Student Michelle Messenger wins Engineering Essay Contest

"This school definitely encourages women to enter the engineering field, and makes them feel like they can be whomever they choose in a male-dominated world," says School of Engineering and Computing Sciences Dean Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D. in The Island Now, Anid's remarks accompany an interview with NYIT freshman Michelle Messenger, winner of an annual contest designed to recognize women studying engineering or computer science. Messenger hops to work on devices that will help people walk or see again. "Plenty of engineers create impressive robots or complicated progams," says Messenger, "but my goal is to help people who are struggling."
