The NYU School of Engineering has a rich history as the second oldest private university in the U.S. dedicated solely to engineering, science, and technology — bringing to fruition some of the most important inventions of the 20th century, such as the cables for the Brooklyn Bridge, the delivery system for penicillin, the zoom lens, and even the automated quote system at NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange. In 2008, with the affiliation between Polytechnic University and New York University, the new NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering was created. By reaching this agreement, two strong institutions will be even stronger than either would be on its own. For NYU, it reconnects the University to an engineering research and education capacity that it has not had for over three decades. For the NYU School of Engineering, it connects a venerable school of engineering and technology to a national research university. Today, the Institute is poised to lead the 21st century in invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship (i2e) — our mantra, which creatively brings together faculty and students for stimulating research, technological advancement, and a mutual passion for science, engineering, and technology. back to top

Since its founding in 1854, the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering has been committed to serving underrepresented students. Today, the NYU School of Engineering still administers a broad range of scholarships and financial aid to assist needy students in advancing their educational goals. To meet the total cost of education, students draw upon such available sources as student income, family income, federal and state funding, as well as both merit- and need-based Institute grants.
In addition to arranging tours for prospective undergraduate students, we also welcome and encourage counselors to visit the NYU School of Engineering by offering on-campus group visits, providing counselors and their students with the opportunity to meet with an admissions counselor, tour our campus with a student Ambassador, and sit in onthe NYU School of Engineering's interactive Introduction to Engineering course.
Fall 2013: We are currently accepting visit requests.

At the NYU School of Engineering, diversity matters. Students come from around the United States and from around the globe in order to celebrate their differences. We believe that the college experience is strengthened by a diverse student population, working together in a collaborative environment, where students are inspired to learn from one another and develop the team building skills that are essential to success in their fields.
In the last year alone, the NYU School of Engineering appeared on U.S. News & World Report’s 2010 review of the nation’s colleges, ranking fourth in the nation for ethnic diversity in its student body. The NYU School of Engineering ranked in the top ten for international students. Last but not least, we also ranked in the top twenty-five colleges for economic diversity, with nearly 60% of our new undergraduates being eligible for Pell Grants.
As the NYU School of Engineering continues to diversify its student body, we also recommend and encourage young women to apply, as they are now eligible for the Poly WEST (Women in Science, Engineering and Technology) Scholarship.
These statistics simply prove something that we have always known: the NYU School of Engineering, given its distinguished history in one America’s great cities, has one of the most diverse undergraduate populations in the nation. back to top
