Education for Working Professionals

Master of Science in Engineering Science

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Master of Science in Engineering Science program allows you to design a degree that is personalized to your specific career and educational goals. As a leader, you have aspirations – and for those aspirations to become a reality, you have to address the gaps in your education and experience. After you complete your choice of three certificates, you execute an Integrative Project that brings together everything you’ve learned in the individual certificates into a comprehensive whole.

Designed for working professionals, the program’s blended, online delivery is taught by Rensselaer’s outstanding and highly-ranked engineering faculty. It provides opportunities to learn through application, as you choose projects that help propel you forward in your career.
