SUNY Polytechnic Institute

Introduction

Established by the SUNY Board of Trustees on June 14, 1966, the State University of New York Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome (SUNYIT) is New York’s public institute of technology. Originally a graduate and upper-division institution, the college offered classes in temporary locations and at extension sites for several years until the first buildings were constructed on the permanent campus in Marcy, N.Y., in the 1980s.

SUNYIT students pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees in technology and professional studies on the SUNYIT campus - a high-tech learning environment on hundreds of acres minutes from NYS Thruway Exit 31, Utica. Our students come from all over New York, many other states, and more than 20 other nations; a growing number of students also take SUNYIT courses and, in some cases, entire degree programs online.

As part of a substantial expansion in campus infrastructure, a $13 million student center, a $20 million field house and a $23.5 million residence hall were completed in 2011-2012. The next major construction project planned is a technology complex including the Computer Chip Commercialization Center.

SUNYIT’s undergraduate degree majors/programs include: accounting, applied computing, applied mathematics, biology, business, civil engineering, civil engineering technology, communication & information design, community & behavioral health, computer engineering technology, computer & information science, computer information systems, electrical and computer engineering, electrical engineering technology, health information management, interdisciplinary studies, mechanical engineering technology, network and computer security, nursing, psychology, and sociology.

Graduate degree programs are: master of business administration in technology management; master of science degree programs in accountancy, computer & information science, information design & technology, network & computer security, and telecommunications; and master of science programs in nursing: family nurse practitioner and nursing education. Accelerated BS/MS options are available in computer science, nursing, CID/IDT, and NCS/telecommunications.

Apart from their excellent academic experience, SUNYIT students enjoy campus life in highly rated residence halls. The campus has three residential complexes: Oriskany Residence Hall for freshmen (completed in 2011), and Mohawk and Adirondack Residence Halls. SUNYIT’s NCAA Division III athletics (men’s and women’s basketball, cross country, lacrosse, soccer, and volleyball; men’s baseball; and women’s softball) and intramurals are complemented by entertainment, activities and community-building experiences that support and sustain a unique campus culture.

Through internships and close cooperation with employers, SUNYIT has extraordinarily high placement rates. More than 22,000 alumni pursue successful careers in communication, computer science, management, nursing, and many other fields.

Master of Science in Accountancy

 

The Master of Science in Accountancy degree program is a 33 semester hour program consisting of 11 courses that allow students to pursue their professional interests. This online program accommodates both full-time and part-time students.

 

The Master of Science in Accountancy program is registered to satisfy the 150 hour licensure requirement for New York State and developed in response to two demands. The first was the increasing number of accountants who held undergraduate degrees in accounting and wanted to continue developing in a wide range of professional accounting careers. These careers included public accounting, corporate accounting, not-for-profit accounting and government accounting. Additionally, in view of the 150 credit hour education requirement established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) starting in the year 2000, the program was developed to qualify students to sit for professional accounting examinations that lead to credentials such as the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and the CMA (Certified Management Accountant) designations....
