photo licenses[edit]

Hi,

Thanks for the streetcar photos. Could you please add the appropriate license tag? I think {{GFDL-self}} is what you're looking for.

Thanks - Tempshill 14:42, 30 October 2005 (UTC)

Image Tagging Image:DeutchBahn-ACloco.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:DeutchBahn-ACloco.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the image, so the copyright status is therefore unclear. If you have not created the image yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the image on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the image yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the image also doesn't have a copyright tag then you must also add one. If you created/took the picture then you can use {{GFDL}} to release it under the GFDL. If you can claim fair use use {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or {{fairuse}}. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other images, please check that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of image pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thanks so much.

Image copyright problem with Image:Yonge-Buildings.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Yonge-Buildings.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thank you. Admrboltz (T | C) 18:29, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

Image tagging[edit]

You need to tag all your images, or reviewers less nice than myself :-) will delete them all preemptorily. I just add a "GFDL-presumed" at Image:T1-SubwayCarINSIDE.jpg, but your contribution list [1] shows a bunch more that need them, so please tag them as soon as possible. Thanks!

Help with Copyright Tags[edit]

Hey there! From reading through your page above it seems you have failed to add appropriate copyright tags onto a number of images which you have uploaded to Wikipedia. That's a real shame, since images such as Image:BC-QuadSnow.jpg, taken by yourself, would make a good contribution to the encyclopedia, and risk being deleted (indeed, some of the images listed above now have been). All you need to do is to add one of the appropriate tags from Wikipedia:Image copyright tags to the image description page. If it is an image you have created yourself, and you are happy for anyone to use it, then I would suggest {{PD-self}} or {{GFDL}} would be appropriate. Feel free to ask any questions by posting on my talk page if I can help. Thanks, UkPaolo/talk 16:32, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

Image formatting[edit]

Hello there, after leaving the last message, I proceeded to check through some of your contributions. My, it seems like you've been a busy shutter bug. However, I am coming to express a concern for the formatting of your images when you place them in an article. Since you appear to be new-ish here, let me explain:

Usually when there is only one image in a section, we place it at the start of the header, for example:

== Blah Blah ==
[[Image:BlahBlah.JPG|thumb|250px|right|Blah Blah.]]
When there are two or more images, please do this:
== Blah Blah ==
[[Image:BlahBlah.JPG|thumb|250px|right|Blah Blah.]]
[[Image:BlahBlah.JPG|thumb|250px|right|Blah Blah.]]

It is also standard to wiki link within the images, since many people look at the images before they read the content, thus:

[[Image:BlahBlah.JPG|thumb|250px|right|[[Blah Blah]].]]

Also, please make sure that horizontal images are at the standard 250px while vertical images are somewhere around 220px. A period after the text in the image descriptor is also great!

Thanks so much, and keep up the great image contributions! Páll (Die pienk olifant) 09:10, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Hello from an ex-Bostonian and ex-New Yorker![edit]

Hi there! Well, the thing is that I don't live in the US anymore. I moved back to Moscow almost a year ago and have no regrets about it whatsoever. Here in Russia, life is so rich with events, relaxed and enjoyable, unlike in NY, which I couldn't stand (my last year there especially). I miss Boston though and all the fun I had there with international students (mostly Ukrainian). I'd like to visit it again someday. Ask whatever questions you have about Boston or NY or Wikipedia :). Happy editing! KNewman 12:49, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

Re: How are you, Railfan?[edit]

Hello! I just wanted to say thanks for the greeting and letting me know about Mike's wonderful TTC website. If you're working on articles on particular trams in SPb, that's great! Make sure you link to them from the Tramways in Saint Petersburg page once those articles are complete; maybe I could help you out as well. As you see, my article on tramway service in SPb is still a work in progress, and a lot needs to be done, so you're welcome to help out. I'll try to finish the history section soon, if I have time. - Canwolf 21:24, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Add it to Wikiversity? Hmmmmm... I don't know. I thought there was lots of good encyclopedia-type info on your page. It seems to me the better solution is make it all read like an encyclopedia article, and then add enough links to it on other pages so that they will take off that tag. Wikipedia has a policy against including "original" materials, so it will require some work to make sure that all available citations are included in the right places. As far as Wikiversity goes, I don't know anything at all about their standards, policies and aims. Maybe you should copy the content over there and see what happens. But don't delete it from Wikipedia.

Good luck on your final.

