Students engaged in experimentation

Electrical Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a comprehensive program in electrical engineering which is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Students may choose electives in microelectronics, communications, signal processing, control, robotics, energy conversion, microwaves, electromagnetics and computer engineering.

Electrical engineering continues to be a growth program in the field of engineering due to a rapidly changing technological society and expanding industrial needs. The New Paltz program is designed to meet these needs generally and those of the Mid-Hudson Valley specifically.

The curriculum consists of a humanities and social sciences component, a pre-engineering phase (preengineering major code 516) and upper division engineering coursework (electrical engineering major code 517). Electrical engineering students must meet a modified General Education 2 requirement. This includes the pre-engineering courses in mathematics and science and the humanities/social science sequence. The pre-engineering and humanities/social sciences requirements are exactly the same for the electrical engineering and computer engineering programs.

Computer Engineering

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a comprehensive program in computer engineering which is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Students may choose electives in computer hardware, software engineering, computer and information engineering and communication and networking.

The computer revolution has changed the way in which we live, work and play. Computer engineers are at the heart of this rapid development. Career opportunities for computer engineering graduates continue to be plentiful. The New Paltz program is designed to meet these needs generally and those of the MidHudson Valley specifically.

The curriculum consists of a humanities and social sciences component, a pre-engineering phase (preengineering major code 516) and upper division engineering coursework (computer engineering major code 518). Computer engineering students must meet a modified General Education 2 requirement. This includes the pre-engineering courses in mathematics and science and the humanities/social science sequence. The pre-engineering and humanities/social science requirements are exactly the same for the electrical engineering and computer engineering programs.
