Computing is integrated into the curriculum here.
All undergraduate students are required to have a laptop computer that meets the requirements of our Mobile Computing Program.
Laptops are a way of working, communicating, and analyzing. Picture it: you’re in a classroom, in the library, in a lab, in the student union, or back in your room it doesn’t matter you can instantly access class materials, your notes, and all of your personal files (not to mention e-mail and the Web) using a wireless connection or one of the thousands of network ports all over campus.
We offer a laptop package which includes a state-of-the-art computer loaded with a customized software image.
You’ll receive the greatest value for your dollar and on-campus repair and consulting support to help you get the most out of your laptop.
Benefits of participating in the Rensselaer Mobile Computing Program include:
- Value: In partnership with Lenovo, we’re able to offer this laptop package at a substantially discounted price.
- Commonality: Your classmates and instructors will be using the same system and software.
- Appropriateness: The laptop comes ready for your Rensselaer course work and is configured for easy connection to the Rensselaer network.
- Service and Support: The laptop is fully supported by on-campus consulting and repair services.
In late spring, we will announce the laptop selected for the Class of 2019. We will also send you the details about our very competitive purchase plan and provide online ordering information at that time. Laptop packages are distributed in late August during Navigating Rensselaer & Beyond.
