Associate Professor Jonathan Geisler, who contributed to the research, told the Times: “We had suspicions that they were echolocating but to really get down to a rough estimate of frequency, you really had to look in the inner ear in more detail and that’s where this project comes in.”

Guiliano Op-ed in Huffington Post

Jul 05, 2016

While the growth in green buildings is happening all around us, many are unaware of it. “Green affordability has arrived gradually over a few decades and been easy to miss,” writes NYIT President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D., in an op-ed in The Huffington Post.  
According to the U.S. Green Building Council, certified buildings use 25 percent less energy and 11 percent less water. Today, more people in the United States work in solar than either coal or oil and gas.  

Globally, by 2018, the companies that expect to have over 60 percent of their building projects green-certified will more than double from 18 to 37 percent. Much of the growth will occur in developing nations. Universities like NYIT help ensure that the local workforce is properly trained and educated to join the ranks of the energy management elite across all fields. 

And much more will derive from universities, which continue to lead the way.  “We must constantly spur dialog to help find solutions to pressing problems, and well as incubate new ideas and test them,” he says.

New York, a global capital that’s home to Wall Street, Broadway, and everything in between, is the promised land for many potential MBA students, according to an article on FIND MBA.
