During these summer academies, Cornell University's world-renowned faculty and graduate students lead classes, lab sessions, and a research project designed for Academy participants. During the week, students work in teams conducting research and learning to solve problems that mirror real-life situations. In addition, social events, panel discussions, and other out-of-classroom activities provide participants with opportunities to network informally with each other and Cornell faculty, staff, and students.
Primary goals of our academies include:
- Expose students to the exciting opportunities that exist for them in engineering;
- Help students understand that women and all underrepresented minorities belong and are needed in STEM fields;
- Demonstrate the connections between the study of engineering and solving problems affecting people and society.
