Unformatted text preview: 1 Preface This handbook is intended to support you as an entering and continuing undergraduate in the College of Engineering at Cornell University. (Some curriculum requirements may not be relevant to continuing students.) It has been prepared as a handy reference guide to the requirements, programs, policies, and procedures of the college. We hope that you will fnd the inFormation you need For both planning and understanding your engineering education. The College of Engineering would also like to emphasize the importance of the social and ethical implications of the work of engineers as a contribution to the improvement of society. You are fortunate to be a part of an educational community composed of people from many different parts of the world and from diverse ethnic groups in the United States. This diversity gives Cornell a rich multicultural character, and living in the Cornell community can be an opportunity to learn respect for the customs of others and to experience cultural pluralism in today’s world. We encourage you to seek out and explore courses and activities that address issues of race, gender, and ethnic diversity to gain a more valuable educational experience and to prepare for the practice of engineering. Although this handbook embraces the development of an undergraduate engineering education, it does not constitute a complete or defnitive statement oF the policies oF Cornell University and the College of Engineering. The university announcement Courses of Study is the oFfcial document oF the university For defning academic programs and requirements. In addition, the fnal authority For academic degree requirements of the College of Engineering is jointly administered by the faculty of the College of Engineering, the College Curriculum Governing Board, and the faculty of the individual Majors within Engineering. For more complete information, consult the sources mentioned in this handbook, Courses of Study , and Engineering Advising in 167 Olin Hall. We hope you fnd this handbook a useFul resource as you progress through your years at Cornell. We wish you much success and welcome your suggestions for improvement of the handbook. Fran Shumway Director, Engineering Advising Beth Howland Associate Director, Engineering Advising Melissa Hutson Assistant Director, Engineering Advising 2 Responsibility for Meeting Degree Requirements Ultimately, students are responsible for understanding the degree requirements for their Majors and for planning their courses of study accordingly. They should consult the appropriate undergraduate ofFce (listed on pages 10–11) for more speciFc information. The Major will provide a consultant who can answer speciFc questions and make binding decisions relating to the fulFllment of degree requirements. ¡aculty advisors will assist in course selection, but they are not responsible for ensuring that the courses selected meet degree requirements. That is the responsibility of the student. 3 Contents Preface...
