SUNY Polytechnic Institute

SUNY Polytechnic Institute (SUNY Poly) was officially formed on March 19, 2014, when the State University of New York Board of Trustees unanimously approved SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher’s recommendation to merge the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) in Albany and the SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNYIT) in Utica. The transformative merger was the product of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s pioneering vision and leadership to create an entity rooted in academia and capable of driving significant and sustained industrial and economic growth across the State of New York. As a result, SUNY Poly has emerged as the most dynamic and unique institution in the State University System with more than 7,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, faculty, and staff. SUNY Poly - A New Paradigm SUNY Poly represents a new and necessary paradigm for public and affordable higher education in science, engineering, and technology; one that is cognizant and respectful of the customary academic enterprise, while fostering and enabling the fast evolving culture of discovery and innovation in today’s knowledge-driven global economy.
