Curriculum Focus: Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Business
As a nationally ranked research university, we are the institution of choice for more than 4,300 enterprising, high-ability undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in 50+ rigorous academic programs of study. Our faculty are on the leading edge of research of international relevance. Across the institution and its campus locations across New York, faculty and students develop close, mentoring relationships and make lifelong connections that guide career success.
Clarkson produces remarkably effective engineers, scientists, educators, 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 beyond 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. That’s why our students are grounded in the fundamentals but also learn how to successfully manage the unique challenges of today’s complex world.
"The primary objective of The Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) is to help provide a broad range of services to the student, who because of academic and economic circumstances, would otherwise be unable to attend college, yet has the potential and desire to obtain a college degree. HEOP is sponsored jointly by the State Education Department and the College."
"HEOP is funded jointly by the University and the New York State Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program and programming activities are supported, in part, by a grant from the New York State Education Department."
