|Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers|| club || The Student Branch of the Insitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers of the New York Institute of Technology has a proud past. At its peak in Spring 1989, IEEE Metro was awarded the coveted Club of the semester and had a well circulated newsletter called The Buzz. Unfortunately the phenominal times did not last. Over time the Branch lost it's way. The downward spiral ended more than three years ago when the legacy ended.|
The Branch was inactive for approximately three years when a young Computer Science freshman Mr. Loren Tapia and his room mate Mr. Andrew Stoll were inspired to restart the Branch in late Spring 2003. Joined by Mr. Tajesh Patel, the team quickly sparked interest in the reviced Branch attracting some of the brightest minds of the Manhattan Campus of NYIT with with one purpose in mind. To return the Branch to its former role to guide it's members to become well skilled professionals in the field of technology. It was no longer know as IEEE Metro, but IEEE @ NYIT signifing its commitment to NYIT and its intension to remain a permanent part of the school. Recognising the influence of the branch, the Student Government Association established it's IT Committe comprising senior members of the IEEE @ NYIT.
In December of 2003, the IEEE @ NYIT completed the process of revitalization when it was officially re-registered as a club of NYIT. With a new Elecutive Committee and other sub-committee, the IEEE @ NYIT is now committed and well positioned to achieve it's goal of being a critical element to prepare it's members for their careers as well as improving technological awareness campus wide. The Branch has also relaunched it's newsletter expected in Fecruary 2004 under a new name, The Tech personifying our commitment to technology.
