The Polytechnic Institute of New York University (also known as Polytechnic Institute of NYU, NYU Polytechnic, or NYU-Poly) is the second oldest private institute of technology in the United States.[2] It was founded in 1854 in the Borough of Brooklyn in New York City, and has a distinguished history in electrical engineering, polymer chemistry, aerospace, and microwave engineering. It was also known for its outreach programs to encourage math and science education in New York elementary and high schools.

In addition to its main address at MetroTech Center in Downtown Brooklyn, the institute offers programs at other sites throughout the region, including Long Island, Westchester, and Manhattan, as well as several programs in Israel.

NYU Polytechnic was listed among the top 10 innovative I.T. schools by Computerworld.com, top four in the U.S. for student diversity by U.S. News & World Report and one of the best Northeastern colleges by the Princeton Review.[3] Its Carnegie Classification is Doctorate-Granting "Research University" (high research activity)[4].

NYU Polytechnic has been ranked, according to The 2010 US News, among the best Engineering Graduate Schools in the nation.[5]

Among its graduates and faculty are Nobel Prize and Wolf Prize laureates, notable inventors, world class scientists and successful entrepreneurs.

Polytechnic Institute of New York University is ranked #153 out of 262 research universities in the 2011 US News and World Report.[6]

Campuses

Polytechnic Institute of New York University is located on five different campuses and offers a wide range of educational resources for all phases of education. NYU-Poly includes the Brooklyn Campus, Long Island Campus, Westchester Campus, Manhattan Campus and Israel campus.

Rogers Hall

Brooklyn Campus

This campus is centrally located in Brooklyn and close to transportation routes. The campus, called MetroTech, is easily accessible from all parts of New York City and Long Island. They have state-of-the-art facilities, including a brand new library, and new faculties for their electrical engineering, computer science and computer engineering programs.
Wunsch Building, a former church
The Brooklyn campus offer programs primarily for undergraduates but also offers opportunities for graduate students, including those executive programs for students with related experience.[7]

MetroTech Center: Polytechnic Institute of New York University played a leadership role in bringing about MetroTech Center, one of the largest urban university-corporate parks in the world and the largest in the United States. Today, the 16-acre (65,000 m²), $1 billion complex is home to the institute and several technology-dependent companies, including Securities Industry Automation Corporation (SIAC), New York City Police Department's 911 Center, New York City Fire Department Headquarters and the U.S. technology and operations functions of JPMorgan Chase. In 1998, a Marriott Hotel was built adjacent to MetroTech. MetroTech has proven to be a case study in effective university, corporate, government and private-developer cooperation. It has resulted in renewing an area that once was characterized more by urban decay.

Wunsch Building houses the school's undergraduate admissions offices and is used to host many social, cultural, and academic events for the school and community.[8] The building dates back to 1847 and was the first independent black church in Brooklyn. It was also a stop on the Underground Railroad and has been designated a historic landmark since November 24, 1981[9].

Dibner Library
The Bern Dibner Library of Science and Technology, opened in 1990 in a new building, is Polytechnic's information hub, accessible online from anywhere, on or off campus, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, wireless networks allow users with notebook computers to access the library's electronic services from anywhere on campus.

The Poly community also has access to NYU's other libraries, including Elmer Holmes Bobst Library and Frederick L. Ehrman Medical Library.

NYU-Poly has two residence halls in brooklyn; Othmer hall is (generally) for undergraduate students and Livingston Hall for graduate students.

The Othmer Residence Hall is a 18-story building, housing over 400 students in two-bedroom suites and two-bedroom apartments with kitchenettes. This recently renovated residence hall has wireless internet facilities and includes student lounges, study rooms, laundry facilities, outdoor space and 24-hour security.[10]

The Livingston Residence Hall is a 26 story building, housing over 115 graduate students in one bedroom apartments and studios with full kitchens or kitchenette and dining areas. This residence hall is more independent than Othmer and requires that students arrange for their own internet facilities. NYU Public Safety Services officers are on duty 24 hours a day.[10][11]

Long Island Campus

This campus was opened in 1961. Today it is nationally renowned as one of the nation’s premier technological universities. Recently, they moved to a state of the art facility at The Melville Corporate Center. When they moved to the new facility, they also expanded their graduate programs to include Electrophysics, Systems Engineering, Telecommunication Networks and Wireless Innovation. Most classes and programs offered at this campus are geared towards working professionals.

Westchester Campus

Established in the 1980s, this graduate center is the Hudson Valley’s premier center for technical and managerial education. People from all over the tri state region travel in to attend classes for graduate studies in the fields of Chemistry, Management of Technology, Telecommunications, Electrical Engineering, Construction Management, Information Systems Engineering and Computer Science. Here again, the classes are geared towards the working professionals. The facility is completely wired and has advanced computer labs and conference style classrooms.

Manhattan Site

Located at Broad Street in downtown Manhattan, this site again is in the heart of New York. This site offers degree programs in Financial Engineering, Management of Technology, Information Management and Accelerated Management of Technology. The Manhattan Graduate Center offers another state of the art facility for the working professionals in the Manhattan area. This site usually attracts those researchers and professors who want to further their education at a prestigious facility that focuses on technology.

Israel Campus

Located in Rishon LeZion, Saharov 5 street in College of Management. This campus offers Master of Science in Management MSM and Master of Science in Organization Behavilour MSOB degrees.

History

Name

Polytechnic Institute of NYU has carried a number of different names.[13]

  • 1854: Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute
  • 1889: Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn
  • 1973: Polytechnic Institute of New York (merged with New York University's school of engineering)
  • 1985: Polytechnic University
  • 2008: Polytechnic Institute of New York University

NYU affiliation

In 1973, New York University’s School of Engineering and Science merged into the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn to form the Polytechnic Institute of New York.[14] The 2008 affiliation between Poly and NYU has re-established a formal relationship between New York University and the former Polytechnic Institute of New York after nearly 35 years of separation.[15] The institute is now an interim entity while it aligns itself to become NYU's dedicated resource for applied sciences and engineering.[16][17]

On August 7, 2007, Polytechnic and New York University (NYU) announced that the two institutions were engaged in merger discussions.[18][19] In October 2007, NYU’s and Polytechnic's Boards of Trustees both approved continuation of talks on a merger of NYU and Polytechnic. Both institutions decided to continue drafting a Definitive Agreement to more fully define the relationship between the universities.[20][21]

On March 6, 2008, Polytechnic’s Board of Trustees voted to approve the "Definitive Agreement" to affiliate with New York University, with the goal that Polytechnic would become NYU's school of engineering and technology. On June 24, 2008, the New York State Regents approved an affiliation between Polytechnic and NYU by a change of charter which made NYU the sole member of the Polytechnic, effective July 1, 2008.[20][22][23]
