Cornell Engineering Project Teams mimic real-world engineering by bringing Cornell students, faculty, and staff together to solve complex problems in team-based settings. Many of our teams compete regionally, nationally, and internationally in engineering design and build competitions and/or travel the globe for service learning projects and programs.

Because we believe great leadership development engages the heart and the mind, we emphasize empirically derived knowledge combined with personal inquiry and growth.

CALS Skills Assessment

Wherever life takes you right after college you need to arrive with professional skills, those attributes that speak to your ability to interact, communicate, and perform effectively.  Also known as soft skills, these qualities reflect your personality and experience, and play a large part in distinguishing your value and unique appeal on applications, in interviews, and across industries and positions.

You can assess your current level of competency in some essential professional skills by taking the MYM Skills Assessment offered by Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
