NYIT Signs Agreement with INTEC

Toirac and Anid in INTEC library

NYIT has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Technological Institute of Santo Domingo (INTEC) to prepare to offer dual degree programs in industrial engineering and engineering management. In addition to these degrees, negotiations are ongoing to launch NYIT’s Master of Science in Information, Network, and Computer Security (INCS) at INTEC, with an anticipated start date of spring 2015.

Rahmat Shoureshi, Ph.D., NYIT’s provost and vice president for academic affairs, and Rolando M. Guzmán, Ph.D., rector of INTEC, signed the agreement. Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D., dean, NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, was present in the Dominican capital, saying, "This is the beginning of a strong academic partnership." The agreement includes academic and research exchanges, internships, and practicums.

Dean Anid participated in a student conference at INTEC prior to the MoU signing ceremony, and she expressed her satisfaction with INTEC’s students’ fluency in the English language. She noted that the students’ language skills will facilitate the development of all the programs covered by the agreement.

The signing ceremony was attended by INTEC’s vice president for research and partnerships, Indhira de Jesus; Luis Toirac, career coordinator for industrial engineering; and Patricia Portela, executive director of development and institutional relations, among other INTEC representatives.

After the ceremony, Professor Toirac led Dean Anid on a tour of INTEC’s campus, including a visit to the Emilio Rodríguez Demorizi Library and the Haas Technical Center. The latter is a laboratory created in partnership with Penn State University that includes advanced equipment for manufacturing industrial machinery parts.

INTEC is one of nine academic partners in an interdisciplinary project led jointly by NYIT and Illinois Institute of Technology: Pathways to Cleaner Production in the Americas. Besides the U.S. and the Dominican Republic, the project includes institutions in Costa Rica, Peru, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Guatemala.
