The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University



In the era of exponential technological growth and limitless potential for innovation, engineers and applied scientists are poised to drive global economic development via futuristic research and technology transfer that bring science fiction to everyday life. The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences is at the forefront of inventing the future with cutting-edge research and educational paradigms that fuse science, technology and engineering with medicine, the arts, business and social sciences.

We are educating the next generation of global innovators and entrepreneurs to effect change in areas critical to improving the human condition and sustaining humanity. We are tackling the biggest challenges of our time by advancing cross-disciplinary research in engineering-driven medicine, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, clean energy for a more sustainable future and much, much more.

Faculty and students reach across boundaries, break down barriers and are inspired to ask bold questions, pursue big ideas, explore and innovate. This is how we are making science fiction come to life every day.