Photos of Lomená Street[edit]

Hi, GK tramrunner! According to your wish I've taken some fifty photos and three very short (and poor) videos of Lomená Street. The weather wasn't much favourable on the last Sunday here, mostly overcast, but better than nothing. Now I ask, what to do with those images? It's about 60 MB total, which is not very comfortable for a man with a low-speed GPRS connection like me. :-) What do you need it for? I would also need your e-mail address. Пока! --Miaow Miaow 23:55, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Thank you for the message. Unfortunately, I never went to New Utrecht High School. I started the article after writing one about Barbara Grizzuti Harrison, who was a student there in the 1950s. I knew that a lot of famous people had gone to the school, so I was surprised that it didn't have an article already. I grew up in West Virginia, which is very different from New York!

I hope you get to visit London one day. It's a very interesting city. I have not been to Aachen, but I have visited Berlin and Munich. I would like to visit more of central and eastern Europe -- so far I have only made one brief trip to Poland. I'm part Ukrainian myself; my great-grandmother was an ethnic Ukrainian from Przemyśl.

I did make a few of the userboxes on my page myself (the spaghetti, Aubrey-Maturin and environmentalist boxes, for example), but I'm afraid most of the stuff on there is copied from other people!

Your photographs of Brooklyn are very good. I hope you plan to contribute more to Wikipedia in future.

Welcome! We are glad to see another user take park in our project. As we are still working hard after 2+ years, yet, we are glad to see more people helping us.

Image:Aachen-ElegantStreet.JPG requires attention[edit]

Hello. An image you had previously uploaded, Image:Aachen-ElegantStreet.JPG, did not have a licensing tag. Another editor has tagged the image as {{GFDL-presumed}}. You may wish to visit the image page and provide the correct license. You can view a list of all the image licensing tags at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags/All. The image risks being nominated for deletion as failing to have a license. Many of these {{GFDL-presumed}} image are used on User pages. --User:Gay Cdn (talk) (Contr) 00:41, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Pictures on New Jersey Transit rail operations[edit]

In cleaning up the articles, most of the pictures that were on that page were moved to a Wikimedia Commons link. If possible, please move the pictures on that page that you uploaded to the Commons.

New userboxes[edit]

I might be wrong, I've never made one myself, but I think you're going to need to move the pages for your recently created userboxers.
From WP:UBX:

"In the user namespace, you may create a subpage of your own user page or User:UBX."

The way they are created now, they look like the userpages of editors who don't exist.
Again, maybe I'm just reading the guideline incorrectly. I just noticed them while new page patrolling and thought it looked odd. --OnoremDil 16:06, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

MK-61[edit]

I didn't really add much to the article, but yes, I have sentimental feelings about that calculator, too :) By the way, if the MK-61 emulator is available online, could you add a link to it to the article? I think the article will benefit from it. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 16:07, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Hi, GK! Thanks for the links, I'm sure I'm going to give the emulator a try this weekend! Ahh, the memories! :)
I do live in the U.S. (Midwest), but being rather paranoid about privacy I prefer not to disclose where exactly. Nothing personal; I hope you understand! Same goes for ICQ communications. However, if you need to ask me anything that's not suitable to be asked here on my talk page (perhaps because it is not really Wikipedia-related), you are more than welcome to email me. You didn't happen to be a member of клуб электронных игр for MK-61 & 52 in the beginning of the 1990s by any chance? The club was run by mail by some guy in Samara (I forgot his name, unfortunately), who published a newsletter and helped folks connect to exchange various MK-61 programs.

Editing suggestions[edit]

Thanks for your edits to the NYC subway pages, especially bus connections. There are a few things you could do to make your edits more productive.

When linking, you need to check two things:

  1. There actually is a Wikipedia article by that name;
  2. The article is the place or thing you intended

Here are some examples:

  • Several of your edits included a link to Williamsburgh. What you actually needed was Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In the article text, you would put [[Williamsburg, Brooklyn|Williamsburg]]
  • Several of your edits included a link to Ocean Avenue, which is a rock album. What you actually needed was Ocean Avenue (Brooklyn). In the article text you would put [[Ocean Avenue (Brooklyn)|Ocean Avenue]].
  • Several of your edits included a link to Prospect Park. There are many Prospect Parks, so this link goes to a disambiguation page. What you actually needed was Prospect Park, Brooklyn. In the article text, you would put [[Prospect Park, Brooklyn|Prospect Park]].

These are only examples. Unfortunately, there is no substitute for checking every link.

