Internationally recognized for cutting-edge research, Cornell Engineering can also point to award-winning teaching that has helped to place it among the top engineering programs in the world. Each year the college selects its best teachers to be honored with awards for excellence in teaching and advising. The university also recognizes good teaching with the annual Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellowships. Thirty percent of that elite Cornell group are members of the Engineering faculty.
