Congratulations on your acceptance to Cornell University's College of Engineering. We are excited you have decided to attend Cornell!

Once you arrive on campus you'll be busy with academics, getting to know the college, exploring resources and meeting faculty and colleagues. Most of you will also be pursuing employment opportunities toward securing a job before graduation.

The fall is a busy time so we have put together a two-step program to help you begin to prepare for your job search; a summer career curriculum and a daylong job search orientation.

The web based M.Eng. & MPS Career Curriculum consists of 4 modules for you to complete over the summer and many resources you'll use often during the academic year. Once you arrive on campus you'll attend a daylong Job Search Orientation on August 20 to practice your skills.

On campus recruiting begins in early September, so completing the summer career curriculum and attending the daylong job search orientation is a good way to begin to prepare yourself to apply for these position. Details and deadlines are covered in the summer career curriculum.

We look forward to meeting you in August and welcoming you in person to our college community and Cornell.
