Anthony D. Rosato, PhD, a professor in the department of mechanical and industrial engineering at NJIT, will discuss "Modeling and Simulation in Granular Materials" at the 2010 NJEDge.Net  Conference on Nov. 17-19 in Plainsboro. >>
Music has many virtues — including the potential to benefit individuals whose mobility is severely impaired by cerebral palsy and spinal injuries. In the first of NJIT's new series of Technology and Society Forum presentations, Pauline Oliveros and colleagues from the Deep Listening Institute will demonstrate software that makes it possible to improvise music with slight head movements. This software extends the expressive, holistic and therapeutic benefits of musical improvisation to both adults and children. >>
In the first of a new series of Technology and Society Forum presentations, Pauline Oliveros, founder of the Deep Listening Institute Ltd.and Distinguished Research Professor of Music at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, will demonstrate software that makes it possible to improvise music with slight head movements. The presentation will take place on Sept. 20, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in the NJIT Campus Center Atrium.  >>
Anthony D. Rosato, PhD, a professor in the department of mechanical and industrial engineering at NJIT  has received a Fulbright Senior Research Award to study the dynamic behavior of systems composed of particles at the University of Salerno, in Fisciano, Italy.  He'll start the four-month program next May. >>

The class of 2013—with nearly 1,000 students—is the largest freshman class ever to enter NJIT.  The overall enrollment of nearly 9,000 students is second largest in university history. But it's not just class size that's impressive. There's been an 11 point rise in composite SAT scores to 1143. The national composite is 1016. >>
Anthony D. Rosato, PhD, a professor in the department of mechanical and industrial engineering at NJIT, was invited to give a presentation at the Joint IUTAM-ISIMM Symposium on Mathematical Modeling and Physical Instances of Granular Flows on Sept. 14-18 in Reggio Calabria, Italy. "Density Relaxation of Granular Matter via Monte Carlo and Discrete Element Simulations" is the title of his paper. >>

2007
An essay by Satyaki Sen, a student majoring in electrical engineering at NJIT, was critiqued by former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger at the 47th Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference (NAFAC). Hosted by the United States Naval Academy, NAFAC brings together an outstanding group of undergraduates to debate major issues of American foreign policy. Sen participated as a Metro International delegate at the conference, at which Kissinger delivered the keynote speech. >>

Less sunlight reaching the Earth's surface has not translated into cooler temperatures, according to a team of solar physicists at NJIT. The scientists have observed that the amount of light reflected by Earth has increased since 2000. “Our findings have significant implications for the study of climate change,” said Philip R. Goode, PhD, principal investigator and distinguished professor of physics at NJIT. >>
2005
A book by Norbert Elliot, PhD, a professor of English in the department of humanities at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) has reopened the debate about the value of the SAT's writing test.On A Scale: A Social History of Writing Assessment in America (Peter Lang, 2005) looks analytically at the test.  It couples observations about current test practices with beneficiaries of those practices. The book is the first historical study of its kind. >>
2004
Dr. Anthony D. Rosato, professor of Mechanical Engineering, was asked by Team Poland to recommend literature and other sources to assist them in solving the Brazil Nuts Effect problem, one of 17 that the high school students tackled at the 2004 International Young Physicists' Tournament held in Brisbane, Australia, from June 24 to July 1, 2004.  Among the 26 teams that represented 24 nations, Team Poland placed first. The Brazil Nuts phenomenon was coined by Dr. Rosato and his colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University in their Physical Review Letters paper published in 1987. >>
