Rensselaer’s challenge to its students is, “Why not change the world?™” The Greek mathematician Archimedes did just that saying, “Give me a place to stand and I will move the Earth.”  This is in reference to his formally stating the correct mathematical principals of the lever that would make moving the Earth possible. Similarly you have a unique opportunity to leverage your skills and abilities to change the world.

The Archimedean program is to engage Rensselaer’s highest achieving students by exposing them to myriad opportunities for academic and personal exploration.
