Cornell Welcomes Students Back this Fall

Upson Hall

The Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering echo’s the message sent from President Pollack. We are excited to welcome you back to campus in the fall!

As mentioned below, Cornell will be opening for in-person instruction with a hybrid course style this fall. There will be opportunities for remote learning for those that cannot or do not feel comfortable returning to campus.

The Sibley School faculty worked hard last spring to transition to online instruction and will continue to work hard this fall to ensure our students receive the world-class education associated with the Sibley School.

We want to take a moment to commend our students for their resiliency last semester. We recognize the difficulty of this situation. Although this is not how they imagined their time at Cornell, we intend to make the educational experience impactful.

The next two months, six months, and likely year will be an exiting time for the Sibley School and the University.  As a team. the department did exceptionally well in the spring responding to the crisis.  The fall will bring different, and perhaps even more difficult, challenges - but ones we are confident we can address.  We are excited to provide the best educational experience for our students and conduct the highest impact research in a safe and secure environment.

Please read President Pollack’s message thoroughly as there are many details about new policies for the fall semester. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.
