Rensselaer Tech

  1. Jun 18, 2009 #1
    I am planning on going to graduate school to obtain my PhD in either mechanical or aerospace engineering, I would eventually like to either become a professor at a university or work at an organization such as NASA doing research. I have been looking at a lot of schools and I was wondering if anyone out there has an opinion on Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I think they have some really interesting research but I have never heard much about them. I cant think of anyone I have met or anyone I have heard about that has gone to this school. I am curious, is it a good school, why havent I heard much about them (is it just me?), what kind of careers do its graduates generally pursue and anything else that might be relevant.

    I believe that there's a regular member of this forum who teaches there.
