More than 2,800 students are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate degree programs in technology, professional studies, and the liberal arts on the SUNYIT campus – a high-tech learning environment on hundreds of acres in Marcy, N.Y., minutes from NYS Thruway Exit 31, Utica. SUNYIT students come from all over New York, many other states, and more than 20 other nations, a growing number of students also take SUNYIT courses and, in some cases, entire degree programs online. Established by the SUNY Board of Trustees on June 14, 1966, the State University of New York Institute of Technology (SUNYIT) is the State University’s only institute of technology. Originally a graduate and upper-division institution, the college offered classes in temporary locations and at extension sites for several years until the first buildings were constructed on the permanent campus in the 1980s. Planning is underway for four major campus buildings: a $13 million student center, a $20 million field house, a $27.5 million technology center and a $23.5 million residence hall. A multi-million dollar renovation of Kunsela Hall, the first campus building constructed, was completed in 2007. The $14 million Cayan Library was dedicated in 2003. SUNYIT’s undergraduate degree majors/programs include: accounting, applied computing, applied mathematics, applied mathematics/electrical engineering, business, civil engineering technology, communication & information design, computer engineering technology, computer & information science, computer information systems, criminal justice, electrical engineering, electrical engineering technology, finance, general studies, health information management, health services management, industrial engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology, nursing, psychology, sociology, and telecommunications. Graduate degree programs are: the MBA in health services management, MBA in technology management, master of science degree programs in accountancy, advanced technology, applied sociology, computer & information science, health services administration, information design and technology, and telecommunications, and master of science programs in nursing: adult nurse practitioner, family nurse practitioner, gerontological nurse practitioner, nursing administration, and nursing education. Accelerated BS/MS options are available in computer science, nursing, and telecommunications. Apart from their excellent academic experience, SUNYIT students enjoy campus life in highly rated residence halls. The campus’s two residential complexes – Mohawk and Adirondack Halls – offer the privacy and convenience of apartments, with students sharing suites in townhouse-style buildings. Students themselves have rated their residential experience highly in the last two SUNY student opinion surveys. SUNYIT’s NCAA Division III athletics (men’s and women’s basketball, cross country, soccer, swimming, and volleyball, men’s baseball and golf, and women’s bowling and softball) and intramurals are complemented by entertainment, activities and community-building experiences that support and sustain a unique campus culture. Through internships and close cooperation with employers, SUNYIT has extraordinarily high placement rates. More than 22,000 alumni pursue successful careers in communication, computer science, management, nursing, and many other fields.
