Bio

Dr. Miguel A. Bustamante has a Ph.D from CUNY/Graduate Center in Electrical Engineering Remote Sensing. Prof. Bustamante’s research was the development and integration of geographically distributed sensor system for the study of atmospheric aerosols at The City College of New York. Aerosols or suspended particulates are of great importance because of their effect on the Earth’s climate and also on human health (air pollution). NASA and the City College (NOAA-CREST) group had constructed a radiometer sensor network to detect ground level solar radiance as a function of wavelength for the study of aerosols types and concentrations. The networked devices were deployed in New York Metropolitan area, both locally and regionally (up to 60 km). Each site collects data and relays it to a data server at CCNY which compiles, analyzes and archives the data from the site. Currently there are five active sites with plans to expand to twelve sites.

Prof. Bustamante also has eighteen years of teaching experience. He is currently teaching at The CityTech College as an adjunct assistant Professor in the Computer Engineering Technology Department. He has taught Electrical Circuit theory and Lab which serves as a foundation to understanding of DC circuits as their application to computer engineering technology. Digital Electronics theory and Lab, this course presents an introduction to the basic principles of digital electronics and their application to the field of computer engineering technology. Microcomputer interfacing this course is in electronic interfacing technologies and techniques course required to connect computers to internal and external systems and other computers and components for the purpose of acquiring and processing data. Control Feedback System Technology in computer engineering applications. Students learn to use control system to simulate system using MATLAB as programming interface. In the lab section of the control class, LabView is also used to implement, test and simulate system with the help of ELVIS interface as a data acquisition hardware. At TCI College he held the position of Chairperson of the Technology Department from 2002 through 2004. While at TCI College prof. Bustamante taught many courses from computer programming to network security and countermeasures, including microcomputers and digital logic. He Also held the position of Deputy Chair of the Industrial Electronics and Electronic Security System in the Division of Engineering and Information Technology.

Mechatronics Club

Mechatronics Club

City Tech’s Mechatronics Technology Center (MTC) was established in September 2010 and receives support from the National Science Foundation under the Advanced Technical Education program (ATE). It provides a multidisciplinary platform for students to learn the latest mecharonics/robotic technology and to gain experience through hands-on projects.
