Polytechnic University’s mission is to help produce and support the leaders of tomorrow by providing excellence in education and research in the engineering and science related fields. The school aims to educate students both in the classroom and through turning the surrounding city into a living laboratory through co-ops and internships at top companies.
The university was founded in 1854 in Brooklyn, New York, and is the United States' second oldest technical university. The school will soon be merged with New York University, and the name will be changed to the Polytechnic Institute of New York University. Currently, the school has its main campus at the MetroTech Center, but courses are offered at locations on Long Island, Manhattan and Westchester, and even as far as Israel.
The Polytechnic University has a disguised history in electrical engineering, polymer chemistry, aerospace and microwave engineering. Currently it has leading programs in telecommunications, information science and technology management. The school is known for the research it does on campus as well as its programs to engage high school and elementary school students in math and science. The school also boasts a long list of notable alumni including Nobel Prize winners, heads of major corporations, and inventors.
The school offers graduate degrees in their online program called ePoly. Students will receive the same instruction as students on campus and have access to The Bern Dibner Library of Science and Technology. Programs are available in Chemistry, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Organizational Behavior, Mechanical, Aerospace, and Manufacturing Engineering, and Technical Writing and Journalism.
