Global PhD Student Fellowship in Mechanical Engineering


In collaboration with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the Division of Engineering at New York University Abu Dhabi invites applications for the Global PhD Student Fellowship in Mechanical Engineering.

Global PhD students in Engineering are enrolled at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, and enjoy the same privileges and responsibilities as all NYU students.

Students undertake all coursework in New York. This enables each student to connect with the School of Engineering’s faculty, engage in formative study with an entering cohort of students, and take advantage of NYU’s world-class resources before transitioning to Abu Dhabi for the research phase of the degree. NYUAD does not offer any graduate classes in Abu Dhabi at this time.

Please note that Fellowship candidates in Engineering are required to hold a relevant master’s degree before enrolling in order to be considered (candidates without a master's degree can still be considered for admission to NYU PhD programs, but are not eligible for the Fellowship in Engineering until the equivalent of a master's has been earned.).


Key Features of the Fellowship

  • New York University degree upon graduation
  • Access to the extraordinary resources of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering
  • Graduate coursework in New York
  • Cutting-edge research opportunities in NYU Abu Dhabi’s labs
