The Division of Engineering Programs offers high-quality undergraduate programs in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering, all of which are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. We also offer a minor in Engineering and an accelerated program through which students may earn a bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering and a master's degree in Electrical Engineering in five years. For more information about the accelerated BS/MS program, please refer to the Graduate Catalog.

SUNY New Paltz's engineering programs are designed to meet the needs of a rapidly changing technological society. Each program includes a broad General Education experience, foundation coursework to ensure fundamental knowledge of mathematics and natural science, a core curriculum through which students develop and refine discipline-specific knowledge and skills, and elective courses that provide opportunities for applying knowledge and using the tools and techniques of modern engineering practice. Our students benefit from quality facilities, small classes and labs, close interaction with faculty with real-world experience, and opportunities for research and internships with industry partners. Students acquire the cultural, social, and communication skills that only a liberal arts college can provide and graduate fully prepared for the engineering profession of today and tomorrow.

Departmental Academic Policies

  • Students may not enroll in any engineering course unless all prerequisites have been met with a grade of C- or better.
  • Students must earn a grade of C- or better in any course that is used to satisfy engineering major requirements. (See Major: Mechanical Engineering for limited exceptions to this minimum grade requirement.)
  • Except for Fieldwork (EGC/EGE/EGM494), courses taken on a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis cannot be applied toward engineering major requirements.
  • Non-engineering students may not enroll in engineering or engineering-related courses other than Introduction to Engineering Science (EGG101) and Technical Communication (EGG321). Exceptions are frequently granted for Circuit Analysis (EGE200), Circuits Laboratory (EGE201), Digital Logic Fundamentals (EGC220), and Digital Logic Laboratory (EGC221). Permission to register in any of these courses1 must be obtained from the Division of Engineering Programs prior to registration.
  • Admission of transfer students is based on transcript review, detailed comparison with SUNY New Paltz foundation requirements, and consultation with an advisor from the Division of Engineering Programs. SUNY publishes additional information for transfer students, along with designated Transfer Paths for engineering and other academic programs.

1Permission is not required for Computer Science students to register for EGC220 Digital Logic Fundamentals and EGC221 Digital Logic Laboratory.

Please note:  Our program is designed to be completed in four (4) years if students begin the math sequence with Calculus I.
