Doors Open with a NYUAD Degree 

Our alumni leave NYUAD with jobs and graduate schools lined up for them.


We need to think not only as engineers, but also adopt the mindsets of social scientists, economists, and end users all at once.

Apply for Early Admission to NYU Tandon

NYU Abu Dhabi 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.
