NYIT has a new Minor in Energy Science, Technology and Policy which enables students in all majors to develop “green skills” in their chosen field. Many employers are seeking to reduce their “carbon footprint” and promote cleaner, more efficient technologies which are less harmful to the environment.
The School of Engineering and Computing Sciences of NYIT, in partnership with the Long Island Alternative Energy Consortium (LIAEC), has been awarded a grant to establish a multidisciplinary, multi-campus minor. Students who enroll in the minor will benefit from partnerships between academic institutions, private industry, college and government laboratories, and legislative offices.
Key resources include the Energy and Green Technologies Laboratory at NYIT, which is one of three labs in the Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC). Projects at NYIT include solar carports, plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV), and the Long Island Carbon Footprint Project. Demonstration projects are underway at partner institutions such as Stony Brook University and Farmingdale State College which focus on smart grid technology, building automation, solar energy, small scale wind power, geothermal heat pumps, green data centers, and alternative fuel vehicles.