When you're finished editing, if a link is colored red, it means that Wikipedia has no article by that title. In many cases, you'll find the article under another name. One of your edits included a link to Hil Hodges Memorial Bridge. This was a misspelling for Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge, but Wikipedia doesn't have that either. The correct link was to Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge.

I know it can be tedious, but these links do need to be checked. Thanks, and Happy Editing! Marc Shepherd (talk) 15:39, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

General circuit theory[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article General circuit theory, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of General circuit theory. — BillC talk 23:08, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Ghent Tram[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test worked, and the page that you created has been or soon will be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Quartermaster (talk) 15:40, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Removing Speedy at Ghent Tram[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg

Please do not remove speedy deletion tags from articles you created, as you did with Ghent Tram. If you do not believe the article deserves to be deleted, then please do the following:

  1. Place {{hangon}} on the page. Please do not remove any existing speedy deletion tag(s).
  2. Make your case on the article's talk page.

Administrators will look at your reasoning before deciding what to do with the article. Thank you. - SDPatrolBot (talk) 15:47, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Ghent Tram[edit]

You might want to create a sandbox page to create articles. Once you are finished, you can then copy and paste the entire article at once and avoid speedy delete tags that get placed in blank (as in my case) or short articles. Note that a speedy delete tag can be placed by anyone, but only an administrator can delete an article. I am not an administrator. --Quartermaster (talk) 15:59, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

File source problem with File:23rdStreetMidtown.JPG[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:23rdStreetMidtown.JPG. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 22:54, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Wallace McDowell Award, and several Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Awards winners. Several current and former presidents of professional societies such as American Chemical Society, American Society of Civil Engineers and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), are alumni. The financial engineering program was the second program of its kind, anywhere and the first curriculum to be certified by the International Association of Financial Engineers.[11][12] NYU-Poly was one of the first universities to introduce a cyber security program, and is designated as both a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education and a Center of Academic Excellence in Research by the National Security Agency.[13] Polytechnic is the first school in New York City to receive the designation Center of Excellence in Information Assurance Education by the U.S. National Security Agency.[14] Polymer engineering in the United states began at NYU-Poly. Polytechnic people include the first president of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), founders of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering (NAE)),[15][16][17][18] and founder of United States of America Mathematical Olympiad. Polytechnic people played a key role in the establishment of bioengineering and biomedical engineering[19][20] NYU-Poly operates several on-campus and off-campus business incubators and is one of the ten schools of NYU that is part of the NYU Entrepreneurs Network (NYUEN).[21][22] It is a founding member of the Association of Independent Technological Universities. Poly Prep Country Day School, a college preparatory school, was once integrated with the University and shares its founding.

History[edit]

John Raymond, President Polytechnic Institute 1858

NYU-Poly was formerly Polytechnic University and it is currently an interim entity that maintains a formal affiliation with NYU, allowing NYU to complete the transition for Poly to become the School of Engineering and Technology within NYU (see NYU Affiliation below).[23][24]

Timeline[edit]

The official timeline for the Institute is maintained on Poly at a Glance: the Poly Timeline.[25]

  • A group of Brooklyn businessmen drew up a charter on May 17, 1853, to establish a school for young men.
  • In 1854, the Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute was chartered and moved into its first home at 99 Livingston Street.
  • In 1855, the school opened its doors September 10 to 265 young men, ages nine to 17. From 1889 to 1973 it was known as "Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn" (but often referred to as "PIB" or "Brooklyn Poly").
  • Baccalaureate degrees were conferred for the first time in 1871.
  • Postgraduate programs began in 1901.
  • In 1917, the preparatory program was separated from Institute and renamed the Polytechnic Preparatory Country Day School, or Poly Prep for short. It is located in the Dyker Heights section of Brooklyn.
    Polytechnic Institute Electrostatic Laboratory 1903–1904
  • First doctoral degree awarded in 1921.
  • Polymer Research Institute established in 1942.
  • Microwave Research Institute established in 1945.
  • In 1957, Poly moved to its present location (333 Jay Street, the former site of the American Safety Razor factory), and became a co-educational institution.
  • In 1973, Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn acquired the faculty and programs of New York University’s School of Engineering and Science to form Polytechnic Institute of New York after NYU was forced to sell the University Heights campus (where the engineering school was situated) because of financial hardships.
  • Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications (CATT) established in 1983.
  • In 1985, the school gained university status and its name was changed to Polytechnic University.
  • In 2008, Polytechnic changed its name to Polytechnic Institute of New York University when it became affiliated with NYU, in order to align itself to become the School of Engineering and Technology within NYU.

