Our faculty and students are part of the high-tech start-up culture in New York City and in downtown Brooklyn, and we support three “future lab” business incubators that connect our students and faculty to today’s innovation economy. We are deeply committed to teaching and learning, and with NYU's unrivaled global network of campuses, we promote a truly global engineering education.
