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.
On November 15, 2011, the New York Institute of Technology's School of Engineering & Computing Sciences co-hosted the second the "Market Makers: The New Energy Efficient Building Toolkit. This is the second of the Market Makers two-part panels organized by the Sallan Foundation on "How Innovative Technologies, New Business Practices, and Growing Customer Demand Are Driving Energy Efficiency in NYC." The series consisted of two panels:
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
Summaries of these meetings are available here.
As a child, Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D., wanted to be a poet.
In an article in Long Island Business News, the dean of NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences described her penchant for reciting poetry in classrooms.
ABET, Inc., the accrediting body for engineering and technology issued reaccreditation for NYIT’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology, B.T. This program is constantly innovating, and will soon become a B.S. program.
Nada Anid, Ph.D., dean of the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, says the school is also planning on introducing new concentrations in power engineering and telecommunications technology.
Members of NYIT’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology Program Industrial Advisory Board added glowing comments about the program following its reaccreditation.
“It is highly rewarding to see the suggestions and recommendations of NYIT’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology Program Industrial Advisory Board put into practice, helping to steer the program toward one that reflects the talents and skill sets that our technology industries are looking for in engineering graduates.”
– Dave Mesecher, Engineering Fellow, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems
"The recent ABET accreditation of NYIT’s electrical and computer engineering technology program confirms the excellent efforts and vision that NYIT’s faculty and staff have made. They assure that NYIT meets the high quality standards established by the profession for which it prepares its students. We at Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems commend NYIT for their excellence and look forward to continuing to reach out to NYIT for future new employees and technical collaboration."
