Tuesday, June 12, 2018
Tony Howell’s office on the third floor of NJIT’s Campbell Hall is as much a retrospective of the past two decades of the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), of which he has been executive director since 1997, as it is a testament to the devotion of the man himself.

Dressed this day in a black button-down shirt with “NJIT Educational Opportunity Program” stitched in red, Howell is as always a staunch representative of the program — which...

NJIT Car Maven Takes on the American Solar Challenge, Then It's Off to Tesla
Friday, June 1, 2018
Jason Murzello’s fascination with cars began in a fairly typical way – with his own matchbox set – but then veered into technology by way of video games such as “Need for Speed,” which allow budding aficionados to tinker with performance by switching out not only tires, but suspensions and engines as well.

This summer, the 2018 electrical engineering graduate will begin working in a New Jersey Tesla dealership, where, as a technician, he will learn the...
