School of Engineering

Tomorrow’s engineers must have a skill set and a perspective that surpass those of their predecessors: not just full grounding in science and math, but an understanding of diverse cultures and the aptitude to work in teams and understand complex, interdisciplinary systems.

Students who are intellectually inquisitive and passionate about making a difference find themselves among their peers in the School of Engineering.

High school graduates who have excelled academically, who have demonstrated a commitment to leadership and entrepreneurship through their out-of-classroom activities, and who are self-directed, creative, energetic, and motivated are well positioned to excel in the engineering program at Rensselaer.

Let us prepare you to change the world.

Lead new revolutions in medical imaging, robotics, and nano-structured materials. Create a faster computer. Build a high-tech composite bridge. Develop green technologies for the built environment. Start a new company.

Our studio classrooms provide interactive workstations for computer-aided design and a host of other applications. Students focus their energy and ideas on solving real-world challenges and learn to brainstorm and contribute to team projects.

They also have the opportunity to participate in a co-op experience at one of hundreds of top companies seeking young talent, or to expand their cultural horizons by studying abroad at one of more than 70 universities worldwide.
