The "Transforming Undergraduate Education in STEM" Workshop was held at NYIT Old Westbury campus on April 26, 2013, which was funded by the National Science Foundation: Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics grant for "Enhancing the Electrical and Computer Engineering Curriculum by Integrating Wireless Technology". The goal of the grant is to increase students' interest, especially females, in engineering careers by developing applications to use wireless technology in healthcare. In this workshop, all Long Island high school science teachers, faculty from local community colleges and universities, and faculty and students from NYIT were invited. The workshop addressed wireless technology in healthcare and ways to stimulate student interests in the STEM.

The workshop featured an interdisciplinary collaboration among NYIT faculty and students, fusing the fields of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Medicine, and Instructional Technology. In this workshop, a variety of wireless technology opportunities available that may equip students for innovative engineering careers were discussed.

The following topics were presented at the workshop:

  • An overview of NYIT's initiative to enhance the Electrical and Computer Engineering curriculum by integrating wireless technology
  • Explore wireless projects through hands-on experiences
  • Showcase exemplar student projects
  • Exchange ideas with participants on improving student experiences in STEM education
