Perhaps our greatest strength is our extensive involvement with our students in our roles as teachers, project advisors, and academic advisors. Such involvement has been recognized formally in recent years by a number of teaching awards ranging from Engineering Teacher of the Year to New York State Professor of the Year.

Faculty supervision of student-centered laboratory and design projects includes the:

  • American Society of Mechanical Engineers design competition
  • Construction of an injection molding machine and an ultrasonic welding machine
  • Design and fabrication of testing devices for new materials
  • Development of an all-terrain vehicle entered in the national Baja SAE competition
