Career Placement

Engineering Management will support you throughout the career search process.

The Cornell Engineering Management program offers personalized career support and advising for each student. Prior to arriving at Cornell, we work with each student to understand their career goals and develop a polished resume, cover letter, and career application plan. We organize an annual career trek to New York City to meet with alumni at companies such as Facebook, McKinsey, Goldman Sachs, Lyft, and Ernst and Young. These visits are a unique opportunity to engage with top Engineering Management employers. Our alumni hosts give tours of the company, provided insights about general day-to-day operations, and share relevant job opportunities. Many visits include panel discussions with employees to answer questions.

In addition, Engineering Management students take ENMGT 6090 “Professional and Leadership Development for Engineering Managers.” In this course, students practice informational/mock interviews, learn negotiations techniques, prepare for career fairs, and hone essential job-search skills. We also work closely with Cornell Engineering Career Center and students can take advantage of their a wide array of services including daily drop-in hours, pre-semester programs, and more.
