Research plays an integral role in our vision of the technological university.
At the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century, science and technology are being used to address challenges of unprecedented complexity and scope.
The universities of today are charged with a fundamental role in this processto create the next great innovations, and to educate the next generation of innovators who can address today’s and tomorrow’s most critical challenges. Solutions to scientific and societal challenges begin with insight and discovery, and Rensselaer researchers are leaders in this landscape.
In recent years, we’ve invested top dollar, time, and talent in our many research centers and facilities. Students will work in one or more of these centers with prestigious professors doing real research and projects.
These centers engage graduate and undergraduate students alike in leading-edge research activities, and complement the programs offered through the departments within the School.
