Google will donate office space to the new applied science graduate school of the Technion and Cornell University and the Technion in New York, Google CEO Larry Page and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced on Monday.

The Internet titan will provide 22,000 square feet of office space in a temporary arrangement to help the school begin classes this fall.

The Cornell NYC Tech school was the winning bid in an initiative announced by Bloomberg 18 months ago - also at Google headquarters - to link the public and private sectors here.
