Electrical and computer engineers are at the forefront of the creation, transmission and use of electronic systems. Their system designs are responsible for the development of new products and improvement of existing ones in nearly every facet of business, consumer, medical and military technology. Some specialty areas include robotics, microprocessors, aircraft and spacecraft control systems, software systems, utility and industrial power systems, communication systems and digital hardware.
The objectives of the Electrical and Computer Engineering program are satisfied by having our students take courses in electrical and computer engineering, computer science, liberal arts, humanities, mathematics, and science, with an increasing emphasis on design. The sequences established are meant to provide both depth and breadth in the major areas of study, while also providing a degree of flexibility through a choice of elective courses that allow the students to specialize in areas of particular interest.
Within this general direction and the mission of the college as well, the faculty have determined Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) that intend to create versatile engineers who will:
Based on our Program Educational Objectives, the department established student outcomes so that upon graduation, students with a degree in the Electrical and Computer Engineering program at NYIT will:
