Farmingdale State Students Now Eligible for Automatic Admission into Top New York Tech Graduate Programs

May 6, 2021

A new agreement between New York Institute of Technology and Farmingdale State College allows qualified Farmingdale State students automatic admission into select graduate programs in the NYIT College of Engineering and Computing Sciences.

Farmingdale students who graduate with a minimum GPA of 2.85 and meet other admissions criteria can continue their education at New York Tech in five of the school’s 30-credit M.S. degree programs: Computer Science, Cybersecurity, Data Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. All of the master’s programs are offered at New York Tech’s Long Island (Old Westbury) and New York City (Manhattan) campuses, except Mechanical Engineering, which is offered at the Long Island campus exclusively.

This partnership enables automatic admission for Farmingdale graduates who majored in disciplines including Applied Economics, Computer Programming and Information Systems, Computer Science, and Computer Science Tech, upon completing prerequisite classes and maintaining a minimum grade point average. Whenever possible, course substitutions will be made to ensure adequate credit transfer for Farmingdale graduates. GRE scores and fees to evaluate and apply transferrable credits will also be waived as part of this partnership.

Farmingdale students taking advantage of this automatic admission program will also be eligible for priority registration as well as generous financial aid packages, scholarships of up to $3,000 per year, and graduate and research assistantships that provide partial tuition remission. They will also benefit from the ability to participate in federally funded research, access to the school’s Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC), lifetime access to career services resources, and a strong network of alumni with leadership positions in technology and related fields.

“We are excited to offer another pathway to our cutting-edge graduate programs in sought-after areas,” notes Babak Beheshti, Ph.D., dean of NYIT College of Engineering and Computing Sciences. “We look forward to welcoming the highly qualified students of Farmingdale State to the New York Tech community.”

Barb Christe, Ph.D., dean of Farmingdale State College’s School of Engineering Technology said, “New York Tech offers Farmingdale State College graduates an exciting option toward a practice-focused graduate degree that can support their career interests as implementors of technology. The well-articulated pathway can offer learners smooth transitions to graduate work.”
