When Stephen Van Rensselaer and Amos Eaton founded Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1824 they placed the application of science to the common purposes of life at the heart of their mission. That credo continues today as Rensselaer faculty and students attempt to conceive a better world. They are addressing some of the most pressing challenges we facein energy food water human health and sustainability. Here students are encouraged to participate in undergraduate research with world-renowned faculty on topics ranging from new cancer treatments to better fuel cells from earthquake engineering to improved transmission of electricity from smart lighting to better batteries. We hope you will enjoy international experiences as well alerting you to problems around the world that are waiting to be solved. The School of Engineering has so much to offer. First of all you will develop a solid quantitative foundationbut this knowledge will be set in the broader context of an education that honors the liberal arts. We want our engineers to be educated in the humanities and the social sciences and have strong communication skills. You will learn to work on diverse multidisciplinary teams and will gain the confidence and technical expertise you need to design innovative products processes and systems. When youre ready to take your ideas to the real world youll do so with a well-honed sense of social and ethical responsibility. In fact youll be ready for anything that comes your way.
