As teacher-scholars at a nationally-recognized research university, Clarkson's globally oriented faculty pursue interdisciplinary research focused on rapidly solving real-world problems for a better future. Examples of signature areas of research include data analytics, STEM and entrepreneurial education, healthy world solutions, and the next generation of advanced materials. Our external network engages 380+ active partners in industry, government agencies, chambers of commerce, and research organizations, affording students access to world relevant problems to pursue with their professors and a direct pipeline to internships and careers after graduation.
Our 4,300 students enroll in one of five New York locations or online and choose among 60 undergraduate and graduate programs in engineering, business, sciences, humanities and arts, education, and health professions that lead to bachelor's, master's, certificate, and doctoral degrees.

The Independent think tank, Brookings Institution, validates the value of a Clarkson education by placing us in the top 10 universities nationwide for increasing our students' lifetime earnings potential. Our commitment to living and lead by example begins with the University Mission Statement, the Vision of a Clarkson Education, and our Clarkson Values.
