2) Those entering the program without sufficient technical background must take six (6) additional credits in a technical area. Members of the faculty will determine what constitutes an appropriate background.

As with all curricular requirements, students must complete the core curriculum that was in place when they were first admitted to NYIT or when they changed their majors (check the catalog of that year for details). All of the courses current students will need to complete their degrees will be offered over the next few years. You may also refer to the Semester Maps maintained by the Advising and Enrichment Center (AEC).

Please Note: All course selections must be confirmed by an advisor in your academic department.
