We were founded in 1854 as Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute, best known as Brooklyn Poly. In 2014 an official merger was completed with NYU — a momentous event that brought the discipline of engineering back to the university for the first time since the closing of NYU's iconic University Heights campus four decades earlier. The following year we became the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. But no matter what name we’ve gone by, one thing has always remained the same: our promise to harness the power of science and technology for the sake of a better society.
