April 16, 2014 - Owl Computing Technologies, Inc., a network security and information solutions provider, has recently announced that it will collaborate with NYIT to contribute equipment that will enhance learning in the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences' programs. The donated equipment will update SoECS classrooms by providing students the opportunity to receive hands-on experience with equipment that is prevalent within the industry. This hands-on experience will help students to understand aspects of network security that are otherwise difficult to conceptualize without practical application.
The donated equipment will also facilitiate research that is underway at NYIT. The new equipment has a ranging utility, which includes electronic communication for surgically implanted devices, assisted living technologies, mobile device security, and healthcare information security.
"The School of Engineering and Computing Sciences at New York Institute of Technology is thrilled about its partnership with Owl Computing Technologies," says Dr. Nada Anid, Dean of SoECS. "We consider the donation a first step into infusing our curricula, research, and classroom projects with advanced, industry-grade technology."
As part of a series of equipment donations, Owl provided NYIT the following resources: Small Form Factor products, including the world's smallest CDS 002DS, Owl Perimeter Defense Solution, in Single Purpose and Multi-Purpose configurations; and Oracle 5120 Servers to support the University infrastructure.
NYIT is excited to build a strong relationship with Owl, a collaboration which will aid in the cultivation of the next generation of technology leaders.
