Learning Outcomes

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.

In assembling the attached summaries of the 15 subject foci, it should be observed that each program has circulated drafts amongst their colleagues for approval, and each has agreed that over time they can gather the stated data for self-evaluation.  The express intent is not that each ‘outcome’ be assessed every year, but that each year one or more ‘outcomes’ will be investigated, the feedback from which can then be used to inform the conduct of the program.
