Stony Brook BSEE Online Courses
We recommend that you look at the entire BSEE Curriculum.
To ensure student authentication, we request students to have exams (mid-term/final) be proctored at testing centers, public facilities or higher education institutions. The following are examples of proctoring facilities National College Testing Association, the SUNY Exam Proctoring Services, public libraries, community colleges and other higher education institutions. Private proctors especially those who have a personal relationship with the student are not appropriate. Students should obtain approval of the faculty once they have identified a proctoring facility.
