JFOUND: Cruz-Brown, Maribel [MC2000] NYPA 3/21/14

NYPA Recognizes its Women in Engineering: Maribel Cruz-Brown

Throughout March, we’ll be posting a series of interviews with NYPA’s female engineers in honor of Women’s History Month. Today’s entry features a Q&A session with NYPA Economic Development & Energy Efficiency Program Manager Maribel Cruz-Brown.

1. How did you enter the engineering field? How did you decide on your specialty?

I really enjoyed Math and Science in high school and received a partial scholarship to attend Manhattan College. During my college search, I was informed that an Engineering Degree would serve me well if I wanted to enter into any other career choice later on. They were right.
Maribel Cruz-Brown

2. Did you have a female engineer as a mentor?

I had interned all through college but didn’t come across any other female engineers until my first job out of college with Syska Hennessy Group. My aunts and uncles went to great schools like NYU and Yale. They were amazing role models for me, and I have great female engineering role models here at NYPA.

3. What makes you proud to work at NYPA?

This organization thrives because of the contributions from entry level to executive management. Over the past 14 years, I have seen how reliable public power and energy efficiency upgrades have real, positive impacts on NY communities.

4. What things do you love most about engineering?

Most engineers say problem solving skills and I agree but it goes deeper than that. Engineering is a resolution to a need, it is an approach. I studied Mechanical Engineering so to me it’s all about gears, motors and turbines making things happen.

5. What project are you most proud of?

My first energy efficiency projects at NYPA have set the tone for my career here. I began my career with NYPA at NYC and Westchester schools, hospitals and precincts. They called on my engineering knowledge, street smarts and negotiating skills. I learned to maneuver through challenges with customers, public officials and contractors.

6. Did you face any obstacles in becoming an engineer?

I always had to balance school while working close to full time my entire college career. I’m currently earning my M.B.A, and I have two young sons – so life is a little busy at the moment.

7. What valuable lessons have you learned as your career as a female engineer has evolved?

Always be professional and mindful of your contributions and you will be successful. Not everyone we work with has been exposed to the diversity of the engineering world of today. I had a customer ask me if I had really gone to school for engineering, why I chose my nontraditional profession, where I had studied, etc. By the end of our meeting he was eager to proceed with the recommendations I had presented for his town.

8. What advice would you offer young women considering engineering as a profession?

I have been speaking to elementary and high school students for 10 years. My message is still the same. If she (or he) has a passion for math/science, want to work on projects that have local impact and is ready to put the time in then the engineering field is for them!

9. If you had to use one word to describe your opinion of the engineering profession, what would it be?

Symphony. A collaboration of instruments, players, working at different levels to create a beautiful product.

10. What is one thing about yourself that most people would find surprising?

Years ago I wanted to create and be the host of a Home Improvement Show demonstrating to women how to DIY.

What Is the Best Type of Feeder for My Application?
July 22, 2014 0

*** begin quote *** 

There are many types of feeders available today. The most widely used include rotary valves, vibratory trays/tubes, belts, and screw feeders. The type of feeder to be selected for a particular application is dependant upon several factors. First, it is essential to clearly define the application parameters. These include the feed rate range, accuracy requirements, temperature and/or pressure considerations, possible dimensional restraints, the type of system used to get the material to the feeder, and to what downstream equipment the feeder will discharge. Then, it is essential to define the characteristics of the material to be fed. Establishing these parameters will reduce the available feeder types that are applicable to your specific application.

I’m a Swedish guy which, about three years ago, decided to experience the college life in NYC. Since then, Manhattan College has been my home, running has been my addiction, and discovering this city has been my mission. I will spend most of this coming summer in New Delhi, India, where I will intern. The rest of it will be split between Sweden and NY. This is my side of life.

May 2, 2014 

The semester is coming to an end and finals week is approaching. Slowly but surely I can feel how people around me start freaking out about what is to come. Me myself, not so much. Yet, that is. I’m just happy that after this is over, I get to go back to Sweden. Before I get back, more than nine months will have passed since the last time I walked the streets which I once called home. I do miss it a lot. But I will only have three weeks to spend there before I’m off to New Delhi, India, where I will spend two months interning for an Indian corporation. Or that is if everything goes according to plan. Hopefully it does. I cannot wait for that adventure. After India; New York and Manhattan College will be waiting for me, I’ve got one last semester before I’m done with by Bachelor degree.

About

Once upon a time, a perfect little child was born in the small-town of Sala (once the capital of Sweden). His name was Mikael. Mikael grew and grew, and as he grew he found out that he had a talent to run really fast for a really long time. He then got an opportunity to attend a running high school in Sollentuna, a suburb of Stockholm. There in the foreign city, at an age of 16, he realized that there was a world beyond the streets he grew up on. Say whaaaaaaat?! He thought and pondered what to do with his life, and after four years he decided to buy a flight ticket to the jungle, the concrete jungle. While walking around this somewhat treeless jungle he saw a really nice concrete hut. He decided to move in. Nearby was a college, Manhattan College, which he decided to attend, and run for their Track & Field team. There he fell in love with the mondo tracks of Draddy Gymnasium, the green grass of the schools’ quad and the ancient books in club O’Malley.

