We are excited to announce that students can submit applications for the EPA's People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Program for the 2014-2015 school year.
The deadline for applications is TUESDAY, DECEMBER 17th, 11:59pm EASTERN TIME.
EPA offers annual research grants to U.S. colleges and universities to engage students in projects to solve our world's most serious environmental challenges. Through EPA's P3 Program, students work in teams to design sustainability solutions and compete for more funding to take their ideas from the lab to the real world.
In its 10th year, EPA's P3 program fosters team-based learning, interdisciplinary effort and class-to-real-world experience. Take this opportunity for the 2014-15 school year to excite your students about making a difference in the world today. Hear from past students about their experience with the program: Students Talk about EPA's P3 Program
Find the official Request for Applications and instructions on how to apply here: 11th Annual P3 Awards: A National Student Design Competition for Sustainability

Two undergraduate degree programs offered by NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences -- Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering -- have received reaccreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.
New York, N.Y. and Old Westbury, N.Y., October 16, 2013 – Two undergraduate degree programs offered by NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences—Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering—have received reaccreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, www.abet.org, a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.
ABET accredits over 3,100 programs at more than 670 colleges and universities in 24 countries. ABET provides specialized, programmatic accreditation that evaluates an individual program of study, rather than evaluating an institution as a whole. ABET accreditation, which is voluntary and achieved through a peer review process, provides assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards established by the profession for which the program prepares its students. ABET is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D., Dean of NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, participated in a panel with deans from three other universities focused on helping employers find the graduates for their hiring needs. Nearly 150 people were in attendance as the panel participants discussed the connections –and disconnections – between higher education and the Long Island business community.
Congressman Steve Israel (D-Huntington) announced that the New York Institute of Technology will receive $60,000 from the National Science Foundation’s Division for Undergraduate Education. This funding will be used to develop a multidisciplinary, multi-campus program minor in “energy, science, technology, and policy” through a unique regional partnership of public and private colleges.
