New York Tech students are makers, doers, innovators, and inventors, eager to make the world a better place. They take on real-world problems and tackle them inside and outside the classroom. Our undergraduate and graduate students conduct groundbreaking research, pursue internships at top companies, volunteer at organizations in need, and attend professional conferences to network with industry leaders. When they graduate, they are ready to lead, heal, and create.
