Electrical and Computer Engineering


SUNY Oswego added electrical and computer engineering  to provide innovative educational experiences based on modern and sound teaching methods, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, and well-qualified faculty that will produce highly skilled and qualified engineering professionals.

The curriculum is designed to offer a well-rounded competitive engineering education that allows expertise in high-demand concentration areas including robotics, embedded systems, biomedical instrumentation and modern energy systems.

Majors and Programs

The ECE major leads to a bachelor of science in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree, a sought-after mark of excellence.

Student Opportunities

The programs are project-based so students can engage in active learning where teaching is conducted through combined lectures and laboratory experiments in specially designed studio classrooms. Students take on a capstone project where they design and develop devices or programs under the guidance of faculty and industrial partners when possible. Our engineering majors encourage and support student participation in a variety of regional, national and international project and hardware competitions. Students will also be encouraged to form an IEEE student chapter, a Women in Engineering chapter as well as various special interest student clubs (robotics, embedded systems, green energy and others).

We are currently connecting with local businesses and industries to establish internship and co-op opportunities for its students.

After Oswego

"As a group, engineers earn some of the highest average starting salaries among those holding bachelor's degrees." -- U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010.

The average starting salary for electrical and computer engineers is more than $60,000. ECE graduates can find employment locally with companies like Novelis, Lockheed-Martin, Welch-Allyn, Sensis, SRC Inc. and SRCTech Inc. among many others. On the national level, ECE jobs are available at numerous companies and government institutions including Harris, Intel, Motorola, Apple, NASA, the National Security Agency and Boeing, among many others. Software engineers attract interest from both larger established companies as well as the rapidly expanding number of startups plying ideas to make human lives better.
