New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) offers professional degrees, in more than 50 fields of study. By 2028, New York Institute of Technology will become one of the most significant academic, scientific, and economic higher education assets to New York and GKV is helping NYIT to develop that vision.

As the new crown jewel of the campus a new building for a diverse mix of Advanced Research Laboratories is planned. Using an interdisciplinary and entrepreneurial approach the building will allow the school to promote its most innovative laboratories under one roof. Faculty and students will be able to tackle today's challenges in laboratories including Robotics, Motion Capture, Biomedical and Life Science, Cibersecurity, VR, and Scanning and Imaging Cores.

In addition inventive new learning environments will offer novel approaches to learning. A new kind of flexible Study Hall designed for silent leanring and group classes alike offers lounge-like studying in a cafe setting. Soft seating can be arranged in different ways, allowing for a classroom seating with front projection, high and low counters for laptop research or cafe tables for group study.

The school's new vision is also supported through renovation of traditional study halls, classrooms and labs, like Chemical labs and a Biomedical Engineering and Nano Fab Lab (BSL-2) and a health center.
