Something magical happens in the halls of Olin Hall and across Cornell’s campus. Cornell engineering students work hard – really hard, but in the midst of late nights and labs that don't go as planned, so much is shared and bonds are formed. CBE alumni stay connected to Cornell and to each other. Sometimes it’s at reunions or visits with dear friends. Sometimes it’s in a room full people at a multi-generational alumni event, or at an Entrepreneurship@Cornell event. Or it’s back at Cornell, giving a lecture, helping students network their way to their first job, sharing expertise as an advisor, or helping to raise funds to keep CBE thriving.
From 1933, when we graduated our first chemical engineers to today, when we forge new paths as the Smith School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, CBE alumni are an exceptional cadre of people. From presidents of oil and gas companies to vice presidents of electronic components, from those creating safer food supplies to those reaching people in need through the Peace Corps, our graduates have transformed their Cornell education into achievements that impact the world.
We value all that you bring to Cornell and one another – your special expertise, your leadership, your kindness, and your gifts that help to keep Cornell CBE strong.
We hope that you will visit this website often to catch up with old friends, to network with other Olin Hall alumni, and to celebrate the achievements of fellow ChemE Cornellians.
