About

Rensselaer’s Master of Science in Information Technology balances the study of management strategies and technology leadership with advanced course work in an IT concentration. Eleven concentrations are currently available, ranging from Data Science and Analytivs to Financial Engineering.

Overview

Students who successfully complete this program will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of the fundamentals of one field of science and at least one other field (science or related).
  • Analyze and interpret the scientific literature and scientific presentations in the chosen science field and in the related field(s).
  • Contribute to the formulation of important research questions that cross multiple disciplines and assist in the investigation of their solutions.
  • Communicate research problems and findings both in written and oral formats.
  • Engage with experts from multiple fields to assist in the investigation of important problems that cross these fields.

Programme Structure

Rensselaer strongly emphasizes interdisciplinary research programs that bridge disciplines within the School of Science and between the School of Science and the School of Engineering.

Students within multidisciplinary graduate programs are under the tutelage of faculty from more than one discipline. This highly knowledgeable faculty will determine which courses the student needs, develop appropriate examinations, and supervise research activities. The dean of science appoints the doctoral committee and supervises the student’s overall progress.

Students interested in pursuing such multidisciplinary graduate programs must follow Rensselaer’s standard graduate admission guidelines and must seek approval from faculty representing all disciplines related to their individual programs.
