Additional experts with vast experience in engineering and software design have joined the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences’ (SoECS) Dean’s Executive Advisory Board (D-EAB), whose mission is to help the School in preparing NYIT students for the technological and engineering challenges of the 21st century.
The Executive Board is comprised of prominent NYIT alumni and other industry leaders who serve as successful role models, willing to touch and enrich the lives of NYIT engineering students. Since its formation in 2010, the Board has been working to strengthen the SoECS’ academic offerings, help to grow and retain the engineering talent base in the New York metropolitan area, support faculty research projects, and expand NYIT’s industry-academic partnerships through the launch of a new Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC).
The newest members to join the D-EAB are: Mitchell Maiman, President of IPS, who has more than 30 years of experience in successful product development; Thomas Van Laan, an entrepreneur with over 30 years of experience in the area of engineering software who earned an M.B.A. degree from NYIT in 1984; and Connie Smallwood, vice president for Innovation and University Programs, and Mark Combs, distinguished senior vice president, both from CA Technologies.

As a student-centered university, we value the Board members' input and participation,” said Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D., Dean of SoECS. On an ongoing basis, the Board is committed to helping NYIT with its ETIC project and is pledging programmatic, technical, in-kind and equipment support, Anid added.
