The School of Engineering and Computing Sciences

Energy Management, M.S.

The School of Engineering and Computing Sciences of NYIT offers a unique master's of science degree program in energy management, where students learn how to evaluate the energy sources of the future, help protect the environment, and optimize the performance of buildings.

This 36-credit degree program is designed to provide the up-to-date knowledge, which is required for success in the energy field. This interdisciplinary program integrates the technical and managerial skills, which are necessary to analyze and improve energy efficiency in commercial, residential, and industrial buildings.

Graduates of the program, as energy, facilities, and environmental managers, are employed by power producers, equipment manufacturers, energy service companies, and owners of buildings such as hospitals, universities, shopping centers, retail chains, and office complexes.


Environmental Technology, M.S.

NYIT 's School of Engineering and Computing Sciences offers a practice-oriented master's of science degree program in environmental technology, which prepares students to evaluate environmental impacts, comply with environmental regulations, and implement sustainable technologies.

This 36-credit degree program prepares students for successful careers in industry, consulting, and government service. Graduates of the program are equipped to respond to air quality, water quality, groundwater, and waste management issues.

Advanced electives are available in environmental law, pollution prevention, infrastructure security, and geographical information systems. Graduates of the program are employed in manufacturing, consulting, transportation, utilities, and government agencies.


Advanced Certificate in Facilities Management

The complexity of modern buildings has increased with the advent of sophisticated lighting systems, building controls, and air conditioning equipment. There are numerous career opportunities for facilities managers, who operate and maintain buildings and related infrastructure. Facilities managers need to be able to control costs, while maintaining high standards of safety, comfort, and performance. This 18-credit certificate includes coursework in power plant systems, energy-efficient lighting, and automated building energy control systems. 


Advanced Certificate in Environmental Management

Environmental protection has become a top priority for private industry, as well as the general public. Strict new regulations have created a need for managers with an understanding of environmental issues. Pollution prevention, waste minimization, and resource conservation have been shown to increase overall productivity, minimize costs, and preserve our environment. Environmental managers develop "green" product features, monitor compliance with regulations, and implement "clean" technologies, which produce energy with lower emissions. This 18-credit certificate includes coursework in environmental technology, waste management, and advanced transportation systems.


Advanced Certificate in Energy Technology

The current restructuring of the energy industry has created opportunities for decentralized, efficient power generation. Fuel cells, micro turbines, and photovoltaic arrays will enable companies to generate their own power, and sell surplus power through the utility grid.

Environmental mandates and rising fuel prices have inspired high-mileage, low-emission vehicles. Massive fleet conversion programs enable cities to meet their clean-air goals using natural gas-powered buses, taxis, and delivery vehicles. This 18-credit certificate includes coursework in renewable sources of energy, alternative fuels for vehicles, and independent power production.


Advanced Certificate in Infrastructure Security Management

Trained professionals are needed to identify security concerns and to develop effective response strategies to protect facilities and infrastructure. These individuals use advanced technology for fire protection, crime prevention, and environmental monitoring. This 18-credit certificate includes coursework in facilities management, contingency planning, security systems technology, and environmental risk assessment.
