|We believe that some of the best and most exciting studies lie at the edges of traditional disciplines.
A Rensselaer education is challenging, interactive, and highly relevant. Students immerse themselves in course work that combines theory with learning by experience in unparalleled facilities, using advanced technology. In this environment, students learn to recognize needs, visualize solutions, and initiate change in every realm of society.
Our comprehensive educational and research programs cut across academic disciplines, giving students the opportunity to learn and to grow into world leaders in their chosen fields. Students are encouraged to work in interdisciplinary programs that allow them to combine scholarly work from several departments or schools.
Engaging, interactive learning environments and campuswide opportunities for leadership, communication, and creativity are all hallmarks of a Rensselaer education.
Beyond the classroom, students have extensive opportunities on campus, in the corporate arena, and abroad to broaden their perspective and their experience.
