SOMERSET, N.J., December 13, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Staffing firm Rangam hosted the New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Undergraduate Research and Innovation (URI) Student Expo 2017 at its Somerset office last week. Over 20 of NJIT's brightest young students showcased their innovative work in the form of new ideas, products, designs, and services. The event was well received by socially responsible business leaders from a variety of sectors.
Dr. Atam P. Dhawan, Senior Vice Provost for Research at NJIT; Brian Kiernan, Chair at NJIT Undergraduate Research External Advisory Board; Govi Rao, Co-Chair at NJIT Undergraduate Research External Advisory Board; Dr. James Stephenson, Advisory Board Member and sponsor of the NJIT TechQuest Innovation Competition; and Manish Patel, NJIT alumnus and Advisory Board Member, were among the dignitaries present at the event.
“It is an incredible experience to see undergraduate students developing bold and innovative approaches to address market needs of high societal impact. They even redefine the issues with creative technological solutions causing us to think differently. From their projects and highly professional presentations, one can clearly see the making of future game-changing leaders,” said Dr. Dhawan.It was incredible to see NJIT undergraduates getting the opportunity to work on groundbreaking solutions and share their knowledge on some of the latest innovations. It was also great to see the passion and drive of the students presenting their research and discoveries on exciting projects which can revolutionize the world.
“I believe in what these students are doing. It was a great evening,” said Kiernan.
“I just want to say how impressed I am with all of the projects and can’t wait until the next workshop to see the progress,” Dr. Stephenson said.
“I am always inspired by what I see at the showcase. The diversity of the projects from bio med and solar cars to architecture and design really exemplified the power of the university,” Patel said as he urged everyone to donate for the continual development of the URI programs.
