Outstanding Research Opportunities

Budding engineers take a step toward thought-controlled drones, with CSI prof’s guidance. It might sound like fantasy to say a computer can read someone’s mind and then activate a motor. But that’s exactly what young mechanical engineers at the College of  Staten Island devised this summer. In the blink of an eye, engineering students solve real-world problems

These students were trained in cutting-edge research projects by CSI professors and were learning and interacting hand-in-hand with undergraduate and graduate CSI students. The competition among CSI      Professors for this research opportunity was division-wide.

Dean Incera wishes to congratulate all the students who participated in this endeavor for their contributions as well as the professors who won the grants, whose names are listed below.

College of Staten Island’s First Annual CSI Science Day

CSI's First Annual Science Day

Students from Staten Island Technical High School, New Dorp High School, and the CSI International High School attended the College of Staten Island’s (CSI)  first annual CSI Science Day. Established by the Division of Science and Technology, the event allowed students to tour CSI laboratories and facilities, and participate in science-related activities throughout the day.




CSI’s Engineering Program in US News & World Report Ranking

Cover of magazine showing best universities in the northThe Engineering Program at the College of Staten Island (CSI) has made it to the ranks in the latest US News and World Report listing for 2017 Best Colleges in the category of Regional Northeast Universities. The Program is tied for 111th. 

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BS EE), which has been offered since Spring 2014 by the Department of Engineering Science and Physics is also now accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET). The accreditation action extends retroactively from October 2013 and therefore covers students who have already graduated. Check out CSI’s citation on the US News & World Report web site.
