Studying architecture or interior design at NYIT is a kinetic, collaborative, entrepreneurial experience. The city is your workshop; its leading practitioners your teachers. You’ll explore the art of the past while mastering new technologies that are pushing the boundaries of our field. We’ll help you find the confidence to turn your vision into practice and the connections to turn your practice into lifelong professional growth.
At NYIT, you will learn by doing, solving progressively more complex design challenges—in the studio, in the field, in professional settings, and in international competitions. We are deeply committed to sustainable design practices—it runs through all our curricula—and our graduate program in urban and regional design is at the forefront of innovative research in climate and environmental issues.
Our programs are offered at our Old Westbury, Manhattan, and Abu Dhabi campuses. We are the only school of architecture and design on Long Island and the only one in the New York City area with fully accredited programs in both architecture and interior design. Our alumni comprise the largest network of licensed architects in New York State and provide an incomparable source of guidance and employment opportunities.
