College Profile

A college education is one investment that pays big dividends, and a degree from New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) offers students a competitive edge at an exceptional value. From NYIT’s campuses in New York to its programs around the world and online, students are able to customize their educational experience to meet their individual needs. NYIT’s dedicated, experienced faculty members help students prepare for the changing marketplace through hands-on learning experiences. They use the latest technologies in classrooms and labs to teach in more than 50 fields of study, including architecture and design, arts and sciences, education, engineering and computing sciences, health professions, management, and osteopathic medicine.

For nearly 60 years, NYIT has stayed true to its mission of providing qualified students with access to exceptional opportunities. It has delivered on this by offering students flexible schedules, 90 in-demand professional academic degree programs, and generous financial aid assistance.

NYIT’s strong academic reputation has attracted prominent guests and lecturers to augment the work of its distinguished faculty and researchers. Continuously upgraded facilities and ongoing deployment of advanced technology continue to meet the ever-changing needs of students, the marketplace, and the world.

Inspired Teaching
Faculty members at NYIT create an engaged community of learners and professionals who share a passion for practical education. They act as mentors to individual students while encouraging active learning and student teamwork. Professors at NYIT aren’t just instructors — they’re lifelong learners and experts in their fields who are also active outside of the classroom. They’re published professionals, expert speakers for their industries, and respected among their peers. They bring this knowledge to their courses and impart relevant, career-centered, and technologically-driven lessons that bring value beyond college.

Relevant Experience for a Rewarding Career
NYIT prepares students for rewarding careers and helps them realize their goals. That’s why 87 percent of graduates have jobs within six months of graduation.

An enhanced core curriculum is NYIT’s solution for addressing the skills that employers are looking for. It gives students skills in communications, literacy, critical and analytical thinking, an interdisciplinary mindset, ethical and civic engagement, a global perspective, and knowledge of the nature and process of arts and sciences. NYIT also gives students the chance to explore a future career through internships, community service, and events connecting students with employers and alumni. Students benefit from a rich campus life experience as well as leadership opportunities in clubs, organizations, campus-wide events, and intramural sports.

A Next Generation University
NYIT’s physical and digital presence continues to grow as it stays true to its mission and embraces opportunities and responsibilities in our increasingly smaller world. In fact, some of the most promising career opportunities for graduates require a global understanding and may even take them outside of the United States.

As a result, each of NYIT’s more than 12,000 students — hailing from nearly 50 states and 100 nations — are instilled with the capacity to engage the world. This includes bringing together students and professors from NYIT’s physical campuses in New York, Canada, China, and the United Arab Emirates into virtual classrooms, applying teaching techniques that enhance local and regional economies, and using technology to customize and enhance the NYIT experience for individual needs and cultures.

Students at NYIT’s campuses have many opportunities to study abroad and see the world firsthand. In the past few years, NYIT students have traveled to China, Costa Rica, Italy, Ecuador, France, India, Haiti, and other countries to study architecture, redesign landscapes, produce film documentaries, provide medical services, and participate in global business simulations. In addition, NYIT encourages students and faculty members at one campus to study at another NYIT campus outside their home countries.

NYIT’s commitment to interdisciplinary study and research gives students opportunities to collaborate on projects that span different fields of study. Recently, a group of students studying architecture, engineering, and management developed an award-winning business plan: an NYIT faculty-student research collaboration to create a system that up-cycles water bottles to form the shingles of a roof for shelters in disaster-stricken or developing nations.

Another cross-disciplinary project includes interior design and health professions students working together to develop furnishings to enhance quality of life for those with physical impairments.

A Virtual Blend
NYIT’s blend of traditional and online coursework allows students to customize an educational environment to best suit their learning styles and schedules. A forerunner in online education, NYIT has been offering this option to students since the 1980s. Today, NYIT’s online course content includes dynamic videos, demonstrations, simulations, and other rich media. In addition, the community-oriented online learning environment ensures that digital students are always connected with classmates and professors. This type of flexibility is critical today, when personal responsibilities, work schedules, and other commitments make it difficult to attend classes — and it gives students the freedom to tailor their education.

Success Starts at NYIT
NYIT has successfully created an educational environment that works across global and digital boundaries. The “anywhere, anytime” advantage of an NYIT education provides students around the world with the tools and opportunities they need to succeed, regardless of their physical location. As the 21st-century provides new opportunities for a global marketplace, NYIT offers new avenues of success for students ready to embrace tomorrow’s professions.
