CEAA Group Award

CEAA Group Award-1btjlnp

Attached above is a call for nominations for the CEAA Student Group Leadership Award. This award is available to both undergraduate and graduate student groups.

The Cornell Engineering Alumni Association and the College of Engineering sponsor a Student Group Leadership Award each year.  This annual award recognizes one or more of the student organizations that have worked diligently and creatively to improve their activities.  CEAA provides a modest monetary award to winning organizations to provide seed money for future events.  The number and amount of awards may vary, but the total allocation is $1,000.  Generally speaking, a group will not win an award two years in a row.

Complete applications, including advisor endorsement, should be turned in to the Undergraduate Programs Office in 167 Olin Hall or emailed to crp5@cornell.edu by Tuesday, March 6, 2018.  Applications received after this time will not be eligible for consideration by the selection committee.

Join the AguaClara Team!

Want to use engineering knowledge to address real world problems? Interested in hands-on research and engineering design?

Join the AguaClara project team and revolutionize water treatment to make safe, clean drinking water available to those in need.


AguaClara Information Sessions

Wednesday (1/24) and Thursday (1/25)

2:55 – 4:10 PM

Hollister 366


We are looking to recruit Mechanical Engineering students for work with our AguaClara Infrastructure and Design Engine (AIDE). AIDE involves working on the design engine used by AguaClara engineers to design all water treatment plants. This involves multiple coding projects and requires knowledge of Python. Students will also learn to work with Fusion 360 and about AguaClara Technologies. The goal will be for the team to create a final Fusion 360 drawing and the team will eventually get to see plants that they developed code for being built.

AIDE Draw is a subteam that creates parameterized templates of an AguaClara plant’s unit processes. We are looking for students with a good knowledge of CAD, preferably Fusion 360, and willingness to learn about AguaClara treatment processes.

Since 2005, Cornell students have designed 16 AguaClara water treatment plants which have been constructed in Honduras by our partner, Honduran NGO Agua Para el Pueblo. We have also expanded our efforts to India and have begun construction of a plant in Nicaragua. Join the team to contribute to these and future projects!

Whether finding new ways to capture and sense the world around us, advancing form factors, or improving interaction methods, our Hardware team is making people’s lives better through technology. We’re excited to announce the launch of our Hardware Engineering Internship. This is a six month program (June – December). Applications will be accepted starting January 5th. Please feel free to set up a job alert at com/students.


Hardware/Electrical and Mechanical Engineer, Full-time

  • As a Hardware Engineer, you will design, develop and deploy next generation consumer hardware. You have a solid hardware board design background and knowledge of system architecture for mobile products. You will define board layout constraints and requirements, oversee physical engineering design layout, and work cross-functionally on system integration. You will also work cross-functionally with mechanical design, operation, and product to deliver systems to production. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, please apply here!

Thank You 2!

Good Morning, All,

It is certainly a summer of change. I too am transitioning in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department and will no longer be supporting Project Teams.

I want to thank all of you for what has been one of the most tremendous experiences of my professional life. I have been immensely proud to be a part of the Project Team program for these past 9 years; I could (and have been known to) go on at great length regarding your determination, dedication, innovation, and outstanding talents as team members. You are an amazing group of people.

Mike Thompson, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs, will be your point of contact going forward.

I wish you all the best in everything and will see many of you in the Fall.

Your other #1 Fan!!


To the most exceptional, dedicated and motivated students,

For the past 4 years, it has been a truly experiential learning endeavor for me but alas I am off to new adventures.  You and the Teams will remain important to me and I will continue to follow your success!  Please connect with me on LinkedIn if you would like me to support you professionally going forward.

Your #1 Fan, Rebecca
