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 an accelerated program through which students may earn a bachelor's degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering and a master's degree in Electrical Engineering in five years. Our goal is to provide students with a solid knowledge of math, science and engineering concepts and the ability to apply them to engineering problems.The flexibility of the engineering curricula serves full- and part-time students, traditional and non-traditional students, and students new to engineering as well as those who have some experience in technical areas.

Computer, electrical and mechanical engineering continue to be growth areas due to rapidly changing technologies and expanding industrial needs. New Paltz's programs are designed to meet these needs, both generally and within the Mid-Hudson Valley, specifically. Each program includes a General Education experience, foundation coursework in math and science, required core courses, and technical electives. Design is emphasized throughout the curriculum. These components ensure that students develop and refine discipline-specific knowledge and skills and engage in opportunities to apply their knowledge using the tools and techniques of modern engineering practice. The General Education component complements students' engineering education and encourages them to understand engineering roles in a broader context.

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 are required to receive grades of C- or better in any course that is used to satisfy engineering major requirements. Except for Fieldwork (EGC494 Fieldwork Computer Engin/EGE494 Fieldwork Engineering/EGM494 Fieldwork Mechanical Engineering), 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 EGG101 Introduction to Engineering Science and EGG321 Technical Communication. Exceptions are frequently granted for EGE200 Circuit Analysis, EGE201 Circuits Laboratory, EGC220 Digital Logic Fundamentals, and EGC221 Digital Logic Lab. Permission to register in any of these courses1 must be obtained from the Division of Engineering Programs prior to registration.

Admission of transfer students will be 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.

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