One of the classic and perhaps most prestigious of all engineering degrees, namely the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BS EE), is being offered at the College of Staten Island (CSI) by the Department of Engineering and Environmental Science.
The high-tech field of Electrical Engineering has historically exhibited steady growth and has been the breeding ground for modern advances in telecommunications, automation, and networking among other technologies. Students at CSI are able to enroll and pursue undergraduate studies in this prestigious program. CSI is only the second institution within CUNY and one of only a handful in the greater metropolitan area offering the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering.
The Electrical Engineering bachelor’s degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012).

The program educational objectives are established with direct input from the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB), alumni, and students. The educational objectives are consistent with the mission of the College and Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) criteria. They are also published in the Electrical Engineering program brochure. The overall objectives of the four-year Electrical Engineering curriculum are that our recent graduates shall:
- Make career advancements into the engineering profession by applying the common fundamentals of electrical engineering and related sciences.
- Be engaged in developing creative solutions and designs for contemporary electrical engineering problems.
- Be engaged in electrical engineering practices centered on innovation through effective communication and collaboration with academia and industry, fellow engineers, and the community at large.
- Be engaged in engineering practices grounded in the ethical, social, and moral responsibilities of the profession and ongoing professional development, including the promotion of professional licensing.
- Be engaged in engineering practices centered on experimentation and analysis of data in the context of economic, social and other realistic design constraints.
The Electrical Engineering curriculum prepares our students to achieve the program (student) outcomes, which require that our graduates demonstrate that:
- They are prepared for entrance into the engineering profession with a solid foundation in the fundamentals of mathematics, science, and engineering that apply to the field of electrical engineering.
- They have the ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- They have the ability to design an engineering system subject to realistic constraints including, but not limited to constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
- They have the ability to work on multidisciplinary teams and/or projects.
- They have developed problem-solving skills and have the ability to use engineering judgment necessary to solve real-life engineering problems.
- They have an understanding of their professional and ethical responsibilities.
- They have the ability to communicate effectively, focusing on written and oral presentation skills.
- They are exposed to a broad education that enables them to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and social context.
- They are prepared for life-long learning by establishing a process of critical and creative thinking.
- They are prepared for a role in society that goes beyond being engineering professionals.
- They have the ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for the practice of engineering.
- They have an awareness of the need for continuous professional development.
