Improving Value and Reducing the Environmental Footprint of Healthcare

May 25, 2021

Healthcare is responsible for nearly 10% of the US’s greenhouse gas footprint, and there’s a surprising number of things medical practitioners and administrators can do to reduce that footprint while maintaining quality care. Dr. Thiel (NYU Langone Health & NYU Tandon) is one of only a handful of researchers worldwide who is studying the footprint of medical practices. This talk will provide an overview of the emerging field of “clinical sustainability”.


Reflections on Race & Digital Platforms

May 12, 2021

What does race have to do, after all, with the reasons most decided to attend engineering school: to learn to develop useful software programs, design innovative biomedical devices, increase the sustainability of our energy systems, or contribute in some way to improving the planet?  Today's alumni lunch will consider the answer to this question in a lively conversation with Dr. King-Toler.


All for One World

A Discussion on Diversity in Climate Change Efforts

April 21, 2021

As acknowledgment and awareness of climate change reach new heights, we have seen the development of legislation and technology that answer the call to action to protect the environment. These new initiatives galvanize climate action efforts while deterring those which increase greenhouse gas emissions. How do we ensure that environmental justice communities have the means and opportunity to be involved in the shift towards a cleaner energy future? Join us and our distinguished panelists Dominique D. Dowd (Dunamis Clean Energy Partners), Daphany Rose Sanchez (Kinetic Communities) and Pat Sapinsley (NYU Future Labs) to get an idea of how we can make that happen! This event will be moderated by Deborah Alabi ’21 (AABE).

5G And Beyond: The Future of Wireless Communications

March 23, 2021

Join Thomas Marzetta, Distinguished Industry Professor and Director of NYU WIRELESS, for a conversation on the future of communications led by PAA board member Daniel O'Sullivan (TANDON ’78) of the MIT Enterprise Forum.

After years of hype about gigabit speeds, 5G finally became a reality in 2019. AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Qualcomm all now have some form of 5G service available in the United States. And you can buy 5G phones that can take advantage of faster speeds on those networks today. But while 3G made internet surfing possible on our smartphones, and 4G allowed us to stream video in real-time, what will this next generation of advanced communication technology give us? And when will the day arrive when we can affordably leverage these services in our everyday quest for increased productivity and content consumption?
