New York Institute of Technology
Engineering for Society, Innovation for a Better World

Students at New York Institute of Technology have the opportunity to work on 21st-century technological challenges that affect the world in which they live. New York Tech’s College of Engineering and Computing Sciences is known as the place where innovators, engineering firms, public utilities, and federal and state agencies seek talented faculty and students to advance their projects, inventions, and technologies in the classroom, the lab, or the field.

New York Tech and its College of Engineering and Computing Sciences have a great culture for new initiatives. The College, specifically, has a unique approach: Faculty and staff suggestions are taken seriously, there is impetus for growth and change, and it has a wonderfully talented group of faculty.

Our engineering faculty have an excellent spirit of collaboration, across disciplines and across its New York campuses in New York City and on Long Island. Examples include collaboration on multiple awarded National Science Foundation research grants, curriculum development, course delivery, undergraduate research programs and work within its Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC), which has locations on both New York campuses. New York Tech also has a campus in Vancouver, British Columbia, which offers graduate programs only.
