Please join us as we bring Rensselaer—and the paradigm of The New Polytechnic—to the West Coast with an afternoon of immersive activities designed to showcase our talented students, our remarkable faculty and their groundbreaking research, our new academic programs, and our expanding opportunities for students to explore their unique passions and interests.

I look forward to sharing with you some of the exciting ways the Rensselaer community is changing the world as we move into our third century of leadership in education, discovery, and innovation.
