Rensselaer's degree programs are accessed using Rensselaer’s digital classroom – the RensselaerStudio. Courses are completed through projects that address real-world business challenges, with opportunities to learn through application. Projects involve the context of work to perfect one’s abilities while providing value back to the employer. Participants have the option to take just one course, a certificate, to stack certificates into a degree, or to enroll directly in the master’s program of their choice. These programs are taught by Rensselaer Faculty Practitioners with industry expertise who advise, mentor, and encourage new approaches to one’s work.
