Being thrown in the deep sea and being expected to not only survive but to deliver stellar results is an experience that my degree program gave me. This makes me confident to accomplish tasks that initially seem beyond me.

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.
