It was nice working at RPI
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Troy, NYAugust 6, 2014
RPI provides good working environment. My advisor didn't limit my work much and on the other hand he usually gave me more freedom so I could explore myself. My co-workers were very helpful and they are good friends too.

A great motivating environement to work very effectively
Ph.D. Candidate (Current Employee), Troy, NYMarch 10, 2014
Being a graduate student, my responsibility included both coursework and research work in the lab. It was a truly learning experience to be able to learn from the stalwarts in the field of biochemical engineering, and implement them to immediate effect in my research work. With limited experience, I went through some rigorous training from senior lab – more... members, and I must say that I received some great mentorship, which facilitated my learning to a great extent. in the process of carrying out my research successfully, I developed an acute analytical thinking, perseverance and dedication to get the required job done. – less

Great Experience
Program Manager (Current Employee), Troy, NYJune 17, 2013
Higher education has been a wonderful place to develop my career. Supportive of academic endeavors, I successfully accomplished working full time as well as going to school full time.

The hardest part of my current position is the lack of support to function as a revenue making department. Completely short-staffed, I put in a great deal of effort and – more... time with very little help. – less
