The Future of Polytechnic1
By Jerry MacArthur Hultin, President
Original release: March 2006
Our past and future
Polytechnic has a rich history. As the second oldest, private technical university, Polytechnic has not
only witnessed the industrialization of America, but provided many of the scientific and technological
leaders who forged gains of the 19th
and 20th
centuries. The accomplishments of Polytechnic were so
profound and the careers so robust that these stories require over 300 pages to be summarized in Poly's
history, Changing the World. We have graduated over 35,000 scientists and engineers, over 200 Poly
graduates are CEOs, five graduates are currently serving as university presidents, and three Nobel
Prize winners have been closely associated with Polytechnic.
Polytechnic's recent years are equally significant. We have built a vital campus with new academic,
athletic, and residential facilities; we have trimmed our expenses dramatically; we have invested in two
major workshops on our future; celebrated our 150 year history with style; welcomed the arrival of
new world-class faculty with more to come soon; appointed a new President, and branded our unique
style of education and research as "The Power of PolyThinking."
In this coming year, we will begin enrollments in our new undergraduate Integrated Digital Media
