Major in Engineering
The Division of Engineering Programs offers programs in Electrical, Computer (fully ABET accredited) and Mechanical Engineering (awaiting accreditation via first graduates), as well as a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering.
Our highly qualified and diverse Faculty, is committed to excellence in teaching. The majority of our faculty members are active in research in their own field of expertise and/or in engineering education.
Our Mission, Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes aim to the success of our graduates. Most of our graduates are able to obtain amazing engineering jobs and/or attain graduate degrees at prestigious universities.
The emphasis of education is in developing design skills through design project-based courses. Most upper division courses include a design project. The design experience culminates in a two-semester Senior Design Project, performed by student teams under faculty supervision. The best projects receive IEEE awards. All projects, as well as laboratory experiments and undergraduate research, are hosted by state-of-the-art laboratories.
A highly qualified Engineering Advisory Board (EAB) help us generate realistic, industry-based Senior Design Projects. They also increase the internship opportunities for our students.
Our Student Organizations are very active at mentoring students, networking with peers and alumni, and at outreaching to local schools.
On Wednesday, February 22, our WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) students met with the CEO of Central Hudson, Mike Mosher, and President Christian for a Presidential Roundtable. Pictured above from left to right are: Mike Mosher, CEO of Central Hudson, Serena Hazzard (Electrical Engineering), Kristen O'Sullivan (Mechanical Engineering), Claire Fox (Mechanical Engineering), Lori Jockers (Mechanical Engineering), SUNY New Paltz President Donald Christian and, at the front, Alicia Scott (Electrical Engineering).
