The State University of New York Polytechnic Institute, commonly referred to as SUNY Polytechnic Institute or SUNY Poly,[6] is a public research university with campuses in the town of Marcy in the Utica-Rome metropolitan area and Albany, New York. Founded in 1966 using classrooms at a primary school,[7] SUNY Poly is New York's public polytechnic college.[8] The Marcy campus, formerly the SUNY Institute of Technology, has a Utica, New York mailing address and was established in 1987. The Albany campus was formerly a component of the University at Albany, established in January 2003.

SUNY Poly is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.[9] The university offers over 25 bachelor's degrees, 15 master's degrees, and three doctoral degrees within six different colleges. SUNY Poly students come from across the state of New York, throughout the United States, and more than twenty other nations. [10] More than 25,000 alumni enjoy successful careers in a wide range of fields.[11]

In July 2018, Dr. Grace Wang was appointed Interim President of SUNY Polytechnic Institute. [12]

History

Originally a graduate and upper-division (transfer) institution, SUNY Poly offered classes in temporary locations throughout Utica and at extension sites for several years until the first buildings were constructed on the permanent Marcy campus in the 1980s.[13] In 2002, the SUNY Board of Trustees approved a mission change, enabling SUNY Poly to offer upper-division programs in professional, technological, and applied studies. In 2003, SUNY Poly admitted its first class of freshmen, becoming a four-year institution.[14] This class graduated in May 2007.

The university's name derives from the 2014 merger of the SUNY Institute of Technology and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, formerly a component of the University at Albany. This merger created five colleges within the Institute, including the College of Arts & Sciences, the College of Engineering, the College of Health Sciences and Management, the College of Nanoscale Engineering, and the College of Nanoscale Science.

Currently, the university offers programs in the disciplines, engineering, engineering technology, nanoscale science, nanoscale engineering, as well as nanobioscience and nanoeconomics programs at its Albany campus. Other programs and degrees in business administration,[15] technology, nursing, design, professional studies, and the arts and sciences are offered at its Utica campus. The 2014 merger brought the first Ph.D program to the Utica campus in nanoscale science and nanoscale engineering, respectively.[16]

Campuses

Marcy

The Marcy campus occupies more than 400 acres, with major buildings, including three residential complexes, surrounded by trees and green landscape. The "west campus" property of more than 300 acres is reserved for the development of the Marcy NanoCenter. Construction and renovation projects totaling $100 million in recent years included a new student center, field house, and residence hall complex--all completed in 2011.

There are two academic halls on campus: William R. Kunsela Hall and James H. Donovan Hall.

Opened in March 2003, the Peter J. Cayan Library is on the southern portion of the campus.

Albany

Notable people who have visited the Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering include President Barack Obama[17] and Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Wozniak.[18]

Academics

SUNY Poly is organized into six colleges:

  • College of Arts & Sciences
  • College of Business Management
  • College of Engineering
  • College of Nursing
  • College of Nanoscale Engineering
  • College of Nanoscale Science

Research

Semiconductors and microchips

The Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering operates a pilot scale semiconductor fabrication plant in Albany, NY.

Cleanrooms

Currently, a US$250-300 million semiconductor manufacturing research facility known as the Computer Chip Commercialization Center or "Quad-C" is located on the Marcy campus.[19] The research facility leases space to Danfoss Power Solutions in the building owned by the university.[20]
