Other Student Support Programs

The Offices of Advising, the Career Center and Engineering Learning Initiatives provide a comprehensive approach to enriching the academic experience and promoting the academic achievement of undergraduate students. The offices promote academic excellence, diversity, collaborative learning, and the advancement of an integrated community with core values and ethics that support the development of engineers with a social conscience. A variety of programs and services are offered to help orient, network, update, support, and celebrate students. Ethnic, cultural, gender, and learning differences are supported to ensure the academic and personal success of all students. Students selected on a variety of criteria can participate in a six-week residential Pre-freshman Summer Program, which offers both regular and accelerated classes, seminars, field trips, and recreational activities. All students participate in a variety of orientation activities and all freshmen participate in an Engineering 1050 Seminar: a one-credit seminar taught by faculty advisors during the fall semester to provide first-year students with an introduction to engineering and university resources. Skills workshops, distinguished speaker series, undergraduate research, leadership opportunities, and peer facilitation opportunities all enhance the academic program and life at Cornell.

The Diversity Programs in Engineering office operates programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and faculty levels to facilitate the outreach, recruitment, retention, and overall success of all members of the College of Engineering community, but especially those from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in Engineering including, but not limited to women, underrepresented minorities, and first generation college students. The Diversity office also supports many fellowship programs and opportunities for development for our students including (but not limited to), the Cornell Sloan & Cornell Colman Fellowships, the GEM Fellowship program, summer success symposiums and mentorship opportunities.

The Engineering Leadership Program provides opportunities for students to develop the enabling skills of leadership to accelerate their ability to become effective leaders and to understand the positive impact of great leadership.

The College also enrich works to the environment of engineering graduate students. The College supports the Engineering Graduate Student Association with new graduate student orientation and other academic and recreational activities. We work closely with the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies, Directors of Graduate Studies, Graduate Field Assistants and the Graduate School to provide support for engineering graduate students on a variety of topics, for example ranging from assistance with applications for prestigious fellowships to administering the College financial aid awards.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Undergraduate: Students participate in design projects through both the major curricula and co-curricular projects such as the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, Agua Clara, FSAE Racecar, Engineers Without Borders, Mars Rover, Baja SAE, CU Genetically Engineered Machines (CUGEM), Engineering World Health, and Genetically Engineered Machines.


MEng: A design project is required for the MEng professional degree. It generally carries 3-12 academic credits. The type of project varies by graduate field. Although some projects are completed individually, others are completed in small teams. Projects vary from those with a high design component to those developing technology management skills, and to those approaching thesis research. Some projects encompassing multiple fields, such as systems engineering, are team based and may involve international competitions.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The College of Engineering offers a four-year comprehensive undergraduate program that emphasizes a core of mathematics, science, and fundamental engineering in the first 1.5 years, followed by 2.5 years of specialization and hands-on experience in one of thirteen majors. A wide variety of minors that supplement the regular bachelor's degree are offered. The college of engineering is ranked among the top engineering schools in the country and is also closely integrated with Cornell's other Ivy League programs, including the Cornell Tech campus based in New York City. The college also offers a cooperative education program that allows for the student to spend seven to eight months in industry while still completing the undergraduate degree in four years. Graduate programs are organized into "fields," which include faculty members from more than one academic department. This structure is conducive to interdisciplinary research. The college also offers a one-year, project-oriented professional Master of Engineering (MEng) degree. An emphasis on entrepreneurialism yields a wide range of courses, fellowships, experiential learning and product development opportunities for students to enhance their leadership skills or bring a technology to market.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

Students can earn both a Bachelor of Science and either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in about five years (ten semesters). Arts or Bachelor of Fine Arts degree can be earned in about five years. Students registered in the College of Engineering, the College of Arts and Sciences, or the College of Architecture, Art and Planning may apply and, after acceptance of their application, begin the concurrent degree program in their second or third year.
Ordinarily, students need at least ten semesters to complete a concurrent degree program, although exceptional students may be able to arrange an accelerated program and have it approved by petition. Such a program may not rely on credits earned at community colleges. Students who experience difficulty are not required to finish the work for both degrees, but it may be difficult to complete the requirements for either degree in four years because of the way their curriculum has been structured.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

GPA and similar requirements vary by field. Many fields require that Fall admission applicants submit their completed applications by early January.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All documents must be provided in the original language and accompanied by certified translations in English. Applicants whose native language is not English must provide proof of competency in English. Acceptable proof includes: 1) a TOEFL test taken no more than two years before the date of application with an TOEFL iBT having a minimum score of 20 in writing, 15 in listening, 20 in reading and 22 in speaking, or a TOEFL paper based test with minimum score of 550 or 2) two or more years of study in an undergraduate or graduate program in a country where both the native language and the language of instruction are English.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

There are no additional requirements for non-resident students.

Residency Requirements

Doctoral degree candidates must complete at least six academic semesters of full time study and research (residence units) before the degree is granted. Master of Science degree candidates must earn at least two residence units. At least one-half of the residence units earned for a Master's or Ph.D. degree must be earned from full-time study at Cornell. There is a one semester residency requirement for the Master of Engineering degree, except for area residents participating in part-time programs and distance learning degree students.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Ph.D. degree candidates may be granted a maximum of two residence credits for a Master's degree earned at another institution if that degree is relevant to the doctoral program. No commitment regarding transfer of residence credit may be made until after the student has matriculated and the Special Committee has had an opportunity to judge the student's accomplishments. Candidates for the Master's of Science and Master's of Engineering degree programs cannot receive residence credit for previous study at other graduate schools. Candidates for Master of Engineering degree programs may transfer up to 9 credits with field approval.

