MSE Strategic Plan 2023

The college is un-siloing engineering and unlocking innovation through the implementation of Cornell Engineering 2030. Our new strategic plan builds upon our established reputation for rigor and excellence — and our deeply ingrained culture of collaborating across disciplines — to forge new paradigms for engineering education, research, and technology translation.

Visit the Cornell Engineering 2030 website to learn more about the college’s plans for the future, including for the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

MSE has identified three integrated strategic priorities, which leverage our existing strengths and include bold new ideas. These priorities will steer faculty hiring, infrastructure projects, curriculum development, diversity and inclusion programs, and industrial engagement strategies. When coupled with our core competencies, these priorities form a blueprint for returning our department to the top five MSE departments in the country within the next ten years.
