Cornell Engineering is one of a constellation of colleges and schools that make up a world-class research university. Engineering draws from and contributes to the university's strengths in such fields as medicine, veterinary sciences, and the life sciences and we leverage that excellence through twelve academic units within engineering. Ezra Cornell sought to found an institution where "any person can find instruction in any study." Cornell Engineering is a showcase of his vision; the breadth of our program is nationally unique.
