The ECE program offers a combined Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a curriculum that provides a well-rounded competitive engineering education that still allows deeper studies in the five high-demand concentration areas of embedded systems, robotics, biomedical instrumentation, modern energy systems and wireless communication systems.

All requirements for program accreditation by ABET are implemented within the operation and curriculum of the program.


Our mission is to contribute to the common good by lighting the path to wisdom and empowering women and men to pursue meaningful lives as productive, responsible citizens.

Inspired by a shared commitment to excellence and the desire to transcend traditional higher-education boundaries, SUNY Oswego will be a premier institution that provides a transformative experience to a diverse body of students, empowering them to live ethical and meaningful lives and build a better world.


The SUNY Oswego ECE program objective is to prepare students for successful careers in Engineering or related professional disciplines or the successful pursuit of graduate studies with contributions to the betterment of society and the global community as evidenced by:

  • Meaningful employment in industry, business, or government
  • Leadership positions in their profession or communities
  • Advanced degrees
  • Promotions, awards, and recognitions within their chosen profession and discipline
  • Positive contributions to their profession and to society
  • Overall satisfaction with their undergraduate engineering preparation

The SUNY Oswego Electrical and Computer Engineering Program adopts the EAC/ABET learning outcomes a-k as its own.


  1. ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  4. ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  5. ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  7. ability to communicate effectively
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  9. recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  10. knowledge of contemporary issues
  11. ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.


The ECE program is serving a growing student population.  Since its inception in Fall 2013, student enrollment has grown from 22 students to about 130 at the start of Fall 2016.  Most ECE classes have an enrollment cap of 20 ensuring a very reasonable faculty-to-student ratio that encourages one-to-one contact between students and faculty and provides closer attention to student learning, progress, and success.


 Entering first-year students will be able to declare an ECE major without any requirements beyond general SUNY Oswego admission requirements. To enter SUNY Oswego as a transfer student, a cumulative grade point average of 2.3 is expected if the applicant has completed 30+ hours and 2.5 if fewer credits are transferred.


The curriculum is designed to offer a well-rounded competitive engineering education with sufficient flexibility to allow deeper studies in five different high-demand concentration areas: embedded systems , robotics, biomedical instrumentation, modern energy systems and wireless communication.
