SUNY Polytechnic Institute has been recognized by the National Science Foundation as the top university in the country for business-funded research and development.

In achieving the distinction, SUNY Poly surpassed other leading schools including Duke, MIT and Stanford.

The Foundation’s report places SUNY Poly and its Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering atop nearly 900 American colleges and universities in 2013, with $201.6 million in research and development expenditures derived from more than 300 corporate and business partners.

The report shows while higher education research and development increased by less than half a percent in 2013, SUNY Poly increased 41%  year-to-year.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says the report is proof that New York's high-tech economy, which epitomized by the groundbreaking research partnerships established by SUNY Poly and CSNE, continues to draw interest from investors and business leaders around the globe.

“New York is leading the way in creating opportunities for the academic and business communities to thrive, which is translating to major investments from the private sector in some of the brightest minds and most innovative research projects in the State,” Governor Cuomo said.
