MetroTech's 1980's groundbreaking ceremonies for a 16-acre metropolitan technology cluster of corporate-academic revitalization marked the renaissance of downtown Brooklyn, and laid foundations for new facilities on Poly's Brooklyn campus. The brainchild of Poly's 8th president, George Bugliarello, MetroTech also heralded a new name for the school, Polytechnic University. In the ensuing decades, Polytechnic restored its oldest landmark building, Wunsch Hall, and built three new buildings: the CATT-Dibner Library Building; the Joseph J. & Violet J. Jacobs Academic Building; and, the Donald F. & Mildred Topp-Othmer Residence Hall. Today, Polytechnic University has a distinguished history of academic excellence in electrical engineering, polymer chemistry, aerospace and microwave engineering, and offers cutting-edge telecommunications, information science and technology management education. Beyond Brooklyn, Poly offers graduate programs in Long Island and Westchester, and Executive Degree Management programs in Manhattan's Financial District. Additional student exchange and study-abroad programs provide rewarding overseas opportunities in Europe, Asia, Israel, Latin America and Australia.
