Expensive school for the education. If I can do it again I would reconsider. The campus is beautiful and I think the school has gotten better since I attended.

Furthermore, I made lifelong friends at the school and I gained skills that have helped me along the way.

The school and every opportunity in life is what you make of it and I truly believe that everything happens for a reason.

In the end, I am happy I attended NYIT and I am glad I took opportunities to take course work in the Manhattan campus as well. Join clubs, be involved and the experience will be worth it. I think the school is good for architecture and osteopathic medicine in particular. Other majors can be done at other schools for cheaper in my opinion.

I also did work-study which helped me pay for school.

Watch out for the campus security that is always on the hunt to give out tickets, etc.


I hope this helps any students looking to apply to New York Institute of Technology. It is a big investment overall.

Attended the Old Westbury campus my freshman year of college; declared as an Electrical & Computer Engineering undergrad. I loved the surrounding forest-like area, 90-minute train ride from home, campus food (Nathan's!) and new-found independence around other students my age. These traits didn't justify the school's high tuition, boring campus, downright ugly dorms, and largely incompetent STEM professors. The degraded residence halls make for a terrible dorm-life experience, there was no shortage of incomprehensible/ill-tempered foreign professors, and the curriculum quality did not reflect the 30k tuition price tag.

I met some of the most interesting, down-to-earth people at this campus and still keep in touch with them but I can't, in good conscience, recommend the school itself.
Overall NYIT is a great school for someone who wants to redefine themself out of high school. The ECE program is very good, with most of the professors being exceptionally caring and fair.I was able to go from a 3.4 average in high school to a graduating 3.8. Cheating is rampant and blatantly ignored, so you can have an easy time here if thats what you desire. However, this will impact your future career. Besides the engineering department, the school is pretty mediocre. The campus is beautiful, but empty and lacking life. Student life is a joke, and the dorms are terrible. The physics department is terrible, and I would say that the physics courses were more frustrating than even the highest level engineering courses. Overall i really enjoyed the program, i was given ample opportunities to succeed and I do very much believe the school provides the resources to emerge as a successful and competent candidate for grad school or industry.
