Introducing the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Welcome to the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Engineering can be described as “Science in Service to Society.” The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences is educating the next generation of innovators who will address problems of importance to society and build the national wealth. Starting from an existing core of strength in computational and information sciences and engineering, and identifying particular societal needs and opportunities in conjunction with colleagues across the university, the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences produces graduates prepared for successful careers in industry, government, academia, and research.
We expect that the future home of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences will be located in the Schuyler Building on the downtown campus, as we continue to identify and develop new programs.

CEAS Graduate Elected 2017 Special Libraries Association President
Dee Magnoni, a 1992 UAlbany MLS graduate, has been elected the 2017 President of the Special Libraries Association. Currently, she is the research library director at the Los Alamos National Library in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
Our Center for Technology in Government partners with one of the state’s leading providers of e-government solutions to help small to medium governments dig out from a growing avalanche of digital records and emerge paper-free, bearing greater openness and transparency.
reimagine Research, a sample of outstanding faculty efforts over the past year, evinces how UAlbany’s research enterprise is contributing to the understanding of the world in often unprecedented and unexpected ways.
UAlbany continues to enhance its academic footprint, welcoming 64 new full-time faculty members, including both tenure-track and full-time lecturers. New deans and provosts will lead efforts in the areas of criminal justice, engineering and applied sciences, social welfare, and international education. Several administrative professionals are added as well.
