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

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."
– Dr. Ronald Pirich, Fellow, Northrop Grumman Corp.
"As a member of the NYIT Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology Program Industrial Advisory Board for many years, I have been impressed with the dedication of the faculty and their concern that the courses that they teach are relevant to industry and community needs."
– Jesse Taub, Independent Consultant
