CAU Study Tour: Silicon Valley—A Cornell Insider's Tech Tour

Monday, February 11, 2019

Silicon Valley

February 11-15, 2019

Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of some of the major tech companies in Silicon Valley in the informed company of Greg Morrisett, dean of the Faculty of Computing and Information Science.

We'll meet with Cornell alumni who play pivotal roles in powerful Silicon Valley companies, including technology giant Google and Autodesk, which produces CAD software. In the process, we'll gain insiders' knowledge about procedures, speed of product development, and the distinctive cultures of these and other tech organizations.

During visits to The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose and the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, we will absorb the backstory of this fiercely dynamic industry. Greg himself will give talks that place our visits in helpful context. In the course of our stay, we will learn much about companies that not only explode traditional conceptions of the work place, but revolutionize the very world in which we now live.
