The links herein form the strategic plan for the Albert Nerken School of Engineering. It was informed by an assessment of the external environment including topics such as population growth; changing demographics; the global economy; emerging social, political, and cultural influences; the grand challenges facing society; and trends in higher education. It examines the role and influence of technological innovation in society today. It aligns with The Cooper Union’s institutional goals and strategic priorities but with an engineering focus. Faculty and student input and feedback were key to the high quality of the final product and the unanimous adoption by the faculty. This plan reflects the foundational principles and goals that will guide our organization through the year 2025.
