Mock Interview Night

Mock Interview Night offers architecture, art, and engineering students an opportunity to engage in multiple rounds of practice interviews with experienced alumni. This program is offered twice each academic year. Students receive constructive feedback from their alumni interviewers and the chance to network with accomplished alumni. It is sponsored by the Office of Alumni Affairs and Development and the Center for Career Development.

While Mock Interview Night occurs every October and February, students are encouraged to set up individual mock interviews with a career counselor year-round by contacting the Center for Career Development.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
