Student Project Teams
Getting involved in AguaClara, a research group that has been successfully developing water purification systems in impoverished areas in Honduras and India was something extraordinary.
Applied Hands-on Learning. Collaborative. Innovative.
Cornell Engineering Project Teams mimic real-world engineering by bringing Cornell students, faculty, and staff together to solve complex problems in team-based settings. Breaking the rules of conventional wisdom is not foreign to our engineers and the spirit of innovation is alive and well in our state-or-the-art labs and workshops. Many of our teams compete regionally, nationally, and internationally in engineering design and build competitions and/or travel the globe for service learning projects and programs.
Engineering Project Teams by the Numbers:
- 29 teams in 2017-18
- Largest program of its kind in the country with over 1,100 student participants
- Over $1 million dollars of funding for 2014-2015
