Leadership and Service in Technology
Congratulations to Suresh Kumar, our 2017 LST Award Recipient!
The Leadership and Service in Technology Award is presented to an outstanding individual or company who best exemplifies leadership in the field of technology by demonstrating a commitment to development, innovation, research, and application. Each year, the award is presented at a reception, which is attended by industry professionals.
The event supports scholarship and key initiatives, and helps sustain the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University. It also helps to prepare the next generation of IT professionals.
The honoree this year was Suresh Kumar, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer at BNY Mellon. In addition, taking place at the event was the presentation of the Seidenberg NYC Innovator Award to Sara Chipps, CEO & Co-Founder, Jewelbots. The night also included an excellent student presentation by Niamh Fitzsimon (BA in Computer Science and Art).
Featured at the event were student projects that ranged from drones in elevators to applications designed using human-centered (UX) principles! The NYC Design Factory sent students to Finland to participate in Product Development Project (PDP) at Aalto Design Factory. Team Dragonfly, under the sponsorship of KONE, worked to create a drone that could use an elevator independently. Seidenberg students Monsoor Shaik, Eiman Ahmed and Danielle Ran displayed their work at the LST reception.
