Prospective Students

Engineering and computer science continue to rank among the fastest-growing and highest paying occupations. Each year, more students are looking to the Watson School for a strong education with the cutting-edge experience needed to hit the ground running in these highly competitive fields. As an engineering or computer science student in the Watson School, you will study with some of the best students in the nation. Combined with the Watson School's inspired faculty and commitment to innovation and real-world experience, Binghamton University is a dynamic place to learn. Classes are taught by experienced senior faculty, and tutorial sessions ensure the individualized help and learning needed for each student's success.

Transfer to Engineering

Our engineering disciplines are appropriate for transfer students with attention to those students' particular strengths and needs. Our talented students include graduates of community college engineering science programs in New York state who have transferred into the Watson program for upper-division study. Detailed transcript audits and individual advisers help each student prepare an efficient academic plan for his or her major. General information for all prospective engineering transfer students is available in the special transfer brochure below. Students enrolled in the associate of science in engineering science programs around the state can rely upon this information to guide their community college elective choices. Also listed below are specific transfer equivalency guides for some of those New York state community college partners.

Veteran Students

The Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science utilizes the recommendations from the American Council on Education's (ACE) Military Guide to review courses on the Joint Services Transcript (JST).  Each transcript will be individually reviewed by one of our academic advisors.


The Watson School welcomes your application and thanks you for your service!
Questions about services and support for veteran students at Binghamton University and financial aid benefits available to you should be directed to the Office for Veterans Services.

Project Lead the Way

Students that earn Project Lead the Way credits while in high school may choose to have the transcript sent to Binghamton University. While these credits do not replace any required courses, they do count for credit towards registration times and appear on the student's permanent record.
