The motto of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is "Why not change the world?" At Rensselaer’s Education for Working Professionals Program, we've taken that challenge to heart and have launched the most innovative graduate programs for the highest achievers at leading companies around the world.

Rensselaer's leadership led a reconstruction of our programs by sitting down with our stakeholders—students, alumni, and the companies they work for—to find out what worked and what didn't, what they needed and how best to deliver it.

The result is online, project-based learning mentored by instructors with industry expertise. Courses address the actual challenges faced by our students' real-world employers while simultaneously incorporating the skills and discipline to maintain a fulfilling work-life balance.

Online courses are offered in the following areas:
