Cornell Tech

Technology-focused graduate campus of Cornell University, located on Roosevelt Island in New York City

Cornell Tech is a graduate campus of Cornell University, focused on the intersection of technology, business, law, and design. The current campus is located on Roosevelt Island in Manhattan, New York City and was dedicated on September 13, 2017.



Cornell Tech arose from an economic development initiative of Michael Bloomberg's mayoral administration in 2008. The initiative sought to attract another engineering school to the city in the hope that it would produce entrepreneurial engineers who would in turn start job-creating companies.





Seven bids were submitted for the competition, with the administration ultimately selecting Cornell/Technion's bid. As proposed, Cornell Tech would create 28,000 jobs, including 8,000 for academic staff. It would also be able to create 600 companies, leading to $23 billion in economic benefits and an additional $1.4 billion in taxes, during its first three decades of operation.

Cornell Tech began operations in 2012 at a temporary site, the New York City offices of Google at 111 Eighth Avenue in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, while a permanent campus was under construction. The Roosevelt Island campus's 5-acre (2.0 ha) first phase opened on September 13, 2017. By 2037, the full campus is expected to span 12 acres (4.9 ha).

Cornell Tech's academic environment encourages tight integration across disciplines, couples fundamental research with practice, and supports societal and commercial ventures alongside research and education. In addition to world-class academic work, a distinguishing characteristic of our research is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct societal and commercial impact of our research.



The Joan & Irwin Jacobs Technion- Cornell Institute embodies the academic partnership between the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology and Cornell University on the Cornell Tech campus.
