About the Program
The Earth System Science & Environment Engineering Program at the City College of New York is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012 - telephone: (410) 347-7700.
EESS/ESE is unique in its structure.
Students follow a rigorous core that combines the basic engineering requirements with a thorough scientific foundation. Flexibility is achieved by choosing courses of interest from a large number of electives. Upper level students are strongly encouraged to engage in cutting-edge ongoing research at CCNY as well as industrial partners and federal and local agencies through internships. Placement assistance is provided through the program.
Many EESS/ESE graduates continue to graduate school or to careers with our industry partners and government agencies
