SUNY IT in Marcy officially has a new name.

The State University of New York Board of Trustees has voted unanimously to approve SUNY Polytechnic Institute (SUNY Poly) as the name for the recently merged SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering/SUNY Institute of Technology.

Officals with the SUNY Board of Trustees say the SUNY Poly name unifies the Albany and Marcy campuses and reflects the expanded academic programs and opportunities available for students.

SUNY Board of Trustees Chairman H. Carl McCall said, “The State University of New York is excited to announce the official naming of SUNY Polytechnic Institute—a fitting name for the high tech capabilities and unique educational programs the institute will offer as it drives unparalleled business growth and job creation across New York State in support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the SUNY system’s innovation-focused visions. Dr. Kaloyeros and the students, faculty, and staff at SUNY Poly are going to continue to build on New York’s national and international leadership in the global economy’s most competitive industries.”
