Today, more and faster than ever before, new and exciting discoveries are augmenting human knowledge of this world and the vast reaches beyond it. Our faculty and graduates are leading the way in making many of these important discoveries.

Rensselaer prepares students for a wide variety of careers in the firmly established areas of mathematics and the natural sciences — while forging ahead to develop excellent new programs in the emerging fields of information technology, bioinformatics and molecular biology. A new Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies building is emphasizing additional research in these fields.

The School of Science faculty consists of some of the world’s most highly educated and accomplished scientists. Included among them are a Nobel laureate and two National Academy members. In addition, many are fellows in their professional societies, and all have achieved the highest attainable degree in their fields.

At Rensselaer, this esteemed faculty works closely with undergraduates through both instructional and research programs. Rensselaer has a long-standing commitment to undergraduate teaching, and Institute professors have authored some of the most widely used science and mathematics textbooks.

Also providing unique opportunities to its students are a number of School of Science administered research centers:
