Cornell Engineering Strategic Plan -- Future ready engineers, educators, and entrepreneurs

Message from the Dean

Lynden Archer

Our world is more connected now than at any time in history. To forge a better future, it is clear that we must create conditions that bring all minds to the table, irrespective of family income, race, gender, national origin, and discipline.

Cornell Engineering is uniquely positioned to un-silo engineering and unlock innovation. The Cornell Engineering 2030 plan builds upon our 150-year-old reputation for rigor and excellence in teaching and discovery, and our deeply ingrained culture of collaborating across disciplines, to forge new paradigms for engineering education, research, and technology translation.

This is our time.
