The School of Engineering and Computing Sciences hosted its first competition for high school students to showcase their science and technology projects. Eleven teams representing Brooklyn Tech High School, Commack High School, John F. Kennedy High School Plainview-Old Bethpage, Massapequa High School, and the Girl Scouts of Nassau County vied in this inaugural competition in Harry Schure Hall. Judges included industry representatives, alumni, NYIT faculty, and several students.
Three School of Engineering and Computing Sciences students were among those on two NYIT interdisciplinary teams that won Peoples’ Choice Awards at the New York State Business Plan Competition on April 26. Shreyas Rami, Xuanxin Li, and Ruijun Saperstein were on the winning teams that presented business plans for a water-bottle roofing system that can be used in disaster relief and an online interactive game to save endangered animals.
All students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend the senior design presentations by students in the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences. Projects will be presented from Monday, May 7 to Friday, May 18 on topics including robotics, technologies, nuclear and solar power, and much more. Check out the presentation schedule.

SoECS Final Project Schedule
On Dec. 8, the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences was awarded a $400,000 economic development grant from New York State -- it will consolidate and expand its ongoing industry-academic partnerships by creating a new Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC). The center will foster innovation and promote collaborations between industry, the academic community, professional organizations, and government.
NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences hosted “The New Energy Efficient Toolkit” on key drivers and market-based strategies to promote energy efficiency (EE) and high performance buildings.
The second panel discussion in the “Market Makers” series was hosted on Nov. 15 and sponsored by the Sallan Foundation and the New York City Accelerator for a Clean and Renewable Economy (NYC ACRE).
In her introductory remarks, Nancy Anderson, executive director of the Sallan Foundation, stressed that energy efficient measures enhance buildings’ operational resiliency and therefore improve their market value. Jonathan Bowles, executive director of the Center for an Urban Future, moderated the panel, which included Greg Hale from the Natural Resources Defense Council, Eric Friedman from Wilmer Hale, and Will Goodman from Jonathan Rose Companies.
The conversation touched on many issues including legal and market drivers to expand demand for energy efficiency projects.
Green Notes from Market Makers NYC Panel
NYIT School of Engineering & Computing Sciences co-hosted with the Sallan Foundation this second Market Makers panel to discuss how innovative technologies, new business practices and growing customer demand are driving energy efficiency in New York City The series consisted of two events: •Event 1: Developing & Deploying Energy Efficiency Technology in NYC, hosted by the New York Academy of Sciences as part of Climate Week NYºC 2011 •Event 2: The New Energy-Efficient Building Toolkit, hosted by the New York Institute of Technology
