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 BS degree in Electrical Engineering, now in its fourth year, is going strong and is now accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012). A new graduate program in Electrical Engineering that will lead to the Masters of Engineering (ME) in Electrical Engineering is now expecting NY State approvals and expected to be in place by Fall 2017.
A new BS degree in Earth and Environmental Science is now offered, expanding our baccalaureate program to 5 different BS degree offerings. Addition of new course and curriculum development have strengthened our longstanding BS degree in Engineering Science and have led to its successful ABET re-accreditation in 2015. The two specializations within Engineering Science, namely, 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. The MS degree in Environmental Science, one of the first of its kind in the nation, is seeing steady growth and 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 for Physics, Geology and Astrophysics 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. The 2016-2017 academic year 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
