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 Commision of ABET, https://www.abet.org/
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.
Graduates of the broad-based Engineering Science program will be valued by the engineering community. The educational objective of our Engineering Science 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 spanning the wide range of engineering disciplines 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 broad 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 Engineering Science Curriculum prepares our students to achieve the program (student) outcomes, which require that our graduates demonstrate that:
- They have developed an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- 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
- The have developed an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- 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
- 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
- They have developed an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- They have developed an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies

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
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.
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.
