NYIT Wins Grant to Develop STEM Programs
Undergraduate student teams, of six members each, will be formed before the end of 2014. There are two possible options for a team: Option 1 is for teams to represent a single school of engineering or perhaps regional partnerships between schools. Option 2 is that a team consists of students from two or three countries (with at least 2 students from each country). We have a goal of 30 students representing each of the three countries (US, China, UK), for a total of 90 students, at the Summit in Beijing. Teams will propose and develop a business plan for a start-up based on an idea/concept related to the GCs. The 14 NAE Grand Challenges are outlined at http://www.engineeringchallenges.org/. They fall within the four categories of Sustainability, Security, Health, and Joy of Living. The plan for each team will be developed prior to the summit, starting in January 2015 and ending with the final competition held during Student Day in Beijing in front of a judging panel of entrepreneurs and innovators.
White House 3D-Printed Ornament Challenge! The Challenge, in partnership with the Smithsonian, invites makers, artists, designers, engineers, and anyone interested in 3D modeling and 3D printing to design a winter holiday-inspired ornament. Starting today and running until November 5, 2014, people can head over to Instructables to submit their design and for more details about the Challenge. A selection of the winning ornament designs will be 3D printed and displayed in the White House during the holiday season; featured on the Smithsonian’s state-of-the-art 3D data platform, 3d.si.edu; and will join a small collection of White House ornaments in the political history division of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

New York, NY (Sep. 27, 2014) — After 5 months of planning, the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) of New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) brought together various local chapters, high school students and NSBE alums under one roof on Saturday, September 27, 2014, for the annual Fall Zone Conference. “This is the first time that members can see what NSBE is about”, Jamiah Braithwaite, NSBE’s Manhattan President, said. “You get a feeling of a family that is welcoming to any newcomers.” Held in NYIT’s Auditorium on Broadway, more than 75 individuals from across the Metropolitan and Long Island area attended to participate in nine workshops throughout the day that covered: “Conflict Resolution,” “What is Cultural Responsibility?” and “Presidents Assemble!” a favorite of NSBE Old Westbury President, Don Jeudi. “It was a time to express chapter concerns and plan events where we can collaborate across various colleges and become more connected - and that is important to me,” Jeudi said. The conference gave aspiring engineers the opportunity to not only network, but helped cultivate skills to be successful in the workplace. “For all parties involved, it's guaranteed that you will meet someone new and learn something new; a person and a thing that is likely to last you much longer than just that day,” said NYIT student Omari Adams, President of the Zone Conference.

Dr. Nada Marie Anid, dean of the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences at NYIT, published her letter to the editor titled,”How to Succeed in College” in the September 18 edition of the New York Times. In her letter she gives the same three pieces of advice she gave to the entering Class of 2018: Always ask for help: overcome your shyness and pride. It’s O.K. if you don’t know — just ask, make friends: college is about the people you meet; that human experience is unequaled, be engaged: join a club, and if no club is to your liking, start a club. Prepare a budget and a list of activities. Make sure that you know where the career services office is located. Build your résumé.
