Cogswell Polytechnical College

Cogswell's hands-on, interdisciplinary approach has been producing industrial strength results for 130 years. Small classes and intimate cultures create engaging settings for students to develop the technical skills, professional disposition and academic foundation they need to step onto teams in dynamic enterprise, studio and startup environments. Many graduates report a seamless transition to the life they desire due to the head start they received at Cogswell. Cogswell's project-based courses are designed to engage the student imagination and develop their skills within the constraints imposed by the resources at their disposal. Students often work in teams whose members have diverse talents and approaches. They iterate on problems in order to develop solutions. In the process, they "create the extraordinary". We provide a safe environment in which students challenge themselves to improve the status quo and foster creative collaboration across disciplines. Our faculty have extensive experience in their given industries and provide relevant, vital counsel to students.Each degree program at Cogswell is guided by Industry Advisory Boards which ensure the currency of academic programs and the effective use of new technologies. Upon graduation, alumni will be armed with a high-quality portfolio and the effective communication skills they need to impress hiring managers and make a difference on professional teams.
