering

Undergraduate engineering students with strong academic records may apply for early admission to master's degree graduate programs at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. While the NYU Tandon School of Engineering offers a wide range of graduate engineering programs, the allowable graduate programs for the early admission track will depend on the student’s engineering major at NYUAD. Students apply for early admission at the end of the fall semester of their junior year. Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores, which are required for regular admission, are waived for NYUAD early admission applicants; however, GRE scores are required for NYU Tandon School of Engineering scholarship evaluations.

Masters of Science (MS) degrees at NYU Tandon School of Engineering typically require 30 credits for completion. To receive the MS degree, students must satisfy all of the requirements of both the bachelor and master's degrees, and there is no double-counting of courses. Students who spend the spring semester of their junior year at NYU Tandon School of Engineering may enroll in graduate courses; if these courses are not counted toward the BS, they may be counted toward the MS in Engineering.
