NYIT College of Engineering and Computing Sciences (CoECS) houses faculty members who are expert creative inventors and the entrepreneurial masterminds behind numerous commercial enterprises. Whether solving complex engineering problems or developing cutting-edge technologies, they are the driving force behind our research incubator, comprising a wide range of interdisciplinary initiatives.
Areas of Research
Bioengineering combines engineering and applied sciences, applying engineering principles of design and analytics to biological systems and biomedical technologies to provide accessible, tangible, and economically viable products, including assistive medical devices and technology.
Ongoing, high-profile hack attacks have highlighted the critical need for cybersecurity experts and the vulnerability of our personal and business data. NYIT has been advancing the field of cybersecurity for almost two decades, fostering technological innovation and promoting partnerships among industry leaders, academia, and government.
Enabling Technologies: Advanced Materials and Sensors
CoECS research faculty members focus on devising breakthrough discoveries in the areas of biodegradability, biocompatibility, energy efficiency, self-repairing, polymers, advanced materials, nanotechnology, fabrication, laser printing, and nanoscale sensors. These enabled technologies have paved the way for novel, multifunctional integrated sensor systems with unlimited market potential.
Mechanical Engineering: Aero propulsion, Mechatronics, and Mechanics
Mechanical engineering faculty members are actively involved in fundamental research on concepts and designs using modern applications built on a foundation of physical science, mathematics, computing, and technology. Focus areas include design and development of mechanical systems, structures, thermo-fluid systems, aero propulsion, mechatronics, mechanics, advanced transportation, and energy systems.
Urban Infrastructure: Smart Cities and Sustainability
CoECS is committed to addressing the myriad issues associated with the expansion of urban cities. According to the United Nations, approximately 55 percent of the world’s population live in urban areas or cities; a figure expected to rise to 68 percent over the coming decades. This growth will require the successful management of biodiversity and ecosystem services to ensure a resilient and sustainable future.
Our faculty members study various wireless technologies addressing all aspects of receiving and transmitting information over the wireless spectrum. Areas of research include the advanced design of circuits and subsystems from RF through Microwave to Millimeter-wave frequencies for 4G and 5G wireless communications and biomedical applications.
Student Research Opportunities
This 10-week summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program provides opportunities for motivated and talented undergraduate students to collaborate with our faculty and graduate students in research on methods of securing mobile devices and wireless networks using both software and hardware approaches.
