SUNY Polytechnic Institute

SUNY Polytechnic Institute is the polytechnic institution of the State University of New York System (SUNY). Anchored by two primary academic locations in Albany and Utica, NY, SUNY Poly also maintains multiple technology innovation sites across NY where it partners with leading industries in global technology development and implementation.SUNY Poly's $24 billion Nanotech Complex, in Albany, is a global educational, research, development and prototyping facility with over 300 on site corporate partners, including IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries, Samsung and GE. Students engage applied learning and work alongside industry leaders on next generation technologies using cutting edge tools and facilities. SUNY Poly was the world's first institution to offer comprehensive baccalaureate programs in Nanoscale Engineering and Nanoscale Science - groundbreaking educational and research curricula to uniquely prepare students for scientific and engineering opportunities in the nanotechnology-enabled careers.SUNY Poly's Utica campus is home to the colleges of Engineering, Arts & Sciences, Business Management and Health Sciences, with an array of undergraduate degree opportunities, and vibrant residential campus atmosphere featuring NCAA Division III athletics and a large number of student clubs and activities. Specific degree programs include Network and Cyber Security, Interactive Media and Game Design, Nursing and Health Professions, Electrical, Civil, and Mechanical Engineering and Computer Information Systems, Engineering Technologies, as well as Business Management, Accounting, Mathematics, Biology and Sociology and Psychology.SUNY Poly's Utica site was founded in 1966, as an Upper Division College at Herkimer/Rome/Utica, offering graduate programs to students using classrooms at a local elementary school. In 1971, the college began operating in a former mill building in West Utica, which was gradually remodeled into classrooms, offices, and a library.The new campus in Marcy began in 1981, with the first building, Kunsela Hall, completed in 1984. In 1989, the college name was changed to the State University of New York Institute of Technology at Utica-Rome (SUNY IT). Steady growth and construction has continued over the years, including a $13 million student center, a $20 million field house and athletic fields and a $23.5 million residence hall. Most recently, the Utica site added the new $15M Center for Global Advanced Manufacturing facility for cutting edge project-based learning programs, graduate and undergraduate research experiences, and industry partnerships.SUNY Poly's Albany site began as the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE), a combined vision of government, academia and industry. The common goal was to propel NY to a leadership position in technology and economic development. Four key drivers comprised the strategy: an overarching discipline (nanotechnology), state-of- the-art infrastructure, focus on world-class, hands-on education and training, and public-private partnerships. Today, the Albany Nanotech Complex is a fully integrated research, development, prototyping, and educational facility spanning 1.65 million square-feet with state-of-the-art cleanroom and lab space. In 2015, the Albany site opened the $191 million Zero Energy Nanotechnology (ZEN) building, a living laboratory for clean and renewable energy technologies.SUNY Poly was officially formed on March 19, 2014, when the SUNY Board of Trustees unanimously approved the transformative merger of CNSE and SUNY IT. The pioneering academic model that integrates a unique interdisciplinary study, world-class faculty, experiential learning and unparalleled physical resources with significant private investment by some of the world's leading technology companies forms the foundation. The SUNY Poly curriculum offers unmatched workforce preparation and development and a platform for game-changing academics and research.
