Faculty Commons, A Center for Teaching, Learning, Scholarship and Service coordinates all professional development, grants and assessment activities of faculty at New York City College of Technology. Faculty Commons adopts a programmatic approach to professional development and operates as a faculty resource and think tank where members collaborate on a variety of projects to shape curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) helps faculty and administrators compete for and win grants that strengthen the intellectual climate and improve the learning environment at City Tech. The office provides notices of grant opportunities and works with faculty and administrators over the life-cycle of a grant – from concept development through close-out.
The Professional Activity Report and Self-Evaluation (PARSE) is the documentation of a faculty member’s accomplishments during each academic year and cumulatively, in the three principal areas of teaching, scholarly and professional growth, and service. The PARSE serves as the basis for the annual evaluation. It is also provides faculty with an instrument to present to departmental and college review committees for reappointment, tenure, and promotion.
The Physics Department and the Center for Theoretical Physics presents Top Quark and Higgs Boson at the LHC
May 11, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Speaker: Miguel C. N. Fiolhais, BMCC CUNY
Abstract: The recent discovery of a new scalar particle, compatible with the SM Higgs boson, by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN brought us the most important missing piece of the Standard Model. With the LHC operating at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, this is an exciting epoch for particle physics as the next decade will feature an unprecedented quest for new physics beyond the SM. In this talk, the role of precision measurements of the top quark and Higgs boson properties in the search for new anomalous physics contributions will be explored. In particular, the measurement of the W boson polarization in top quark decays and the production of a top quark pair in association with a Higgs boson will be presented in detail.
