In celebration of National Engineers Week, Transit Wireless partnered with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering to host a technical workshop on February 22, 2017 to over 20+ undergraduate and graduate students majoring in mechanical and civil engineering. Two of Transit Wireless’ current Project Engineers Khaled Mohamed and Alban Mujaj—former NYU alumni—shared key insights about their career, a typical day on the job and discussed how their studies and coursework at NYU Tandon prepared them for their present day roles.
They also spoke in detail regarding the Transit Wireless underground subway project and explained the intricacies of the wireless network. Khaled and Alban praised their company for providing them with the support and confidence needed to take on responsibility from day one.
Founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) in 1951, EWeek (February 19-25, 2017) is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing the understanding and interest in engineering and technology careers.
EWeek has grown into a coalition of more than 70 engineering, educational, and cultural societies, and is celebrated by more than 50 corporations and government agencies. Dedicated to raising public awareness of engineers’ positive contributions in society, EWeek promotes the importance of a technical education among parents, teachers, and students. It motivates youth to pursue engineering careers in order to provide a diverse and vigorous engineering workforce. Each year, EWeek reaches thousands of schools, businesses, and community groups across the United States.
It is also a time for engineers to take an active role in raising awareness about the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills.
