College of Engineering and Applied Sciences Plans to Enroll New Students into Computer Engineering Major

Program approval, progress in hiring and enrollment sparks unprecedented opportunities for students, faculty, public engagement, and regional economic development

ALBANY, NY (July 18, 2016) – The University at Albany is well poised to expand and grow its first-ever engineering program.

University officials today announced that the New York State Education Department formally approved UAlbany’s Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering. The University will bring on 14 highly respected faculty members to the new College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS).

These moves fully support the increased student, parent and business community demand for engineering majors.

“With this approval in hand, we are moving full steam ahead in launching the first public option for computer engineering in the Capital Region,” said UAlbany President Robert J. Jones. “Adding computer engineering to our expanding academic profile allows UAlbany to attract a new cohort of high-achieving students and world-class faculty—and to prepare graduates who can fill the growing regional and statewide demand for engineers.”
