Vision: Engineering for Society, Innovating for a Better World
At NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, students have the opportunity to work on 21st-century technological challenges that directly affect the world in which they live. The school is known as “the place” where innovators, engineering firms, public utilities, and federal and state agencies seek talented faculty and students to advance their projects, inventions, and technologies in the classroom, the lab, the field, or on site. By the time they graduate, our “industry ready” students are equipped with the fundamentals needed to pursue graduate studies and are prepared to join the workforce with minimal on-the-job training.
The School of Engineering and Computing Sciences offers baccalaureate degrees in computer science, electrical and computer engineering, information technology, mechanical engineering, engineering management, electrical and computer engineering technology, and telecommunications network management. Students who have not chosen a specific branch of engineering as a major, or who do not fully satisfy the entrance requirements for engineering, may be classified with an “undeclared” status in the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences up to the end of their second year. Transfer students and students who have completed more than two years of coursework should check with both their academic and financial aid advisors regarding their status as majors. The school also offers master’s degrees in computer science, environmental technology, electrical and computer engineering, energy management, information, network and computer security, mechanical engineering, and bioengineering.
