My supervisor told me, 'You see things differently than we do. We can use more of that here.' I attribute that to my experience at NYUAD. I was taught to approach problems differently and to find solutions that are sustainable and efficient.

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.

The Career Development Center at NYU Abu Dhabi works with students to help improve interpersonal skills, find internship and job opportunities, and prepare for graduate school.
