Did you know?

The name "Big Red Bear" originated in 1916, when the Cornell varsity football team collected $25 to buy a black bear cub, which they named Touchdown, to serve as a mascot. Cornell's varsity teams are actually nicknamed simply "the Big Red."

Undergraduate

A Cornell Engineering education is highly rewarding and respected around the world for its quality and comprehensiveness. Whether you choose graduate school, the Peace Corps, Wall Street, NASA, consulting, or a career in engineering, you will be ready with a degree from the College of Engineering. We offer one of the broadest curricula in the world with 12 majors, plus the option to create your own program, as well as 19 minors and dozens of concentrations.

Our students and faculty also "get their hands dirty," applying theoretical expertise in practical ways via research, group work, and student project teams that routinely connect traditionally disparate academic subjects. A central mission of the College of Engineering is to provide our students with a high quality education, unifying the various aspects of engineering with research and coursework found across Cornell University’s other six undergraduate colleges/schools.
