Pre-Engineering Option

Educating a New Generation of Engineers

An Exciting Pre-Engineering Option in Cooperation with NYU-Poly

Lander College for Women (LCW) is pleased to introduce a pre-engineering option for students. LCW students interested in pursuing careers in any of the engineering fields including electrical, environmental, chemical, civil, mechanical, computer, and biomedical engineering can enroll in pre-engineering option courses at NYU-Polytechnic School of Engineering (NYU-Poly). Enrollment in undergraduate engineering and engineering-related courses at NYU will enable students to take prerequisite engineering courses to allow them to apply to graduate programs in engineering.

Key Features of the Pre-Engineering Initiative

  • ​Students pursue a baccalaureate degree at Touro in an approved major
  • Students take engineering courses at NYU-Poly while they pursue a Bachelor's Degree at LCW
  • LCW students benefit from an NYU-Poly pre-engineering option advisor
  • NYU-Poly facilities and equipment are available to LCW students en​rolled in NYU-Poly courses
  • LCW students, in consultation with an advisor at LCW, are not limited in the number of pre-engineering credits that may be taken at NYU-Poly

Qualifications for Admittance

  • ​Students must take a minimum of 12 credits at LCW while taking courses at NYU-Poly
  • Minimum Cumulative GPA of 3.0
  • Minimum GPA of 3.0 in all math and science courses
  • Satisfaction of all prerequisite courses for any course a student would like to take at NYU-Poly
  • Recommendation letter to NYU-Poly from dean or assistant dean of LCW
