M.Eng. Student Culture in MAE

Who are we?

In the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, we are breaking stereotypes, expectations, and boundaries to solve the world's biggest problems. 

We don’t just train engineers. We foster engineering leaders and entrepreneurs who will tackle some of the biggest challenges of our time - from engineering new and better manufacturing materials to developing sustainable and innovative solutions to climate change.

The most tangible thing I gained from pursuing my M. Eng in MAE was being able to skip over the rank of Associate Engineer and start my current role as a full Engineer, which came with a higher starting salary.

Diversity and Inclusion in the Sibley School

In the Sibley School, we are dedicated to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for our students, faculty, and staff. In the College of Engineering and the Sibley School, we strive to live out Ezra Cornell’s vision of “any person, any study.”

As Dean Archer states, "we know that there is great strength in diversity and great reward in asking questions nobody has asked before. We honor our past and at the same time understand the need to do new things in new ways. Ezra Cornell wanted to break away from the educational norms of the past. In that same spirit, Cornell Engineering continues to break new ground in what we study and in how we study it."

The most valuable aspect of my M.Eng. experience has been the opportunity to pursue research in the field of my interest. This summer, I am interning with Proterra and with my M. Eng. research, I have the opportunity to study these electric buses before I even begin my internship!
