Angelo Lampousis, lecturer in City College of New York’s Division of Science, is the recipient of a $70,000 grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to support standards education in undergraduate and graduate curricula.

City College is one of five universities out of 49 applicants chosen to develop standards curricula. The other recipients are Drexel University, Purdue University, Rochester Institute of Technology and University of Michigan.

“It’s going to take 18 months, and at the end of the process there will be material which can be adapted and replicated by other four-year institutions or any other educational entity that have an interest in this,” said Lampousis about the development of teaching materials for integration into four City College courses.
