(100 credits)

  • Students majoring in Engineering follow a modified General Education program based on the New Paltz GE program in effect at the time of matriculation. In all cases, modifications meet or exceed SUNY's minimum General Education requirement and are reflected in students' progress reports.
  • A minimum of 124 credits is required to complete the Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering.
  • 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 earn a grade of C- or better in any course that is used to satisfy Computer Engineering major requirements.

Total Credits100

A grade of B- or better in CPS210 Computer Science I: Foundations is required to progress to CPS310 Computer Science II: Data Structures .


Seniors must register for EGG408 Senior Design Project I and EGG409 Sr Design Project 2 during each of the last two semesters preceding their graduation. A single project under the direction of a single faculty member will be spread over the two semesters. This project should provide a meaningful engineering design experience and should draw on the student's cumulative technical background.


Technical electives may also include any 300/400/500-level computer science, physics, and math courses. Students must obtain the approval of their advisor prior to registering for the courses. Pre-approved engineering graduate courses may be used as undergraduate technical electives.
