Since our founding in 1955, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Hartford, CT location has conferred graduate degrees upon some of the finest working professionals in the world, which is proven by the stunning quality and diversity of Rensselaer at Hartford Alumni employers.
In keeping with our origins as United Technology Corporation's very first learning partner, our alumni can be found throughout organizations such as Pratt & Whitney, United Technologies, Carrier Corporation, UTC Climate, Controls & Security, UTC Aerospace Systems (now Collins Aerospace), Otis Elevator Co., Hamilton Sundstrand, and United Technologies Research Center.
Of course, United Technology Corporation is not the only aerospace company where Rensselaer at Hartford Alumni are active. Of the 873 alumni that LinkedIn identifies as working in the aerospace industry, Boeing, GE Aviation, MD Helicopters, GKN Aerospace, Barnes Aerospace, Telephonics, Sikorsky, The Barden Corporation, Horst Engineering, Willis Lease Finance, Esterline Techologies, Whitcraft Group, and ATI Forged Products are all represented.
In an obviously related field with lots of cross-over to aerospace, 229 alums work in military and defense at companies like Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Raytheon, Harris Corporation, Leonardo DRS, Sonalysts, BAE Systems, N2 Imaging, Sig Sauer, Honeywell, Inrad Optics, General Dynamics Electric Boat, Draper, Dassault, L3 Technologies, and even the Naval Undersea War Center (without a LinkedIn page for obvious reasons).
Given the technical mastery for which RPI is historically renowned, it's not surprising that our Alumni work for some of most accomplished companies in tech, including IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, SAS, Red Hat, Dell, Broadcom, Adobe, Google, Salesforce, Apple, Hewlett Packard, and Tetra Tech.
With decades of Education for Working Professionals from Rensselaer at Hartford, it's no wonder our Alumni can be found in the insurance and financial services, with representation at Anthem, Aetna, MassMutual, Cigna, ING, Travelers Insurance, Bank of America, Chubb, Liberty Mutual, Fidelity Investments, Lincoln Financial Group, Merrill Lynch, and, naturally, The Hartford.
Bottom line, a degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute at Hartford puts you in good company...and good companies!
