Imagine beaming electric power from space as a viable solar energy option. Engineer and researcher Martin Hoffert, professor emeritus and former chair of the department of applied science at New York University, will discuss this theory further in a free lecture, open to the public, on Nov. 4, 2009 at NJIT, from 3-4:30 p.m. in the NJIT Campus Center Atrium. >>
Salman Naqvi, of Kearny, a junior studying electrical engineering at NJIT, was named a prestigious Goldwater Scholar earlier this week by the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program.  >>

"The issues of climate change are very complicated,” said Philip Goode, PhD, to an audience of more than 200 faculty, staff, students and guests on April 6, 2005 in the NJIT Campus Center. Goode, a distinguished professor of physics at NJIT and director of the Big Bear Solar Observatory in California, shared highlights from his research on the correlation between climate changes on earth and changes in the sun's output, earth's reflectivity and greenhouse gases. "The models are impressive, but appreciable climate factors are not accounted for in models, so their predictions of the future are not precise,” he said. “We cannot postdict the past.”  >>
The world's oceans, and mathematics, have a lot to say to Eliza Michalopoulou, PhD,  associate professor in the department of mathematics at NJIT. Her work illustrates another of the many ways in which mathematics defends the nation. As a mathematician, Michalopoulou devises algorithms to help U.S. Navy engineers detect submarines in shallow water.  From her underwater (also known as acoustical) research, Michalopoulou can determine the location of submarines and whales, the earth's changing climate, even environmental contamination. >>
