Special Graduate Opportunities

International Scholars Program

The International Scholars Program (ISP) is a 10-week intensive educational experience at the graduate level that includes four-week-long visits to Rome, Italy, and Shanghai, China, for a total of eight weeks abroad. It is offered during summer term. The 12- or 15-credit-hour course load can be used as part of a number of degrees at the Master’s level, mainly in the Schools of Management and Engineering. It can be used as part of a co-terminal degree.

The ISP has two tracks to choose from: (1) Global Enterprise Management, and (2) Energy Systems Engineering. Each track includes nine credit hours of course work and a three-credit-hour project. Many projects have corporate sponsorship, and numerous site visits and local guest speakers are integrated with the curriculum. Rensselaer Professors travel with the students and interact often with them in both classroom and informal settings.

Some degrees that can incorporate the ISP are: Master of Business Administration, M.S. in Management, M.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering, The M.Eng. in Environmental Engineering, and the M.Eng in Systems Engineering & Technology Management. The department offering the targeted degree should be contacted for further information.
