Engineering Leadership Program

in this section

These are exciting times for engineers. Society's biggest challenges are increasingly met with technology, and science is nearly synonymous with innovation.

But technical skills alone are not enough. Turning ideas into solutions, bringing innovations to life, influencing governments and societies: these require engineers to step up as team members and leaders.

The mission of the Engineering Leadership Program is to grow powerful leaders who take on our world's biggest challenges with knowledge, skill, insight and courage. We achieve this through classes and seminars, supplemental instruction in design courses, the Engineering Leadership Certificate Program, and other means. Because we believe great leadership development engages the heart and the mind, we emphasize empirically derived knowledge combined with personal inquiry and growth.

Cornell Engineering Leaders stand for integrity, curiosity, self-awareness, responsibility for impact, compassion, growth, and determination.
