November 5th Engineering Open House Postponed

Due to the after effects of Hurricane Sandy the engineering open house scheduled for Monday, November 5 will be postponed. We expect to hold another event before the end of November and will announce a new date as soon as possible.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. At this time, access to mass transit in and around New York City is very limited and without assurances for Monday we must temporarily delay this event.

Thank you for your patience.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
