Extracurricular Programs

Learning doesn't just happen in the classroom.

Being a successful engineer in the 21st century often requires a person to also be a collaborator, a designer, a project manager, an entrepreneur, a communicator, and a leader. Cornell Engineering offers a variety of opportunities outside of the standard classroom and lab curriculum to develop the many aspects that add up to a well-educated engineer.

Course work is just one aspect of life in the college. Students have ample opportunities to enhance their curriculum with special programs across campus and around the world. The co-op program offers on-the-job experience in the real world. Student project teams create excellent opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration. For students with entrepreneurial interests, the Kessler Fellows Program gives them the business savvy they need to put their ideas to work. Study Abroad exposes students to international languages and cultures. Leadership skills can be developed and enhanced in student clubs and organizations, as well as in the Engineering Leadership Program's many offerings. And that's only a few of the opportunities in Engineering; there's a whole university to experience. In a campus community with the breadth and depth of Cornell, in the words of one student, "If you can't do it here, it can't be done."
