Combining access and affordability with outstanding instruction and research, the Grove School of Engineering at The City College of New York (CCNY) plays a key role in developing a diverse workforce to meet the technological challenges facing today’s world. Named for Andrew S. Grove, ’60, a Hungarian immigrant who became one of the founders of Intel Corp., it is the only public school of engineering within New York City and one of the most diverse engineering schools in the nation.
The Grove School traces its roots to the earliest days of The City College, which was established in 1847 at The Free Academy. In 1853, a class in civil engineering became a requirement for all students. The City College School of Technology, which became the School of Engineering in 1962, was established in 1919.
Because of its academic excellence and the diversity of its students, Grove School graduates are highly sought after in the marketplace. Prominent corporations such as General Electric, IBM, Raytheon and Toyota, as well as leading agencies at the federal, state and local level regularly recruit from the Grove School.
