Across the institution, faculty and students develop close, mentoring relationships and make lifelong connections that guide career success. Clarkson produces remarkably effective engineers, scientists, health professionals, business people, and creative leaders who easily engage “What’s next?”. We do it by creating an exceptionally demanding, boundary-spanning experience in an entrepreneurial community known for its core values, technology intensive resources, and appreciation of the Adirondack Park just outside our doorstep. Clarksonians from around the globe design new products, start new businesses, and come up with the ideas that make the world a healthier, wealthier, and more humane place. We educate the leaders who defy convention and move the world forward. One in five alumni is already a CEO, president or senior executive of a company or business. At Clarkson, we know that new technologies, emerging fields and expanding career opportunities require new approaches to learning.
