Stephen Lee

The Cornell M.Eng program in systems engineering is fantastic. The instructors are knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated to the success of each and every student regardless of circumstance. I can attest to this directly, as I spent the first 9 months of graduate school deployed in Baghdad, Iraq. During that time the professors were willing to meet with me outside of typical office hours and the technical staff created a separate drop box for all classroom videos to download in places of low internet bandwidth. This level of dedication and support continued throughout my entire time in the program. As a Director of Engineering, I use the skills I learned throughout the program in daily operation, and would strongly recommend the program to prospective systems and industrial engineers.
