Our Mission

The mission of the Rensselaer Technology Park campus is to attract a diversity of technologies, especially those technologies reflective of the varied technological strengths of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, to develop collaborations that will make a positive impact on society.

A fundamental objective of the Rensselaer Technology Park campus is to develop interactions between tenant companies and the university, especially partnerships with signature thrust research initiatives. Such interactions enrich the educational environment of the university and help the companies stay on the leading edge of their technologies.

“Rensselaer has led the positive transformation of technology, society, culture for nearly 200 years. From massive civil engineering projects like the Transcontinental Railroad, to space exploration, to today's epic changes emerging from biotechnology, computer simulation, and other 21st-century disciples, the Institute has contributed ideas, direction, and innovation to meet humanity's challenges and opportunities.”
