Online Bachelor's Program Accreditted
In May 2011, the College of Engineering and Applied Science at Stony Brook University received the NY State Education Department’s approval to create a completely online Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering (BSEE). Since Aug 2015, the program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The program, being a separate one from our residential Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (BEEE), is well received among working professionals. Students in the program take all classes online and asynchronously, watching lecture videos, interacting with professors and other online students over the Internet and taking exams at local testing/proctoring centers. Through the innovative use of technology, hands-on, real experiments conducted by online students at home are the same as those in the residential program.
“Most of our students are working professionals, often with family, seeking career advancement. The schedule flexibility of the program offers these individuals an opportunity to earn a bachelor degree in electrical engineering while working full time and supporting a family” said Wendy Tang, Program Director.
The program is supported by faculty at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Stony Brook University, along with faculty from the University at Buffalo and Binghamton University.
