Major in Engineering!
With degrees in electrical and computer engineering, all of our engineering programs are fully accredited by the Accrediting Board of Engineering & Technology (ABET). New Paltz also offers students the chance to earn both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical or computer engineering in just five years, as well as a five-year MS/MBA program. With a highly focused engineering education in a small setting with personal attention, our labs are taught by professors – not teaching assistants. In addition to internship opportunities, co-ops, and established relationships with industry partners, our engineering majors garner the cultural, social, and communication skills that only a liberal arts college can provide. Visit our alumni page to see some of the great companies at which our graduates are employed, as well as the prestigious graduate schools they have gone on to attend.

SUNY New Paltz electrical engineering graduate student Brian Fedish recently returned from a 9 week internship with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Albuquerque, NM. As part of the Directed Energy Scholarship program, Brian was able to continue his thesis research on numerical modeling of nonlinear optics with SUNY New Paltz electrical engineering Professor Mohammad R. Zunoubi in a world class research facility located at Kirtland Air Force base.
With the help of leading experts in the field of nonlinear optics like Dr. Erik Bochove, Brian was able to quickly further the research that had only begun the previous semester. "That was the best part of working at AFRL, being just a short walk from authorities in the field and having immediate access to all the research papers you could read."
Brian is continuing his work with Dr. Zunoubi this fall semester in New Paltz. When asked why he chose this particular area of research, he was quick to respond: "The challenge. There isn't any published research on the particular project we are working on. While the subject of nonlinear optics has been around for over 50 years, there's still a lot of work to be done before this particular field of research can be applied to create robust commercially available devices like high power fiber lasers."
