NYIT Receives $33,000 Grant to Help Long Island’s Workforce

Old Westbury, N.Y. (April 27, 2010) – New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) has received a $33,000 workforce training grant from the New York State Department of Labor.

The project will enable NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, in cooperation with NYIT’s Office of Extended Education and the Long Island Forum for Technology (LIFT), to retrain members of Long Island’s workforce by offering seminars and courses in sustainability, green careers, manufacturing, and engineering.

 “By helping professionals with years of experience in their respective fields, we are helping them advance their knowledge and careers by informing them about new practices and initiatives in energy, the environment, manufacturing, and engineering, and offering them significant support in utilizing these practices,” said Stanley Greenwald, PE, professor and chairperson of Environmental Technology at NYIT.

The grant supports three advanced courses that are open to all Long Island professionals interested in advancing their careers in specific areas. One, entitled “Women's Pathway Project into Green Careers,” is a unique program to encourage women with technical, scientific, and financial backgrounds to move forward into green industries and careers. The "Sustainable and Computer-Aided Manufacturing" course, available to those who want to gain hands-on knowledge of manufacturing, introduces the basics of automation and computer-aided manufacturing as they relate to sustainable manufacturing. In addition, the “Professional Engineering Review” course helps guide engineers in obtaining their Profession Engineer’s (PE) License by preparing them for the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination (FE).

For information on future programs, which are available for all Long Island professionals, contact Professor Greenwald at sgreenwa@nyit.edu.
