NYIT ASME places 4th in International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition

The NYIT American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) recently attended the annual International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE), which was held in San Diego, CA. Because of their impressive performance at the Student Professional Design Competition (SPDC) hosted by NYIT last spring, NYIT's ASME was invited to participate in the IMECE Student Design Competition against 23 other international colleges and universities, including Hong Kong Polytechnic Institute, WPI, the British University of Egypt, and Universidad de los Andes.

The ASME Student Design Competition is a platform for ASME Student Members to present their solutions to a range of design problems--from everyday household tasks to groundbreaking space exploration. Each team is required to design, construct, and operate a prototype meeting the requirements of annually determined problem statement. This year's challenge was to create a robot that could successfully operate in a simulated nuclear disaster. The competition consisted of a maze-like obstacle course representing a nuclear hazard area in which the robot had to complete a range of tasks in a set amount of time. The robot operators could drive only with the help of cameras, and had to be able to press buttons, pick up and drop off small objects, and read codes. Out of the 23 competing schools, NYIT placed 4th in the world for their performance on the course.

NSBE Members Attend Regional Conference, Win “Rising Star Award”

Members of NYIT’s NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers) chapter recently attended the NSBE Fall Regional Conference.  FRCs provide a forum for discussion and information exchange between collegiate, pre-college, alumni, and corporate representatives at the regional level. Within the three-day weekend, each region encourages academic excellence and professional development through various technical and cultural workshops, competitions, and career and graduate school fairs. FRC is NSBE’s largest regional gathering, with NSBE chapters from Cooper Union, NYU-Poly, City College of New York, and Columbia University in attendance. 
 
NYIT's Manhattan chapter of NSBE had the honor of receiving the organization's "Rising Star" Award at the event, which is given to a chapter based on its recent activities, community engagement, and potential for continuing their efforts into the future. The award was given by the Metro-Long Island Zone Executive Board. 
 
NYIT’s NSBE members were impressed with the event, and gained a lot of valuable knowledge, insight and connections in the world of Engineering in the Northeast. A graduating senior, Lysa Miles, said of the event, “the whole time I felt like family when interacting with NSBE members from other schools…I am proud to be a member.” Students attending the event had access to a wealth of information regarding how to ace job interviews, how to prepare for job fairs, and plenty of career advice from seasoned professionals in the black engineering community. One sophomore member, Oreo, said: “the workshops and seminars were great and the speakers spoke very well. Thanks to the conference, I feel more comfortable going to career fairs in the future. My only regret is not finding out about NSBE until now!”
 
NYIT’s NSBE members are looking forward to attending the National NSBE Conference in Nashville next semester—a great opportunity for new members to continue to learn and flourish at an even larger event!

NYIT’s IEEE chapter Participates in the XTREME 24-Hour Programming Challenge

IEEE held its annual XTREME 24-Hour Programming Challenge in October, and NYIT’s chapter of the organization participated, showing their physical and mental stamina in a competition against 2500 other top-engineering schools from around the world. NYIT’s team gave a respectable performance for their first 24 hour challenge—beating just over 50% of participants worldwide. NYIT’s team consisted of 6 students: Nick Passaro, Fabio Casagrande, Richard Mortimore, Pranav Krishnamurthy, Matt Wighton, and Christian Gulde.
 
The problems given to the team ranged from simple procedural tasks to very complex systems that required dynamic sets of input and events. NYIT’s IEEE members drew on their knowledge of many programming languages to solve problem after problem, and learned how to effectively collaborate as a team based on their individual talents. Nick Corso-Passaro, a Computer Science major and member of IEEE said, “software development, and programming in general, is an amazing skill and I think it should be practiced by anyone with even a remote interest in the field. The competition gives participants a wide range of challenges to solve with varying degrees of difficulty, a perfect way to test your skills and figure out what you still need to learn.”
 
The IEEE XTREME 24-Hour Programming Challenge proved to be an excellent opportunity to bring together NYIT’s IEEE members from across various disciplines. Christian Gulde, a graduate student in Computer Science gave some insight on how they managed to complete this amazing feat of marathon programming: “if you have to spend 24 hours on campus programming, this is the way to do it. Good friends, good music, and a fun atmosphere.” When asked if he would do it again, he replied, “At the drop of a hat!”

Members of NYIT’s Society of Women Engineers Reach Out to Local Middleschoolers

During the Fall 2013 semester, SWE members Michelle Messenger (also the club's president in Old Westbury) and Adrianna Maldonado initiated a new outreach program for 6th graders in the New York metropolitan area. Inspired by NYIT's partnership with Citizen Schools, Messenger and Maldonado volunteered weekly at the Renaissance School of the Arts in Harlem for a period of ten weeks, during which they taught a group of middleschoolers an apprenticeship course for robotics and programming. At the end of the 10 week program, the sixth-grade students were able to make their robots successfully complete a maze course using sensors.

On her decision to reach out to these students, Messenger said, "all middle school students have the potential to discover a love of learning that will inspire and prepare them to succeed in high school, college, the workforce and civic life, but without enough relevant learning activities and involved adults, too many kids are dropping out." She found her volunteer work fulfilling, and claimed, "the students' transformation and growth was incredible and amazing to watch."

Messenger and Maldonado have plans to continue their efforts into the Spring 2014 semester, when they will return to the Renaissance School of the Arts to teach Generation Technology. This new course will teach students the basics of electricity, and give them the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of electrical engineering.
