Engineering Hub

The School of Science & Engineering prides itself in offering opportunities for hands-on undergraduate research, supported by the kinds of modern research facilities found at large universities. It does so while preserving the high teaching standards typical of a small, liberal arts college. Each program description in this book provides examples of the wide variety of career paths, and graduate and professional programs, chosen by our students in recent years.

IN THE SCIENCES AND ENGINEERING, NEW KNOWLEDGE MUST BE APPLIED,
and new problems solved. Our strong ties with business and industry, coupled with opportunities for research, internships and cooperative education, provide our students with unparalleled experiences.

 

REAL WORLD LEARNING EXPERIENCE COMBINED WITH A SOLID FOUNDATION IN THE LIBERAL ARTS ENABLES OUR
STUDENTS TO GROW INTELLECTUALLY AND MEET THE CHALLENGE OF CONTINUALLY EVOLVING FIELDS.

 

THE ACADEMIC YEAR UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH EXPERIENCE (AYURE) PROGRAM PROVIDES FUNDS FOR RESEARCH AND SUPPLIES
TO STUDENTS INTERESTED IN DOING THEIR OWN RESEARCH.

Our math, science, and engineering programs are demanding. We maintain high standards in order to provide you with the best opportunities when you graduate. We do so in a supportive environment that gives you the help that you need to succeed.

 

There are four basic components of an undergraduate degree in the School of Science and Engineering: first, a strong grounding in core math and science subjects that forms the basis for a lifetime of learning in science and engineering fields; second, a focused education in the technical aspects of your field; third, a focus on the liberal arts that provides the communication skills, understanding of people and society, and global awareness needed to succeed in our increasingly complicated and interconnected world; and lastly, the many opportunities to apply your knowledge and skills on real-world projects.

 

 

 

 

 

THE MURIEL AND JACK SMOLEN OBSERVATORY

Located on the New Paltz campus, the observatory has attracted interest from students as well as members of the local community. More than 150 people of all ages attended the Observatory’s first recognition of “International Observe the Moon Night.”

 

THE JOHN R. KIRK PLANETARIUM

The Planetarium is an indoor domed theater that seats 44. The projection system was upgraded in 2013 with the installation of a fish-eye lens projector that can display digital simulations of the sky and mimic celestial motions. It allows the audience to see and zoom in on images of stars, constellations, planets, galaxies and other deep sky objects. It also allows the audience to view the sky as seen from different planets and moons, and has many other features.

 

RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES

Research experience improves students’ problem-solving and communication skills, both of which are necessary in all types of jobs. Additionally, it has been shown that research experience results in greater independence and self-confidence.
