RIDGEFIELD, Conn., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Owl Computing Technologies, Inc., a network security and information solutions provider, is proud to announce a recent collaboration with the New York Institute of Technology to contribute equipment that will enhance learning in their engineering and computer sciences programs.
The New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) was founded in 1955 with the mission to provide career-oriented professional education, access to technological opportunities, and support for applications-oriented research that benefits the world. The donated equipment will enhance learning in the classroom by providing students the opportunity to receive hands-on experience using equipment that is prevalent within the industry, and by teaching aspects of network security that are difficult to conceptualize outside practical application.
The equipment will also facilitate research being conducted at NYIT. Potential applications for the donated equipment have a ranging utility, which includes electronic communication for surgically implanted devices, assisted living technologies, mobile device security, and healthcare information security.
"The School of Engineering and Computing Sciences at New York Institute of Technology is thrilled about its partnership with Owl Computing Technologies," says Dr. Nada Marie Anid, Dean of the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences. "We consider the donation a first step into infusing our curricula, research and classroom projects with advanced, industry-grade technology."
As part of a series of equipment donations, Owl provided NYIT the following resources: Small Form Factor products including the World's Smallest CDS 002DS, Owl Perimeter Defense Solution, in Single Purpose and Multi-Purpose configurations; and Oracle 5120 Servers to support the University infrastructure.
