Master's Thesis “A Prototype Analog Wideband High Sensitivity Fiber-Optic Link”
Today’s Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is combining its legacy of leadership in technology-based education with an expanding emphasis on the pursuit of discovery.
From its campuses in Troy, N.Y., and Hartford, Conn., to locations around the globe, the impact of Rensselaer, its students, faculty, and alumni, is felt in the way people live, work, and play. Engagement
RPI is widely recognized for the effectiveness of its hands-on approach to undergraduate education. Rensselaer’s classrooms are a model for intellectual engagement and the interaction of students and faculty. In both curriculum reform and creative use of new teaching techniques and technologies, Rensselaer’s leadership in interactive learning
has helped to further transform the way we teach and learn. Discovery
Throughout its history
, Rensselaer research
has produced ground-breaking work in a broad range of important areas. Early RPI engineering graduates
built bridges that linked people, commerce, and communities. Today, Rensselaer people are building the bridges that will link the world to the promises of new technologies. The collaborative efforts of our students, faculty, corporate partners, and government agencies are generating a new momentum in research and the development of innovative technologies, including biotechnology
, information technology
, and nanotechnology
. Creating and applying knowledge, and interdisciplinary inquiry, with a rigorous approach to solving problems, Rensselaer men and Rensselaer women are fulfilling the university’s role as a place where people find innovative solutions to complex technical challenges. Entrepreneurship
A “can do” attitude for getting the job done is a well-known component of Rensselaer’s DNA. That ability to think and do has characterized the RPI graduate since 1824. At Rensselaer, the popular business definition of “entrepreneurship” has been redefined and broadened in such a way that it transcends traditional boundaries as a way of thinking
and approaching challenges creatively. In addition to their commercial successes, innumerable Rensselaer students, faculty and alumni have combined vision, analytical capabilities and an entrepreneurial way of thinking to change the world
for the better through a wide range of important contributions.
