Undergraduate Education

Rensselaer is deeply committed to its undergraduate programs and to the “application of knowledge to the common purposes of life” as envisioned by our founder, Amos Eaton. We provide an education that is transformational: transformational in its approach to pedagogy, and transformational because our alumni help solve the world’s most challenging problems. Our faculty and staff are enthusiastic about undergraduate education both in and outside of the classroom and seek to include students in extracurricular design and research projects. Our undergraduates are known for their intellectual rigor, ability to solve complex problems, teamwork experience, leadership skills, and interdisciplinary view.
