NYIT Commits to NAE/White House Grand Challenge

Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D., dean of NYIT's School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, met with members of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy today as part of the unveiling of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Grand Challenge Scholars program. As one of 122 schools in the United States participating in the new initiative, NYIT has committed to working toward a goal of graduating 20 students per year through the Grand Challenge Scholars or similar program. NYIT's formal commitment was made via a letter presented on March 23 to President Obama from Dean Anid. NYIT is one of two colleges on Long Island and one of four in New York State participating in the initiative, which empowers students to tackle some of the most important challenges of the 21st century.

With a vision of "engineering for society: innovating for a better world," NYIT is enhancing existing programs with innovation in curriculum and facilities--most recently, via the newly unveiled Empire State Development and U.S. Department of Commerce-funded Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC). In the center, students will work in close collaboration with industry, the academic community, professional organizations, and government, and will benefit from:

• Cross-cultural perspectives through NYIT’s campuses in Nanjing, Abu Dhabi and Vancouver, and participation in the upcoming NAE Grand Challenge Summit Student Day competition in Beijing, jointly organized with the Chinese (CAE) and Royal (RAE) Academies of Engineering.

• "Turning Ideas into Companies" coursework to help students bring inventions to market.

• Social consciousness through service-learning and real-world projects.

NYIT Cradle of Aviation Design Competition

Students from the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, and the School of Architecture and Design, are participating in a Design Competition, sponsored by the Cradle of Aviation Museum. 

Teams of students are competing to design a new Aerospace and Technology Training Center adjacent to the current Cradle of Aviation Museum facility in Garden City, NY. This Center will house new educational programs and an aerospace restoration center for unique, antique and historic aircraft and spacecraft. 

The Cradle of Aviation Museum is located in Nassau County, not far from the NYIT Old Westbury Campus. The museum is a valuable resource to the community due to its unique location and programs. In a typical year, about 250,000 people visit the museum. 

The new Aerospace and Technology Training Center will provide state-of-the-art equipment for the restoration of full size aircraft. The new building will also contain classrooms and computer labs for training programs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). 

Six teams presented preliminary designs before a panel of judges at the museum on February 14, 2015. The competition will result in a presentation of the final winning design at the end of the Spring 2015 semester. Prof. Robert Cody, AIA LEED AP, Chair of the Old Westbury Architecture Department, is the Architecture Faculty Advisor. 

"This is a great way for students to get involved in a real-world project, work with a high-profile client, and meet professionals who are currently in the field. They will gain valuable experience which will help them in their careers after they graduate from NYIT," according to Dr. Robert N. Amundsen, Director of the M.S. in Energy Management program, who is the Engineering Faculty Advisor.

NYIT and IBM co-host “Building Tomorrow’s IBM Enterprise Systems Experts.”

On Jan. 20, 2015, NYIT's School of Engineering and Computing Science (SoECS) and IBM co-hosted the“Building Tomorrow’s IBM Enterprise Systems Experts” roundtable. Several IBM clients using the company's enterprise systems attended the meeting, including ADP, Citibank, Icon Communications Dynamics, Verisk, and Vicom Infinity, among others.

The goal of the roundtable was to discuss how to develop the next generation of information technology leaders by leveraging the newly added “Big Data Management and Analytics” concentration to the undergraduate computer science program at NYIT.  Industry representatives provided feedback on the skills they require to run IBM enterprise systems and various job opportunities for graduates of NYIT’s program.  

This event strengthens the school’s three-year partnership with IBM. This industry-academic collaboration offers students and faculty members a number of joint opportunities, including the new program in enterprise engineering, launched in 2014.  Graduates of NYIT’s new program will have analytical and detail-oriented skills necessary to succeed in the ever-evolving technology market, and have access to new job opportunities.

IBM’s recent announcement about the launch of the new z13 mainframe system—with embedded analytics providing real-time transaction insights 17 times faster than compared competitive systems at a fraction of the cost—indicates that demand for enterprise skills will continue to grow in the coming decades. The z13 mainframe system can process 2.5 billion transactions per day in a secure environment, making possible real-time encryption on all mobile transactions at scale.

School of Engineering Faculty and Students Earn Patents and Prizes

Fall 2014 was a busy and successful season for NYIT School of Engineering and Computing Sciences faculty and students. Two faculty members were awarded patents while a student team won first place at a national IEEE conference on cybersecurity. “We are extremely proud that research conducted by members of our school have garnered national attention, and that NYIT’s expertise is poised to advance the impending needs of the cybersecurity industry,” said Nada Anid, dean of the NYIT School of Engineering and Computing Sciences.

Patents were awarded by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to:
•    Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering N. Sertac Artan, Ph.D., for “Detecting Whether an Arbitrary-length Bit String Input Matches One of a Plurality of Known Arbitrary-length Bit Strings Using a Hierarchical Data Structure."  The work focuses on Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), a technology used by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and intrusion detection system, firewall and antivirus vendors to detect malicious traffic such as viruses and worms before they can infect computers and other Internet-connected devices. “Our invention enables the compression of a large amount of attack definitions in a single chip, while boosting the amount of traffic that can be inspected at a given time, thus offering an efficient and cost-effective solution,” notes Artan. “The invention can be an add-on to high-speed switches and routers, as well as network security appliances.”
•    Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Ziqian (Cecilia) Dong, Ph.D., for “Replicating and Switching Multicast Internet Packets in Routers using Crosspoint Memory Shared by Output Ports.” Earlier in the year (March 18), she was awarded a patent for “Forwarding Cells of Partitioned Data Through a Three-Stage Clos-Network Packet Switch with Memory at each Stage.” The most recent patent aims to reduce memory amount in switches and routers to support multicast traffic by introducing a new switch architecture that shares buffers by output ports. Said Dong: “This could result in significantly reducing the cost of high-speed network switches and routers.”

On Nov. 12, meanwhile, graduate engineering students Yu (Grace) Wan and Wenjie (Jay) Zhuang won the first prize for their poster presentation "Detecting and Locating Man-in-the-Middle Attacks in Fixed Wireless Networks" at the IEEE Conference on Information Security/Cyber Security and Privacy held in Piscataway, N.J.
