This is part of our series profiling different graduate degree programs and graduate schools at U.S. universities for international students on an F1 Visa or J1 Visa. This week we profile the Cornell University Engineering School.
Founded in 1865, Cornell University is another historic Ivy League School located in Ithaca, New York.
- Ivy League Schools are among some of the best in the United States and are excellent options for international students looking for an engineering degree.
- Located closer to Syracuse, New York than New York City, Ithaca offers a look at both the scenic country and busy city life.
Cornell Engineering prides itself on helping its students become problem solvers and bringing together some of the best and brightest minds to develop breakthrough technologies. The College of Engineering has been around almost as long as the University, since 1870. The total graduate program enrollment is 2,115 and approximately 58% of that population is made up of international students.