Biological and Environmental Engineering

Biological and Environmental Engineering has four main research areas noted below: They overlap greatly in their general focus, the faculty interests, graduate student interests, and current and proposed research projects. Biological Engineering is an interdisciplinary area focusing on the application of engineering principles to analyze biological systems and to solve problems in the interfacing of such systems -- plant, animal or microbial--with human-designed machines, structures, processes and instrumentation. Environmental Engineering’s broad mission is to improve the understanding of physical, chemical, and biological processes related to water flow with the ultimate goal of improving and protecting water resources and ecological systems throughout the world and in socially conscious ways. Food and Bioprocessing Engineering’s research and teaching program are built around the application of transport phenomena (e.g., energy and water transport, fluid flow) in biological processes in an effort to better understand their complexities with the intent of improving them through optimization. Industrial biotechnology can be simply defined as the exploitation of enzymes, microorganisms, and plants to produce energy, industrial chemicals and consumer goods.

Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering strives to develop new tools to improve human health. Our goal is to understand the human body as an integrated system through quantitative engineering analysis, and then to develop better therapies, devices, and diagnostics.

National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center

Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico is a part of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center. This national research center is operated by Cornell under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation (NSF). The observatory was conceived in 1960 by former Cornell electrical engineering professor William E. Gordon. It is the largest radio telescope in the world--the main reflector dish measures 330 meters (1000 feet) in diameter and covers an area of 18 acres.

Research at Arecibo is diverse and exciting--scientists travel from around the world to further their work with Arecibo's facilities. They have applied the technology to a range of projects investigating planets, pulsars, quasars, outer galaxies, and dark matter.

In 1997 engineers completed a $25 million upgrade to the Arecibo facility (shown at right). A Gregorian reflector system now hangs from the main detector area 137 meters (450 feet) above the main reflector dish. The Gregorian dome contains two relfector dishes, a radar transmitter, and microwave receivers. The secondary and tertiary reflectors channel the signal from the main reflector into the receivers.

National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network

The National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network is a community of fourteen university-based nanoscale infrastructure facilities, including the Cornell Nanoscale Science and Technology Facility, that is supported by National Science Foundation and that provide open access for conducting research and development in the science and engineering of the nanoscale. Each of the facilities, while serving broader needs, provides leadership in specific technical focus areas so that advanced techniques, instruments, and knowledge can be utilized by student and professional researchers and by industry and federal laboratories. The network also has in place a national and local effort in support of education, public outreach, in examining and developing ethical and societal consciousness and in examining implications of nanotechnology. See www.nnin.org for more information.

Platform for the Accelerated Realization, Analysis, and Discovery of Interface Materials

PARADIM is a new materials innovation platform led by Cornell University. It is an NSF mid-scale instrumentation program supported in the Division of Materials Research. PARADIM seeks to advance fundamental understanding of oxide-based hetero-interfaces with a range of two-dimensional (2D) material systems including oxides, chalcogenides and graphene through transformational research and mid-scale investments in instrumentation for bulk and thin film crystal growth and characterization. Fabricating interfaces and heterostructures between complex oxides and 2D materials allows for the creation of an atomically-precise “active substrate” that can itself have novel electronic and magnetic functionality, such as ferroelectricity, ferromagnetism, or superconductivity. Creating interface materials with designed properties opens up untold degrees of freedom that may result in transformational evolutions in next generation electronics. PARADIM is a partnership between Cornell, Clark Atlanta University, Johns Hopkins University, and Princeton University. This platform marks the beginning of a new PARADIM in materials discovery.

Power Systems Engineering Research Center

The Power Systems Engineering Research Center draws on university capabilities to creatively address the different challenges the evolving electric power industry currently faces. Under the banner of PSERC, multiple U.S. universities are working collaboratively with industry to (1) engage in forward-thinking about future scenarios for the industry and the challenges that might arise from them, (2) conduct research for innovative solutions to these challenges using multidisciplinary research expertise in a unique multi-campus work environment, (3) facilitate interchange of ideas and collaboration among academia, industry and government on critical industry issues, and (4) educate the next generation of power industry engineers. See www.pserc.org for more information.

Program of Computer Graphics

The focus of graphics research involves the three-dimensional modeling and rendering of very complex environments and algorithms for realistic image synthesis. Research is being conducted on light reflection models, methods for determining the interaction between diffusely reflecting surfaces, techniques for improving the computational efficiency of ray-tracing and radiosity, physical measurement of light reflections, medical and architectural CAD applications, computer animation, ornithology and much more. With now five faculty members and two research associates, we have expanded the scope of our research into physically based simulations for very complex multi-body collisions, aerodynamics and flight simulations, large deformation material behavior, and haptic feedback for user interfaces. Recently, we have embarked on research creating a software environment for the interactive modeling and simulation for sustainable building design as well as developments of new techniques for the next generation of human/computer interfaces. See www.graphics.cornell.edu for more information.