Name[edit]

Polytechnic Institute of NYU has carried a number of different names.[26]

  • 1854: Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute (founding name)
  • 1889: Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn (separated from preparatory program)
  • 1973: Polytechnic Institute of New York (merged with New York University School of Engineering and Science)
  • 1985: Polytechnic University (acquired university status)
  • 2008: Polytechnic Institute of New York University (officially affiliated with New York University)

New York University affiliation[edit]

In 1973, New York University’s School of Engineering and Science was merged into the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn to form the Polytechnic Institute of New York.[27] The 2008 affiliation between Poly and NYU re-established a formal relationship between New York University and the former Polytechnic Institute of New York after nearly 35 years of separation.[28] The Institute is now an interim entity while it aligns itself to become NYU's dedicated resource for applied sciences and engineering.[29]

On August 7, 2007, Polytechnic and New York University (NYU) announced that the two institutions were engaged in merger discussions.[30][31] In October 2007, NYU’s and Polytechnic's Boards of Trustees both approved continuation of talks on a merger of NYU and Polytechnic. Both institutions decided to continue drafting a Definitive Agreement to more fully define the relationship between the universities.[32][33]

On March 6, 2008, Polytechnic’s Board of Trustees voted to approve the "Definitive Agreement" to affiliate with New York University, with the goal that Polytechnic would become NYU's engineering, applied science, and technology school. On June 24, 2008, the New York State Regents approved an affiliation between Polytechnic and NYU by a change of charter which made NYU the sole member of the Polytechnic, effective July 1, 2008.[32][32][34]

Consolidation into New York University[edit]

It has been confirmed by the school authorities that the interim Polytechnic Institute of NYU is on the path to being completely consolidated into NYU as its School of Engineering and Technology by 2014, similar to that of NYU College of Arts and Sciences, Stern School of Business, Tisch School of the Arts, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, Gallatin School of Individualized Study, and other NYU schools.[35][36]

Campuses[edit]

NYU-Poly has its main campus in Downtown Brooklyn and is close to transportation routes and easily accessible from all parts of New York City and Long Island. In addition to its main address at MetroTech Center in Downtown Brooklyn, the institute offers programs at other sites throughout the region, including Long Island, Westchester, and Manhattan, as well as several programs in Israel, China and the Middle East.[10][37] NYU-Poly is an integral part of NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai and the NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) in downtown Brooklyn.[38]

Existing campuses[edit]

Brooklyn Campus[edit]

The Institute played a leadership role in bringing about MetroTech Center, one of the largest urban university-corporate parks in the world and the largest in the United States. Today, the 16-acre (65,000 m²), $1 billion complex is home to the Institute's main campus and several technology-dependent companies, including Securities Industry Automation Corporation (SIAC), New York City Police Department's 911 Center, New York City Fire Department Headquarters and the U.S. technology and operations functions of JPMorgan Chase. In 1998, a Marriott Hotel was built adjacent to MetroTech. MetroTech has proven to be a case study in effective university, corporate, government and private-developer cooperation. It has resulted in renewing an area that once was characterized more by urban decay.

The Rogers Hall (Main buildings) Residence Hall, and the Dibner Library of NYU-Poly
Главный учебный корпус Политехнического Института

Wunsch Building houses the school's undergraduate admissions offices and is used to host many social, cultural, and academic events for the school and community.[39] The building dates back to 1847 and was the first independent black church in Brooklyn. It was also a stop on the Underground Railroad and has been designated a historic landmark since November 24, 1981.[40]

The Bern Dibner Library of Science and Technology, opened in 1990 in a new building, is Polytechnic's information hub, with many of its offerings accessible online.

The Othmer Residence Hall is a 18-story building housing over 400 students and was opened in 2002, and currently houses freshmen and sophomores. It is named after Donald Othmer, a past chemical engineering professor at the Institute, and his wife, Mildred Othmer.

The Clark Residence, which opened in September 2010, offers housing to juniors, seniors, and graduate students.

It has been confirmed that NYU-Poly will build a massive tower on Jacobs Administration and Civil Engineering building site.[41] The developer will be selected in Spring 2013.[42]

Long Island Campus[edit]

The Long Island Graduate Center was opened in 1961. Recently, It was closed and classes were moved to a small portion of the Melville Corporate Center. Graduate programs were expanded to include Electrophysics, Systems Engineering, Telecommunication Networks and Wireless Innovation.

