Polytech Renaissance | The Rise of the Polytechnic University

James Martin and James E. Samelson are authors of The Sustainable University (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2012). Martin is a professor of English at Mount Ida College (Mass.) and Samels is president and CEO of The Education Alliance.

In this brief piece from University Business magazine, they synopsize the history and future of polytechnicss, using some rising stars to make their point about "the quiet renaissance occurring at institutions where the captains of engineering innovation are educated in the new global economy."

What would Galileo think about Google Earth? Would Michelangelo’s art have different hues of the pallet which digital animation offers today? What would Shakespeare think of downloading his plays on his iPad? Though the tools may be different in this modernized world, the need for rapid development of discovery research has become the new imperative of planet earth. ...

In the U.S, new emergent polytechnic models abound—top flight schools like California Polytechnic State University (CalPoly), University of Wisconsin-Stout, Florida Polytechnic University (FPU), Vermont Technical College, and State University of New York Institute of Technology (SUNYIT). ...

In the new world of Wikipedia, “polytechnic” denotes several mission complementary institutional missions centered on science and technology. Hopefully, public higher education leaders and policymakers will promote the future growth and development of polytechnics, so that tomorrow’s graduates are equipped with the scientific skills and the technical knowledge required for success in the 21st century. In the academic year ahead, watch for the rise of a new polytechnic university where you are.
