1st Annual Major Cornell Major Tournament Round IV

Click here for larger bracket

CU Nooz is proud to announce the 1st Annual Major Cornell Major Tournament! We’re down to 8 undergraduate majors battling it out to determine once and for all which major is the most likely to get votes in an arbitrary competition. Look over the bracket, read up on what each major is, and vote for who you’d like to see move on to the next round! Round 4 voting ends this Sunday. After Sunday, the Round 4 winners will be announced, and voting for the next round will open up. In the end, the last major standing will receive a wonderful prize in the form of three feature CU Nooz articles. Happy fighting!


Round IV voting has closed. Here are the results! Winners are bolded.

CHEME (4) vs. SES (10)
Chemical Engineering: We are committed to producing the best of the best when it comes to Google-ing stuff about chemicals.
Science of Earth Systems: Our department focuses primarily on Earth, but if you want to go look at some other planets we won’t stop you.

MECHE (1) vs. AEP (11)
Mechanical Engineering: This major is directed at students with a curious mind, an appreciation for detail, and for people who constantly remind fellow airplane passengers that the fact that they are 30,000 feet in the air right now is absolutely incredible.
Engineering Physics: Has life been too easy for you up until now? Then do we have a major for you!

ORIE (6) vs. CEE (4)
Operations Research: We are proud to be one of the top-ranked operations research and information engineering departments in the country, leading in categories such as “Number of times prospective students need to look up what exactly people do in this major”.
Civil Engineering: The Civil Engineering department has a storied history, beginning when Ezra Cornell first realized that building the entire university at the bottom of a gorge was a bad move.

CS (2) vs. ARCH (4)
Architecture: The tallest skyscrapers. The lowest one-story houses. The mid-range 20-story buildings you might find in Tampa Bay or Ottawa. These are the things Cornell architects make.
Computer Science: if (student.major == “Computer Science”){ while(true){ System.out.println(“Entrepreneurship”); } }.
