Our faculty includes some of the world’s most highly celebrated and accomplished scientists

 

Among our ranks are a Nobel laureate, two National Academy members, and fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the American Physics Society, and other professional societies. All have achieved the highest attainable degree within their field.

At Rensselaer, students have the opportunity to work with faculty in cutting-edge research that appears regularly in the world’s most prestigious journals – including publications such as Nature, Science, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Many faculty draw upon the Institute's major interdisciplinary research centers in their work, providing faculty and students alike with access to world-class research tools. In the classroom, faculty support students in hands-on learning, with innovative teaching techniques and frequent one-to-one attention.
