Engineering Student Project Teams – Recruiting & Applications

Joining an Engineering Student Project Team offers students the opportunity to become part of a diverse, collaborative, and engaging community of students from across Cornell.

Spring 2024 Recruiting

Most teams recruit new students heavily in the fall semester, but many also recruit new members in the spring semester. For the fall, teams follow split timeline with separate deadlines for upperclass and first-year/transfer students. For the spring, teams follow a shared timeline, outlined below.  


Students that decide they would like to join a project team will complete a two-part application process.

Step one: Complete the General Project Team Application

This application is common for all Engineering Student Project Teams and collects basic identifying and demographic information. Applicants select which team(s) they are applying to on this general form. This basic information is shared with specific teams once the application period is closed.

Step two: Complete the team-specific application for each team that you are applying to.
