Electrical & Computer Engineering, B.S.

Prepare for a solid career by building a foundation in both the hardware and software used in controls, signal processing, integrated circuits, communication networks, wireless communication, and computer operating systems.

What You’ll Learn

The Electrical and Computer Engineering, B.S. offers a balance of theoretical fundamentals and hands-on experiences in a small-class setting—most courses have fewer than 20 students.

One of only four accredited electrical and computer engineering programs in the State of New York, our bachelor’s program helps you learn various tools to simulate electrical/electronic circuits, program microprocessors/embedded systems/FPGAs, model and implement control/communication systems, and process data/signals/systems.

You’ll have the opportunity to work on funded research projects for the Department of Defense, National Science Foundation, among others alongside faculty at New York Tech’s Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC). Many students publish their work in recognized journals as part of the Undergraduate Research & Entrepreneurial Program (UREP).
