NYU Poly Building New Energy Department

The city’s top engineering school is building an energy department.

Brooklyn’s NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering is in the process of developing a new master’s degree program in energy engineering and policy.

“The sustainability of urban environments is of critical importance to all advanced and emerging societies,” said department chairman Richard Thorsen, 74, who is the mastermind behind the idea.

Thorsen, who is celebrating a half century on the faculty at Poly, hopes to have the program running by next September.
