TUES Project

Sponsored by the National Science Foundation's Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (TUES), the New York Institute of Technology's TUES program focuses on enhancing the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) curriculum by integrating applications of wireless technology. The main objective of this project is to create a connected scope and sequence of learning outcomes to improve the ECE curriculum for all undergraduate students with additional foci on women's roles in ECE. This is accomplished by integrating application-oriented wireless network projects related to healthcare applications into the curriculum in courses throughout the program. The NYIT TUES program started on October 1, 2011, will run for three consecutive years. This program is led by Dr. Tao Zhang, Associate Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer Science at NYIT's School of Engineering & Computing Sciences (SoECS).

The NYIT TUES project provides undergraduate students in ECE with hands-on opportunities to explore, design, and research wireless networks applications to monitoring and telemedicine, through collaboration between the SoECS and the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM). Students participate in problem-based bioengineering projects that integrate engineering principles with biology and medical applications. The PIs supervise implementing and testing in authentic testbeds and provide continuous feedback to support student learning, ensure instructional effectiveness, gauge student interest and maintain appropriate academic rigor.

The PIs have supervised five senior design projects starting in the Spring 2012, including:

  • "Sleep Apnea Monitoring and Alarm System"
  • "Wireless ECG Monitoring System"
  • "Real-time UV Monitoring System"
  • "Alcohol Detection System"
  • "Wireless Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Sensor Driver"

The senior design projects were demonstrated to incoming freshmen during Preview Day, Open House activities. This project contributes to recruitment of potential students, especially women, to Engineering and Computing Science fields. Recruitment and outreach activities raise the awareness of females in high schools and community colleges of how engineering and healthcare are related. The interdisciplinary connections of careers in either engineering or healthcare are demonstrated in collaboration with NYIT COM and Education programs, which traditionally attract large percentages of females.
