Albert Scaglione, who after earning a mechanical engineering degree from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) changed careers and became one of the nation's most prominent art dealers, was honored last night by NJIT for his generous donations to the university. >>
Mun Choi, PhD, of Drexel University will discuss "New Observations of Droplet Combustion Behavior Under Microgravity Conditions" on Dec. 7, 11:30 a.m., Mechanical Engineering Center, Rm. 224. Contact: Edward Dreizin, 973-596-3327 or 973-596-5751; dreizin@njit.edu. >>
A group of 12 students from NJIT will travel to Troy, Ohio, this weekend to race against 140 universities in a four-day mini-Baja car competition, set for June 16-19. The students designed and built two mini-Baja cars, which look like one-seat dune buggies. But the competition is less about money than about engineering, team work, and the love of building a car from scratch. “You not only learn how to design a car, but you also learn how to manufacture the car from the design," said Jonathan King (at left), who graduated in May with a master's degree in mechanical engineering but has nonetheless stayed on his team. "That goes beyond theory and equations and is the real test of a good engineer.” >>
Joga Rao, PhD, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at NJIT, recently received the Newark College of Engineering (NCE) Excellence in Teaching Award, given annually to a professor whose teaching has had a life-long impact on students. Rao received the award during the NCE Awards Banquet held on April 8 at Newark Airport's Marriott Hotel. >>
Shawn Chester, a mechanical engineering major, has graduated from the Albert Dorman Honors College at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) with record of academic excellence and having done award-winning research. >>
