SUNY Adirondack's engineering program provides a core curriculum typical of 4-year engineering colleges. Students transfer as juniors to a variety of public and private institutions throughout the U.S. The NYS Two Year Engineering Sciences Association (TYESA) articulation agreement guarantees priority admission to all major public and private engineering schools in New York State (e.g., Binghamton, Clarkson, RIT, RPI, Union). SUNY Adirondack also has formal articulation agreements with select colleges. High school preparation: Mathematics through calculus & regents chemistry required. Recommended: Physics, computer science, mechanical drawing/CAD.
