BS Electrical Engineering

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 Engineeering bachelor's  degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

For complete ADA compliant 4 Year Plan, see 4 Year Sample Plan or alternative 4 Year Flowchart Plan

Graduates of the Electrical Engineering (EE) program will be valued by the engineering community. The educational objective of our EE program is to prepare graduates to achieve success in the following within a few years of graduation: 

  • Participating in the design, development and application of new products, technologies, and processes in Electrical Engineering and recognizing that the profession will constantly evolve to meet new challenges
  • Continuing their graduate studies and/or professional development through admission to graduate programs, participating in professional organizations, seminars, workshops, technical committees and conferences or obtaining professional recognition
  • Conducting themselves in a responsible, professional, and ethical manner and taking advantage of their electrical engineering education to make contributions in their chosen fields
  • Becoming leaders in professional activities and volunteerism that support humanity and economic development locally, nationally and globally
  • Participate in mentoring programs to encourage prospective engineers as well as to provide professional development guidance to existing students

The Electrical Engineering curriculum prepares our students to achieve the program (student) outcomes, which require that our graduates demonstrate that: 

  1. They have developed an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. They have developed an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. They have developed an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. They have developed an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. They have developed an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. They have developed an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. They have developed an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
