Indisputably Rensselaer is right at the center of some of the most ground- breaking research and revelations taking place in the world of science and the arts today. Through our Institute-wide platforms and the myriad research centers across campus faculty students postdocs and research scientists extensively collaborate and innovate. In the next 10 years the Institute aims to raise its research spending to 250 million annually. As an undergraduate you can be part of all this. Each year more than 700 students participate in the Undergraduate Research Program which is open to all students. The program provides you with the opportunity to make research an integral part of your Rensselaer under- graduate education. For more information visit CURTIS R. PRIEM EXPERIMENTAL MEDIA AND PERFORMING ARTS CENTER EMPAC Perhaps the most iconic campus feature is EMPAC which opened its doors in 2008. Encased in a glass exoskeleton with a soaring atrium-like space between it and the inner building it is one of the most technically sophisticated arts venues in the world and certainly one of the most acoustically perfect. CENTER FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY AND INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES CBIS When it opened in 2004 this exceptional research facility transformed the look and the profile of Rensselaer. The 218000- square-foot super energy-efficient center features office space for 400 researchers and over 71500 square feet of laboratory space. To encourage collaboration among researchers the Biotechnology Center also features 5830 square feet of seminar space and 5200 square feet of auditorium and gallery space. CBIS is in fact a whole world waiting for you to discover it. INSTITUTE FOR DATA EXPLORATION AND APPLICATIONS IDEA Rensselaer tackles the challenges and opportunities of big data bringing together the wealth of data science high performance computing predictive analytics data visualization and cognitive research that are at the heart of the Institute. IDEA researchers will explore innovative new theories technologies and applications in health-care analytics business intelligence built and natural environments virtual and augmented reality systems cybersecurity applications and more. CENTER FOR COMPUTATIONAL INNOVATIONS CCI The CCI houses the most powerful supercomputer at any private American academic institution and the 43rd most powerful system in the world according to the most recent TOP500 list. Its ability to perform more than one quadrillion calculations per second to sift through vast amounts of data uniquely positions Rensselaer as a world leader in data-related research innovation and education. rensselaer research rensselaer research 47
