Become the Next Technology Innovator
Join us at the Entrepreneurship Technology and Innovation Center (ETIC) and prepare yourself for a lifetime of success in tomorrow’s engineering and innovation workforce.
Real Experience Leads to Real Jobs
As a student working with ETIC’s top-level partner companies, you’ll leverage your skills and use state-of-the-art technologies to help businesses tackle real-life challenges breaking down barriers in advancing engineering, cybersecurity, technology, and science. Learn what it takes to become an innovator and an entrepreneur in a tech-minded global society, while also creating valuable networking connections.
You’ll also take part in exciting initiatives that inspire the next generation of science, technology, and engineering leaders through creative K-12 outreach programs.
Turn Your Ideas into Reality
Not only does ETIC provide you with the opportunity to work closely with technology and engineering companies on ongoing projects, you’ll also have the chance to create your own ideas and innovations.
You’ll have access to ETIC’s high-level facilities including labs dedicated to cybersecurity, energy and green technologies, and nanofabrication (to name just a few). You’ll have the chance to work with professional-grade equipment, such as arbitrary waveform generators, prototype printers, an atomic force microscope, and more.
In addition, motivated students with promising designs and ideas for startups are invited to participate in the Annual Long Island Regional NYS Business Plan Competition.
ETIC sponsors a number of challenges throughout the year, some of which are sponsored by industry leaders, such as Northrop Grumman, that allow you to work alone or on interdisciplinary teams to create tech-based solutions to societal issues.
For example, the Biomedical/Assistive Technologies Design Challenge at ETIC is open to all NYIT students, and encourages them to form multidisciplinary teams to problem-solve for people who can benefit from assistive technologies in their day-to-day life. Subject areas include Cognitive and Sensory Impairments, Job & Environmental Accommodation, and Emerging Technology, and winners can take home prize money.
