Experience and Employment

Whether you choose to participate in undergraduate research, a student project team, the cooperative education program or internships in industry, experiencing engineering in a hands-on environment will enhance your experience, expand your résumé, and help you identify areas of interest to fine-tune your curriculum.


There are many options when it comes to getting industry experience. You could conduct research, complete an internship or join the cooperative education program, to name a few. 

To discuss which experience is the right fit for you, attend drop-in hours in the Cornell Engineering Career Center.


For questions about Job Search Strategies, Career Fair Preparation, Interviewing and more please contact the Cornell Engineering Career Center. They offer a wide array of services including drop-in hours, pre-semester programs, resume and cover letter critiques (for undergraduates only) and more.
