Every year, the Engineering Student Council sends out a morale survey to engineering students. The purpose of the survey is to gauge the general sentiment of the Cooper engineering student body. Although student representatives talk with their engineering sections on a regular basis, the survey enables the student council to compare the opinions of different grades and majors. 252 students completed the survey this year. A few interesting general results were as follows. More than 200 students picked full-tuition scholarship as a contributing factor on deciding whether to attend Cooper and more than 160 students picked Cooper’s quality of program as a contributing factor. Over half of the students who completed the survey are not optimistic about Cooper as an academic institution over the next 10 years and beyond. At the moment, the majority of the student body is happy at Cooper. If you would like to see what are favorite and least favorite things engineering students chose about our school or what contributes to their work ethic, look out for the results of the survey soon!
