Undergraduate Admissions

in this section

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 14 majors, including the option to create your own program, as well as 20 minors and dozens of concentrations.

Our students and faculty also "get their hands dirty," applying theoretical expertise in practical ways via group work, undergraduate research, 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.

Did you know?

Grad students Ernest Schoder (Ph.D., 1902) and August Saph (Ph.D., 1902) working in the Hydraulics Laboratory authored a classic study in hydraulic experimentation. Their precise measurements on frictional water resistance in pipes verified the exponential relationship between velocity and head loss. Prof. Schoder’s commitment to hydraulic research and brought such renown to himself and Cornell that it could be said that the majority of the leading American hydraulicians of the first quarter of this century were educated, or participated in tests conducted at Cornell.
