Our mission within the School of Architecture and Design is to provide a design- and technology-based 21st-century professional education that enables leadership in the profession and within the community. We’ve identified three core values, or educational aspirations, to guide our approach:
- Design Intelligence, which refers to broad-based skills and intellectual rigor you’ll earn by completing a challenging curriculum that emphasizes individual creativity as well as an appreciation of history, culture, and the contributions made by architects to the art and science of building.
- Building Technology, which establishes the importance we place on technology within our coursework and approach. This value is manifested in a well-developed, hands-on curriculum in structures, environmental systems, sustainability, and building construction.
- Leadership, an attribute of character that we aspire to instill in all of our graduates. This is cultivated in many aspects of their education, including the inclusion of program-wide team projects that demand cohesive interaction and establishment of clear organizational structures to achieve project goals. Leadership is also developed through the holistic and ethical foundations of your NYIT educational experience. We actively participate in national and international initiatives where you’ll gain self confidence by working in collaboration with other institutions and organizations.
