Past, Present, Future

We welcomed the dawn of a new age on July 1, 2008, when we officially became affiliated with New York University under the name Polytechnic Institute of NYU.

An alliance between Polytechnic, the nation’s second-oldest private engineering school, and NYU, the largest private university in the United States, resulted in broader, more valuable opportunities for students of New York and the nation, and will allow each of our institutions to more successfully meet the challenges of the 21st century.

As we embark on this next phase of our 150-plus-year-old evolution, we are inspired by the people and achievements of our rich history, are committed to reaching the academic and research goals of our vibrant present, and have our sights set on our promising future.
