Polytechnic Institute of New York University (formerly Polytechnic University), an affiliated institute of New York University, is a comprehensive school of engineering, applied sciences, technology and research, and is rooted in a 158-year tradition of invention, innovation and entrepreneurship: i2e. The institution, founded in 1854, is the nation’s second-oldest private engineering school. In addition to its main campus in New York City at MetroTech Center in downtown Brooklyn, it also offers programs at sites throughout the region, around the globe and remotely through NYUe-Poly. NYU-Poly is an integral part of NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai and the NYU center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) in downtown Brooklyn. For more information, visit www.poly.edu.
The ABET-accredited Department of Civil and Urban Engineering at NYU-Poly offers BS, MS and PhD degrees in civil engineering. With a distinguished history of research in urban infrastructure engineering and planning as well as environmental sustainability, the department is dedicated to advancing the body of knowledge and professional practice of civil and urban engineering to meet the imminent and ever-changing challenges of the future. Offering students the benefits of the most highly regarded faculty, the department continues to utilize the real-world urban laboratory of New York City and produce leaders prepared to meet the needs of an increasingly complex world with breakthrough advances in the field. This symposium is NYU-Poly’s Department of Civil and Urban Engineering’s tribute to George Bugliarello.
New York University, which was established in 1831, is one of the largest and most prestigious private research universities in the U.S. It has more international students than any other U.S. college or university. Through its numerous schools and colleges, NYU conducts research and provides education in the arts and sciences, law, medicine, dentistry, education, nursing, business, social work, the cinematic and performing arts, public administration and policy, and continuing studies, among other areas.
George Bugliarello’s vision was the creative force behind the development of MetroTech, the 16-acre urban university-industry park in downtown Brooklyn. The creation of MetroTech heralded the gentrification of the area and created over 20,000 jobs. The center attracted employers in major industries such as banking, utilities, securities, the New York City Fire Department, and large hotel chains such as the Marriott and Sheraton. Its success has proven to be a primary case study in university, corporate, government and private developer cooperation.
In April 2012, New York City announced the launch of the center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP), an applied science research institute created by NYU and Polytechnic Institute of NYU, with a consortium of world-class universities and the foremost international tech companies to address the needs of cities. Generating an entirely new sector in New York City’s economy and placing it at the center of a global stage in this field, CUSP will be located in MetroTech in a city-owned building steps from NYU-Poly.
