New York Tech Partners with NASA

As part of a new agreement, NASA has contracted with New York Tech, through the College of Engineering and Computing Sciences’ Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC), to have ETIC student employees build unique technology prototypes based on existing NASA patents and create professional marketing materials that NASA can use in efforts to commercialize the technology.

According to an article from The BOX, New York Tech’s blog, “The purpose of this agreement is to provide an operational structure and framework for NASA to move various unrealized and undeveloped intellectual property further towards commercialization through prototyping and production services available at New York Tech’s Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center,” said Kris Romig, the commercialization services lead at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston.

Currently, seven New York Tech student employees are working to fulfill the terms of the contract with NASA, which runs through August 2022. Students pursuing computer science, mechanical engineering, and electrical and computer engineering degrees were selected to build the prototypes based on NASA patents, and two digital arts students will develop instructional and marketing videos to help present the products to investors.”

ETIC Director Michael Nizich, Ph.D. says in the article that the sky is the limit in terms of potential opportunities that this partnership may lead to.
