Department of Engineering Science & Physics
Welcome to the department of Engineering Science and Physics’ website. This is an exciting time to be at The College of Staten Island and to be pursuing a degree in our Engineering and Physics department. Lots of new things are happening at the department as exciting new degrees, programs and courses are being introduced. The new BS degree in Electrical Engineering, now in its second year, is going strong and is applying for initial ABET accreditation in 2015. A new graduate program in Electrical Engineering that will lead to the Masters in Science (MS) in Electrical Engineering is now being prepared and expected to be in place by Fall 2016.
A new BS degree in Earth and Environmental Science is now making its way through the approval process and is expected to be in place by Spring 2016. Addition of new courses and curriculum development have strengthened our longstanding BS degree in Engineering Science and have led to its successful ABET re-accreditation visit in 2014. All three specializations within Engineering Science, namely, Electrical, Mechanical and Computer Engineering lead our graduates to exciting opportunities in the field. Our Physics program is now expanding with the BS degree in Physics and BS in Physics (7-12) for teachers seeing increased numbers. Our Astronomy and Geology college support courses offer exciting science learning opportunities for a wide audience of students and a Geology minor whereas the MS degree in Environmental Science, one of the first of its kind in the nation, is seeing steady growth and a support from an upcoming undergraduate program. Finally, our faculty, a group of dynamic and multi-disciplinary scientists and researchers bring knowledge and the state-of-the-art in their respective fields as well as passion for teaching. Through consortial appointments as doctoral faculty at the CUNY Graduate Center as well as the PhD program in Electrical Engineering at the City College of New York (CCNY/CUNY), our faculty are actively advising PhD students in the fields of astrophysics, electrical engineering, condensed matter theory and many more. 2015 promises to be an ultra-exciting year at the department and we look forward to sharing it with you, our valued students.
See you in the 1N and 4N classrooms, laboratories and around the campus.
My best regards for your success in our programs,
Neophytos (Neo) A. Antoniades, PhD
Professor & Chairman
