New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering Mission Statement

To excel as a leading high-quality research university engaged in education, discovery and innovation with social, intellectual and economic impact in the New York region, the nation and the world.

To achieve this mission, we educate, discover and invent. We engage students seeking educational achievement and opportunity, faculty seeking excellence and relevance, and organizations seeking solutions and talent. We creatively bring intellectual rigor, technological innovation and a passion for science to the communities where we work and live and to the citizens of the world. 

We innovatively extend the benefits of science, engineering, management and liberal studies to critical real-world opportunities and challenges, especially those linked to urban systems, health and wellness and the global information economy.

Our learning environment develops the skills to discover and invent, stimulates innovation and encourages entrepreneurship. We refer to this environment of invention, innovation and entrepreneurship as i2e.  It is what has produced generations of thought leaders and action-oriented learners who are capable of thinking globally and across multiple disciplines.

General Information

The New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering catalog is an official publication of NYU. The catalog provides information about academic programs and a summary of Institute policies and procedures and selected activities and services. Information concerning admission, academic regulations and requirements, student services, academic offerings and a listing of administrative officers and faculty are included. Every effort has been made to publish a complete and accurate catalog. However, requirements, deadlines, tuition, fees, curricula, courses and staffing are subject to change at any time without advance notice or obligation. Some course descriptions may vary from actual course content because of advancements in the discipline, emphasis of individual instructors or decisions of the faculty to change the scope or content of the course.

Note: This online version of the Bulletin contains revisions and updates in courses, academic programs, academic requirements and policies, and staffing that occurred after the publication of the 2011-2013 Academic Catalog PDF  version in September 2011. This we-based bulletin is the official bulletin of record of the School and will be amended on a yearly cycle as needed. Archives of all PDF-based bulletins and previous catalogs are available under the “Archived Bulletins” navigation on the sidebar.
