Brooklyn officials and civic leaders joined New York University officials at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) on Thursday to celebrate the merger of NYU-Poly (previously known as Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn and Polytechnic University) with NYU.
With this merger, which was officially completed on January 1, NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, located in MetroTech Center, becomes NYU’s newest school. The merger brings engineering back to NYU for the first time in four decades, since the closing of its University Heights Campus in the Bronx in 1973.
