Attention Student Entrepreneurs:  Do you have an exciting technology that works in the lab? Would you like help to start a company to commercialize it? Would you like to test your prototype in a real-world environment? >>
The increasing utility of applied mathematics in every branch of science and technology, and in daily life, was once again made clear at the Frontiers in Applied and Computational Mathematics (FACM) conference that convened on the NJIT campus in June. >>
Funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) associated to the new minor in nanotechnology at NJIT will support six undergraduate students in their research on nanotechnology. >>

George Hazelrigg, National Science Foundation (NSF) deputy director for the Division of Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation (CMMI), recently came to NJIT for a workshop on "The Engineer as a Decision Maker." >>
Uncontrolled landfills are a growing problem in the developing world, polluting groundwater and emitting foul odors, while also boosting greenhouse gas emissions. >>
The timing has been beautifully choreographed by nature. Rising spring temperatures prompt many bee species to begin their search for the flowering plants they depend on for food — and which they propagate through pollination. But what would happen if this vital, mutually beneficial relationship goes out of synch due to climate change? >>
The NJIT campus will be buzzing with undergraduate research teams this summer as students take advantage of the break from lectures and homework to focus on in-depth projects in fields ranging from the life sciences, to biomedical engineering, to mathematical computation.  >>
A substantial new grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) will enable NJIT researchers to delve more deeply into powerful, potentially destructive solar events. >>
Two NJIT engineers, a senior and an alumnus from the Class of 2013, have won National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships, generous three-year grants that allow them to focus intensively on research as they pursue doctoral degrees in graduate school. >>
The NJIT Faculty Council Standing Committee on Research will host a Pre-award and Grantsmanship Seminar on Jan. 30, from 11:30 am - 2:30 p.m. in Eberhardt Hall (Room 112).  The Office of Provost and Office of Research and Development are sponsors.  >>
A few days after Hurricane Sandy hit, NJIT Professor Michel Boufadel was awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to study the impact of the storm on the New Jersey shoreline.  The NSF Rapid Response Research Grant immediately allowed him to take a team of eight researchers to the beaches of Raritan Bay.  >>
NJIT Associate Professor Yuan-Nan Young has been awarded a three-year, $212,000 National Science Foundation grant to mathematically model how surfactants interact with the skin's lipid bi-layer.  A surfactant, also known as a wetting or surface-acting agent, breaks the surface tension of a liquid to create more contact with another substance.  Soap is the best-known surfactant. >>
The Fifth International Summer Research Symposium was held today at NJIT to encourage more than three dozen students studying at NJIT to seek post-baccalaureate education in science, engineering and technology fields.  >>
A three-day professional development workshop for high school teachers took place at NJIT on July 2, 3, and 5.  >>
NJIT Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering Kamalesh K. Sirkar was awarded a patent today for his water desalination technology.   >>
While pursuing a doctorate in information systems at NJIT, Elizabeth Avery Gomez, of Whippany, researched better ways to help emergency first responders—often volunteers from grassroots organizations—communicate more efficiently and effectively throughout a crisis.  >>
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the Department of Biomedical Engineering funding for creating an REU site. >>
The Newark College of Engineering (NCE) at NJIT has been selected by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to participate as one of 20 universities and colleges across the nation in a new five-year program to keep students enrolled in engineering programs.  >>
