2. Connect to New York

NYIT gives you the option of studying in New York City (the world’s largest economic, cultural, and technological center) or in Old Westbury, Long Island (which offers Division I and II athletic teams and is ranked among the safest campuses in the United States). You can take classes and participate in activities at both campuses while you’re at NYIT.

3. Become a Global Citizen

Study in New York or at our campuses in Canada, China, and the United Arab Emirates. In many programs, you can move seamlessly among campuses and complete your studies without missing a beat. Wherever you study, you’ll be connected to students and faculty from around the world.

4. Get an In-Demand Degree

NYIT’s technology-infused, career-oriented programs feature a core curriculum that provides a strong foundation for career growth. What you learn at NYIT is up to date, future focused, and addresses employers’ needs. And our accreditations in programs including architecture, business, engineering, nursing, education, health professions, and more give you a competitive edge.

5. Find a Financial Advantage

NYIT offers one of the lowest private tuitions in New York State and more than $40 million in institutional financial aid each year. 80% of our undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid.

Today’s marketplace calls for interdisciplinary experience and expertise. You’ll learn how to creatively approach projects, research, coursework, and academic competitions that involve students and faculty members at all our schools and colleges: Arts and Sciences, Architecture and Design, Education, Engineering and Computing Sciences, Health Professions, Management, and Osteopathic Medicine.

7. Be Part of Real-World Solutions

Every day, NYIT faculty members and students are conducting applications-oriented research in sustainability, cybersecurity, robotics, physical and occupational therapy, nursing, educational technology, architecture and urban planning, motion capture, entrepreneurship, and more.
