Dean's Welcome

Lou Reinisch

The newest school at NYIT, the School of Interdisciplinary Studies and Education, was designed to create visionary world leaders who have the broad background required to solve global-scale problems. We’ve combined interdisciplinary studies and education in recognition of the fact that the solutions to many of today’s biggest challenges lie in the nexus of these two fields.

The greatest challenges of mankind will not be solved by one individual. Instead, they will be solved by diverse teams working to a common goal.

Lou Reinisch, Ph.D.

At NYIT School of Interdisciplinary Studies and Education, we will equip you with the skills and foundational understanding to forge solid solutions to whatever problems you may be handed. You will become lifetime learners and early adopters, ready to become leaders in high demand for challenging careers.

If you are tech-savvy, creative, inquisitive, determined, and compassionate, we invite you to take a closer look at our degree programs and our cutting-edge research, conducted at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels. Allow yourself to be taught how to think outside of the box and to have the vision to see what does not yet exist.
