The New Polytechnic

For nearly 200 years, Rensselaer graduates have created innovative products, systems, and solutions that have made the world a better place. Today, we recognize that many global issues are so great, they can no longer be adequately addressed by even the most talented person working alone. “The New Polytechnic” refers to an emerging paradigm for higher education in which students and faculty across our five schools work together to tackle the key challenges of our time—such as health, food, water, national security, and climate change—using the latest technologies and tools, many of which were developed here on campus. More than an approach to learning, the New Polytechnic is designed to expand your creative vision and prepare you to make a global impact. Let’s get started.

Unparalleled Achievement

“Why not change the world?” is not just a tagline; it is our way of life. Since 1824, our students have been pushed to dream big and take chances. Join a legacy of innovators that includes a Nobel laureate, a NASA deputy administrator, an NFL defensive coordinator, and the creators of the Ferris wheel and the digital camera—to name a few. How will you leave your mark?

Learning Driven by Original Research

At Rensselaer, research is a team sport. You will gain a broader understanding of your world (and your major) through interdisciplinary projects addressing some of the world’s most pressing technological challenges—from energy security and sustainable development to biotechnology and human health.
