In the fall of 2007, NYIT opened its American-style Nanjing campus in collaboration with Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications (NUPT). NYIT was among the first universities to receive approval from the Ministry of Education to operate foreign degree programs in China.

Four academic undergraduate degree programs are held in a state-of-the-art facility: business administration, communication arts, electrical and computer engineering, and computer science. NYIT-Nanjing students have access to NUPT residence halls, dining facilities, and activities.

All programs are taught in English by NYIT professors; the curriculum mirrors that of NYIT's programs in the United States.