Westchester Campus[edit]

Established in the 1980s, in the Hudson Valley, NYU-Poly's Westchester campus offers several graduate programs and operates similarly to the Long Island Campus.

Manhattan Site[edit]

Located in Manhattan, this site offers degree programs in Financial Engineering, Management of Technology, Information Management and Accelerated Management of Technology. The Manhattan Graduate Center offers a facility for working professionals.

Located at 2 Broadway in downtown Manhattan. This site offers NYU Poly Exec 21 Construction Management certificate.

Center for Urban Science and Progress at Brooklyn Campus[edit]

The Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) is a degree-granting technology and research institute, that will be located in Downtown Brooklyn, New York. The 460,000-square-foot building is located on NYU's Brooklyn campus. It will be a research facility at Polytechnic Institute of New York University mainly focusing on urban engineering, civil engineering, computer science, and electrical engineering.[43] It will open by September 2013, and will be located in the MetroTech Center in Downtown Brooklyn. NYU hopes the new center will help to encourage collaboration between experts in different fields, allowing them to solve problems that they would be unable to solve alone.

Bioengineering Institute in Manhattan[edit]

New York University is creating an innovative Institute for Bioengineering that will cross multiple disciplines and schools of the university. It is intended to foster close collaboration particularly among the Polytechnic Institute (NYU-Poly), Courant Institute, Faculty of Arts and Science, Center for Neural Science, Colleges of Dentistry and Nursing, as well as the School of Medicine. The combined expertise and talent available in these units is already considerable. Part of the Institute’s new activities will occur on the Campus of NYU-Poly in Brooklyn while the part particularly devoted to applied biomedical research and development will be housed in a new building under construction in Manhattan near the Medical School, cohabiting with the College of Dentistry and Nursing. The 11-story, state-of-the-art facility, planned for 433 First Ave., will be 170,000-square-feet large and 183-feet high. The previous building on the site, which was used for administrative and academic office for the school’s College of Dentistry, was demolished in September. Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is designing the exterior, while EYP Architecture & Engineering is working on the interior design. It is slated to open in 2015. The new building will cost $140 million. The area is already home to a cluster of health-related University programs, including the NYU College of Dentistry and the NYU School of Medicine.

Israel Campus[edit]

Located in Rishon LeZion in the College of Management. This campus offers Master of Science in Management and Master of Science in Organizational Behaviour degrees.

New York University Abu Dhabi[edit]

In October 2007, New York University announced its intention to open a complete branch campus in Abu Dhabi, financed by the Abu Dhabi government.[44] The Abu Dhabi campus was planned by New York University, and the funding mainly came from the Government of the United Arab Emirates.[45] It was first opened in 2008 on a temporary site in downtown Abu Dhabi, and held various public events such as academic conferences, workshops, and performances.[46] It accepted its first class of 150 students in September 2010.[45] As of 2010 the college offered liberal arts and science subjects, including engineering.[47] New York University plans to move the Abu Dhabi campus to a new site by 2014, and plans to increase the number of students at the campus to two thousand.[45] The university plans to open a graduate school and to make the school a center for research.[47] The new campus will be in the Marina district of Saadiyat Island, and is designed by Rafael Viñoly, an Uruguayan architect.[48]

NYU-Poly is integrally connected to NYU Abu Dhabi like other schools of NYU and is responsible for NYU Abu Dhabi's engineering programs.

Alfred Bloom, former president of Swarthmore College, was appointed to lead NYU Abu Dhabi as vice chancellor in September 2008. [49]

New York University Shanghai[edit]

NYU Shanghai (NYU-SH) is the latest of NYU's new base campuses, and will have its first class in 2013. The NYU Shanghai curriculum will include a variety of majors in the Life and Behavioral Sciences (such as Neural Science), the Physical Sciences (such as Chemistry and Physics), Social Sciences (including Business and Finance), Mathematical and Engineering Sciences (including Computer Science and Electrical Engineering), and the Humanities. NYU-Poly will be integrally connected like other schools of NYU and will be responsible for NYU Shanghai's engineering programs. As members of NYU's global network, students at NYU Shanghai will be expected to spend at least one semester and up to three semesters pursuing their studies at the other NYU global academic centers. In this way students will have the opportunity to pursue major-specific courses in New York or Abu Dhabi with professors from those campuses. In addition, the study-away sites will offer special opportunities for a semester abroad.
