$100 Million Gift Transforms Engineering School and the Online Learning Unit

Thanks to the generosity of Chandrika and Ranjan Tandon in support of engineering at NYU, NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering has been renamed in their honor. Their remarkable gift of $100 million will support faculty hiring and academic programs, enabling us to invest even more in our high-quality curriculum and innovative learning platforms—and achieve new levels of academic excellence in engineering.

In a move to align with the recent name change to NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the school’s
digital education unit will now be known as NYU Tandon Online.

Entering its second decade, NYU Tandon Online expects to grow from about 100 unique online courses today to more than 300 in the next 5 years, introducing 10 new online graduate degrees, as well as its first online undergraduate degree in computer science. Initially launched with a modest staff of merely 3 professionals, the unit now employs 26 education technologists, videographers, media specialists, and other experts anticipating the needs of next-generation digital learners engaged in active online learning.
