Cornell NYC Tech campus mixes students, executives

A high-powered, high-tech graduate school meant to link research and the real world would feature company offices along with classrooms, under a newly released master plan.

Students walking to their apartments might encounter executives heading to a conference on Cornell NYC Tech‘s park-like campus on Roosevelt Island, according to a plan being submitted Monday for a city review.

“We’re really looking at the opportunity, here in the city, to develop a new level of graduate and research campus for the Information Age,” said the school’s dean, Dan Huttenlocher.
