NYIT Dean Honored as One of the “Top 50 Most Influential Women in Business"

            Dean Nada Anid

Old Westbury, N.Y. (June 2, 2010) –
Nada Anid, Ph.D., dean of New York Institute of Technology’s (NYIT) School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, was honored on May 20, 2010, by Long Island Business News as one of the top 50 most influential women in business.

Dr. Anid, the first female dean of NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, has helped create a sense of community and pride in her students through alumni and public outreach, fundraising, research initiatives, global collaborations, and interdisciplinary activities. She is not only committed to providing undergraduate and graduate education that prepares students for advanced studies and the workplace, but also has initiated and developed many local, national, and international strategic relationships and partnerships to advance efforts in sustainability and cutting-edge engineering technologies.

Dr. Anid’s own research is in the fields of alternative energy, sustainability, biotechnology, water quality, and engineering education. She has contributed to NYIT’s global commitment to sustainability, and has travelled extensively to share her research and insights with others. Dr. Anid serves on the boards of several professional organizations, and holds leadership positions in the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the American Society for Engineering Education, and the New York Academy of Sciences, among others.  

“It is very important to link education and practice, and I always look for opportunities to enhance our students’ involvement in community projects and local businesses and help them gain exposure through partnerships with industry and the public sector. Part of the big picture is to enhance our regional economy and to keep our graduates in the area,” said Dr. Anid.

Dr. Anid received the Top 50 Most Influential Women in Business Award as recognition of her important role in Long Island’s economy. Honorees are selected by a panel of business leaders based on professional accomplishments, mentoring, and community involvement.

Prior to joining NYIT in March 2009, Dr. Anid was chair and graduate program director of the Chemical Engineering Department at Manhattan College in New York. She holds a Ph.D. in environmental engineering from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemical engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
