The MEng degree at Cornell differs substantially from the MS and other primarily research degrees, being mostly regarded as a professional masters program. It has been the subject of two highly in-depth reports over the past decade which have looked extensively at every aspect of the degree program, many of these having very direct relevance to the current document.
This program provides advanced course work designed to prepare the student for a career in professional engineering. There is less emphasis on research. Additional information is available in the publication Graduate Study in Engineering and Applied Science.
