Getting the “Best” Graduates for Business

On Sept. 24, Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D., Dean of NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, participated in a panel with deans from three other universities focused on helping employers find the best graduates for their hiring needs.

Nearly 150 people were in attendance as the panel participants discussed the connections –and disconnections – between higher education and the Long Island business community. Other panel participants included Patricia Salkin, Dean, Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, Touro College; Dr. Yacov Shamash, Dean, College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Stony Brook University; and Dr. Patrick Socci, Dean, Frank Zarb School of Business, Hofstra University.

Each dean discussed their latest programs; Dean Anid highlighted NYIT’s Cyber Security programs and concentrations;  a new pilot program to help engineering undergraduates follow an entrepreneurship path to equip them for success in bringing their ideas to market; as well as the changing engineering landscape at NYIT through the transformative Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC).

Panelists agreed that despite great progress, more has to be done to bridge the gap between technology companies and students to supplement the knowledge and coursework needed to secure jobs once they graduate, and importantly, to attract and retain students on Long Island through internships, mentoring, and other related programs.    

The panel was sponsored by LISTnet (Long Island Software and Technology Network) and its Committee on Business Excellence Strategies and Trends (BEST).

Rep. Israel Announces Federal Grant for NYIT to Develop New Multidisciplinary Minor

Congressman Steve Israel (D-Huntington) announced that the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) will receive $60,000 from the National Science Foundation’s Division for Undergraduate Education. This funding will be used to develop a multidisciplinary, multi-campus program minor in “energy, science, technology, and policy” through a unique regional partnership of public and private colleges.

Rep. Israel said, “Undergraduate education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is essential for the future competitiveness of Long Island. This funding creates a program that incorporates several local universities and aims to educate traditionally underrepresented student populations in fields with tremendous growth potential. I commend NYIT on this thoughtful and innovative educational program that will give our young people the tools they need to succeed.”

Nada M. Anid, Dean of NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, said, “We want to thank the Congressman for supporting this initiative from its inception. He understands the need for Long Island to work collaboratively across its public and private academic institutions on energy and resiliency which will serve our students well when we establish readiness programs in preparation for future storms and power outages.”

The National Science Foundation’s funding is used to build research foundations, develop the U.S. workforce and broaden participation in these essential fields. The agency is the major source of federal funding for STEM education.

Keeping it Together with Shaun Mooney, School of Engineering and Computing Sciences Alumni

In 1984, Shaun Mooney (B.S. ’95, M.S. ’04) enlisted in the U.S. Marines out of a desire to emulate John Wayne. After serving a four-year tour, he was reactivated in 1991 to support U.S. troops during Operation: Desert Storm.

Today, Mooney is helping safeguard something that impacts every person with a smartphone, laptop, or other communications device in the entire northeast United States. As property manager for Colliers International, he oversees the energy management processes and operations at 60 Hudson Street in downtown Manhattan. Once known as the Western Union Building and home to that company’s vast underground telegraph network from 1930 to 1973, this fiber-optic anchorage houses the infrastructure that helps fuel the digital lines of communication among financial centers, government agencies, and individuals worldwide. More than 100 telecom companies are housed within the carrier hotel, including Level 3 Communications, Sirius Telecom, Verizon, Sprint, Global Crossing, and many other carriers. If the Internet had a home address in the Northeast, this would be the place.

“This is the biggest telecommunications hub in the entire world,” says Mooney. He estimates that the facilities at 60 Hudson process an estimated two billion text messages, emails, phone calls, and other communications per hour, an exponential increase over the two million messages sent daily during the Western Union days. Back then, pneumatic tubes connecting parts of New York City carried written messages inside capsules propelled by compressed air, traveling as fast as 35 miles per hour. (Text messaging, one could say, in its earliest days.)

The current telecommunications powerhouse at 60 Hudson is one of four in the United States, joining similar hubs in Chicago, Miami, and Los Angeles. “These four sites are really the core of the entire country,” Mooney says, referring to the digital communications backbone of the United States. “There are companies within a mile of Manhattan that have tried to re-create this but failed financially.”

Managing the building’s infrastructure and energy systems is a key component to ensuring that 60 Hudson runs smoothly. Mooney’s day-to-day operations include conducting energy and telecom audits, tenant relations, and managing capital projects for building modifications, security upgrades, and cooling tower and generator installations, among other tasks.
