The CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with the NYU Tandon Bridge, to notify its students about the School’s MS in Data Science program. Through this partnership, the NYU Tandon School of Engineering will make CUNY SPS’s highly ranked online data science graduate program one of the featured options presented to the NYU Tandon Bridge students, offering them the opportunity to apply to our low-cost, online STEM master’s program.

“Our agreement with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering will raise awareness among its Bridge graduates that the CUNY School of Professional Studies offers a highly rated rigorous technical and quantitative graduate degree in data science,” said Arthur O’Connor, the academic director of the MS in Data Science and BS in Information Systems degree programs at CUNY SPS. He continued, “By featuring our MS in Data Science degree program as another alternative to more expensive graduate degree programs, NYU Tandon is helping students access a highly affordable, online option to attaining the knowledge and skills that remain in such high demand in the job marketplace.”

The NYU Tandon Bridge is a groundbreaking intensive online program that quickly and inexpensively prepares college graduates without computer science backgrounds to enter master’s degree programs in high-demand fields of cybersecurity, data science, and computer science. Students admitted into this rigorous Bridge program attend three preparatory online courses, offered in either a 17-week or 24-week track, where they learn the fundamentals of computer science and gain technical skills to help them succeed in graduate school and beyond.

Under this arrangement, the NYU Tandon website will highlight the CUNY SPS MS in Data Science as one of the programs to which graduates of the STEM prep course can apply. Currently, students who graduate May 1stfrom the 17-week version of the course can submit their application to the CUNY SPS Data Science program for the Fall 2020 semester.
