Kamil Agi to serve as 2019 spring Bishoff-Entrepreneur-in-Residence

3/15/19

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Kamil Agi, president and CEO of SensorComm Technologies, Inc., will bring more than 20 years of experience in advanced technology solutions for law enforcement, firefighters and military to Penn State as the spring 2019 Bishoff Entrepreneur-in-Residence.

The Bishoff Entrepreneur-in-Residence program was established in 2003 for the School of Engineering Design, Technology, and Professional Programs' Engineering Entrepreneurship program. It brings successful entrepreneurs with backgrounds in engineering, design, business or manufacturing to the University Park campus for seminars, workshops and conversation with students, faculty and staff.

From March 19 – 21, Agi will meet with students, faculty and staff in the College of Engineering to discuss his experiences as an entrepreneur. He will hold discussion with students from ENGR 407: Technology-Based Entrepreneurship, ENGR 310: Entrepreneurial Leadership, ENGR 411: Entrepreneurship Business Basics and ENGR 415: Technology Launch for Entrepreneurs.

As president and CEO of SensorComm Technologies, Inc., Agi led the development of Wi-NOx™, a real-time, Internet of things-based NOx emission monitoring system that is installed on vehicle tailpipes. The technology helps to identify vehicle pollutants and promote best practices for sustainability. He is also president and CEO of K&A Wireless, LLC, a company known for developing technologies for the automotive and first responder spaces.

Frank Koe, teaching professor of engineering entrepreneurship, first met Agi through their work as consultants on “International Innovation and Entrepreneurship,” a presentation given to the Russian Union of Industrialist and Entrepreneurs. They reconnected through the Global Innovation Network of Entrepreneurship and Technology and as presenters at the recent World Engineering Education Forum and global Engineering Deans Council, sponsored by the University of New Mexico.

Koe believes Agi is an ideal Bishoff Entrepreneur-in-Residence due to his extensive entrepreneurial experience in solving pollution problems – a current hot topic.

“[He] has an aggressive approach towards solving a significant part of the world’s pollution problem through research and the development of a highly advanced NOx sensor,” he said.  

Agi received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of New Mexico, his MBA from the Berkeley-Columbia Executive MBA program and both his Master of Science and Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from NYU-Poly, now known as NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
