On behalf of our faculty, staff and students, I welcome you to the Rensselaer School of Science.
We are absolutely dedicated to driving the interdisciplinary frontiers of science through research and education. These aren’t just words to us. Within our School we work collaboratively every day to discover answers to humanity’s most compelling questions, to define new fields of study, and to invent solutions to global challenges. We do this working seamlessly across disciplinary boundaries, bringing the best of all fields together to advance science.
In the Rensselaer School of Science, we embrace our educational mission on equal footing to our research mission. Research and education come together in our studentsour undergraduates engage in extensive hands-on, experiential learning, and most experience discovery first-hand through research. Our graduate students are driving interdisciplinary frontiers along with our faculty.

It is this dedication that brought me to Rensselaerafter checking us out on the Web, I hope you’ll come to campus and experience it, too!
