The Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Science at the College of Staten Island is a modern practical approach to engineering education. The engineering student receives a broad engineering, mathematical and scientific background which permits flexibility and adjustment to the rapidly changing techniques of contemporary engineering. Students study in brand new high-tech equipped laboratories. The program also has several state-of-the-art research laboratories that provide opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research programs at the college. We have found that students who qualify for research programs are also more highly employable in today's engineering marketplace.

The Engineering Science 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).

We also offer a joint major between Engineering Science and Physics. We encourage Physics majors who share much of their course work with Engineering Science to take this option to improve their employability in case they do not go on to graduate school.

 

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 Engineering Science program brochure. The overall objectives of the four-year Engineering Science curriculum are that our recent graduates shall:

  1. Make career advancements into the engineering profession by applying the common fundamentals of science and engineering and the multidisciplinary nature of all these fields.
  2. Be engaged in developing creative solutions and designs for contemporary engineering problems.
  3. Be engaged in engineering practices centered on innovation through effective communication and collaboration with management, fellow engineers, and customers.
  4. Be engaged in engineering practices grounded in the ethical, social, and moral responsibilities of the profession and ongoing professional development.
  5. Be engaged in engineering practices centered on experimentation and analysis of data in the context of economic, social and other realistic design constraints.

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

  1. They are prepared for entrance into the engineering profession with a solid foundation in the fundamentals that apply to all fields of engineering with an emphasis on electrical, computer, and mechanical engineering.
  2. They have the ability to interpret and compare theoretical simulation results with actual experimental results.
  3. Our graduates 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. 
  4. They have the ability to work on a multidisciplinary team.
  5. They have developed problem-solving skills and have the ability to use engineering judgment necessary to solve real-life engineering problems.
  6. They have an understanding of their professional and ethical responsibilities.
  7. They have the ability to communicate effectively.
  8. They are exposed to a broad education that enables them to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and social context.
  9. They are prepared for life-long learning by establishing a process of critical and creative thinking.
  10. They are prepared for a role in society that goes beyond being engineering professionals.
  11. They have the ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for the practice of engineering.
  12. They have an awareness of the need for continuous professional development.

Engineering Science Specializations

The engineering science program offers two specializations (tracks) usually taken in the senior year for students to explore and prepare for particular areas of engineering and to prepare for graduate work in a specialized field.

For a full list of courses available, see the Undergraduate Catalog

Mechanical Engineering

The courses in Mechanical Engineering specialization allow the engineering science students to become proficient in the design, testing and evaluation of mechanical, energy, and environmental systems. These systems are found in transportation, automobiles, aircraft, marine vessels, and spacecrafts, and in manufacturing, including numerically controlled machine tools, automated assembly lines, and robotics. Energy systems studied are found in power plants, turbomachinery, nuclear plants, automobile engines, turbojets, and rockets. Students interested in environmental engineering work together with graduate students in environmental science studying water pollution, air pollution, risk analysis, and modeling and optimization of environmental systems. In the capstone Engineering Design course given in the last semester of the four year sequence students formulate, solve, and properly document the solution of a well engineered real-world mechanical engineering project.

Computer Engineering

The courses in Computer Engineering specialization allow the engineering science students to become proficient in the design, testing and evaluation of computer systems. These systems include but are not limited to microprocessors, signal processors, networks, telecommunication systems, and telemedicine equipment. In the capstone Engineering Design course given in the last semester of the four year sequence students formulate, solve, and properly document the solution of a well engineered real-world computer engineering project.
