NYIT Kicks Off Microsoft’s Imagine Cup Solve This Competition

Old Westbury, N.Y. (Jan. 27, 2011) – Microsoft is asking students to imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems for the 2011 Imagine Cup Solve This Competition. New York Institute of Technology's (NYIT) School of Engineering and Computing Sciences is hosting a workshop for students interested in participating in the competition on Tuesday, Feb. 1 at NYIT’s New York campuses.

The competition seeks innovative entries that address this year’s theme: to imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems. The competition is a way for students to get real-world experience and to understand the connections among people, information, and systems by developing ways to meet real global needs.

Andrew Parsons, academic developer evangelist with Microsoft, will lead the NYIT workshop, describing competition goals and guidelines to students at NYIT’s New York campuses. Open to students around the world, the competition takes one year, beginning with local, regional, and online competitions. Finalists will then go on to compete in the Imagine Cup Worldwide Finals in New York City on July 8, 2011. Parsons will also offer a faculty workshop and discuss interesting ways to connect students with Microsoft through other opportunities and competitions.

Workshops are open to all interested students and faculty.