Now, he only have on more semester at this wonderful college and then he’ll be kicked out into something called the job market. He does not know much about this so called job market, but apparently it is not all too nice to newcomers. Therefore Mikael will go to India over the summer for a preview of what is to come.

Here, you will be able to follow Mikael on his adventures, in New York, in Sweden, in India, or wherever else he goes.

Intern Spotlight: Brittany Maggio – Accounting Department
Posted On: 17th July 2014    By: Amelia Merritt   

Internship season is upon us once again; when college students around the country trade their sweatshirts for button downs and classrooms for cubicles. The Ad Council recently welcomed nine summer interns into the various departments of the company. To shed some light on what it is like to intern for the Ad Council, we will be featuring one intern each week on Adlibbing.

1. Where do you go to school and what are you studying?

I go to Manhattan College and I am majoring in Accounting.

2. Why did you decide to intern with the Ad Council?

I decided to intern at the Ad Council because it is not just about the numbers and the revenue, it is about making a difference in someone’s life.

3. What do you like most about interning at the Ad Council?

Everything! The people are so welcoming and friendly. I am learning so much. I can definitely use every bit of information I have learned throughout my career.

4. What is the social issue you are the most passionate about?

I am most passionate about the drunk driving issue. There have been multiple outbreaks from my home town where people lost their lives due to this.

5. What is one of your lesser-known talents?

I am great at doing other people’s hair and nails- but I can’t do my own!

JFOUND: O’Brien, John F. [MC1973] ABA’s Kutak Award

2014-Jul-19

http://www.nesl.edu/media/news.cfm?newsDetailID=4425

Dean O’Brien receives ABA’s Kutak Award

(Boston, 7/17/14) New England Law | Boston: The American Bar Association has honored New England Law | Boston Dean John F. O’Brien with the Robert J. Kutak Award, given annually to an individual who has contributed significantly toward increased cooperation among legal education, the practicing bar, and the judiciary.

The ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar and Kutak Rock LLP, a national law firm, established the award in 1984, and most recipients have been members of the Section and active participants in its work.

“For nearly three decades, Dean O’Brien has been a valued and influential leader both here at New England Law and nationally in the field of legal education,” said Martin C. Foster ’80, chairman of the Board of Trustees. “Building bridges among legal education, the profession, and the courts, he has helped break new ground and fostered stronger bonds within the legal community. On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the entire New England Law community, I congratulate Dean O’Brien on this well-deserved award.”

Dean O’Brien has been dean of New England Law since 1988 and has the longest continuous service at a single institution of any law school dean in the country. In 2012, he was named one of the most influential people in legal education in a nationwide survey conducted by the National Jurist.

A native of Staten Island, New York, Dean O’Brien received a B.A. in 1973 from Manhattan College; a J.D. in 1977 from New England Law, where he graduated first in his class; and an LL.M. in taxation in 1980 from Boston University School of Law. From 1977 to 1985, he was a senior attorney in the Office of the Chief Counsel of the Internal Revenue Service, heading the northeast region’s tax shelter program.
He joined the New England Law faculty in 1985, teaching Constitutional Law and Federal Income Taxation, and served as associate dean for two years before being named dean. Currently, he teaches Personal Income Tax and in the past has also taught Taxation of Business Entities and Legal Research and Writing. Under Dean O’Brien’s leadership, the law school achieved membership in the Association of American Law Schools.

Dean O’Brien has fostered collaboration among the bench, bar, and legal academy in many ways. New England Law is recognized nationally for attracting a broad range of distinguished visitors, including Chief Justice of the United States John G. Roberts, Jr., and Associate Justices Harry Blackmun, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Anthony M. Kennedy, Sandra Day O’Connor, Antonin Scalia, and Clarence Thomas; Dr. Hans Blix; Attorney General Janet Reno; and United States Senator John F. Kerry. Several of the justices have taught classes at New England Law.

Under his leadership, New England Law established and operates three centers that allow students to work with faculty to provide public service and collaborate with local bar associations and agencies. To promote connections between the bar and the academy, New England Law also sponsors memberships for its students in the Boston Bar Association.

New England Law was founded in 1908 to provide opportunities in law to women who were largely excluded from the profession at the time. Under Dean O’Brien’s leadership, the school has expanded its historic mission of providing opportunities to diverse populations and collaborates closely with the Boston Lawyers Group, which is dedicated to identifying, recruiting, and advancing attorneys of color. 

Dean O’Brien will be honored at a special reception during the ABA annual meeting in Boston in August.
