Electrical & Computer Engineering
The ECE program comprises two areas of study: liberal arts, math, science and engineering coursework; and studies in electrical engineering and computer engineering. Graduates will have a solid foundation in mathematics, physical sciences, humanities and social sciences and the fundamentals of engineering design and analysis; the technical knowledge and critical thinking skills required for the professional practice of electrical and computer engineering, and for seeking advanced degrees; and the development of communication skills, teamwork, lifelong learning, and understanding of professional, ethical and social responsibility within a global context.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering program is currently seeking ABET accreditation. Until the program is accredited, graduates are not eligible to receive maximum education/experience credits as a "professional engineering program" towards New York State licensure in professional engineering. ABET does not allow programs to apply for accreditation until they have graduated at least one student. ABET does allow the accreditation to cover students who graduated in the year before the accreditation is granted. See www.abet.org/new-to-accreditation for more information about ABET accreditation.
