Events and Competitions Videos

THE CHANGE THE WORLD CHALLENGE is a twice yearly contest to develop innovative, technological ideas with the potential of changing the world. The Challenge is open to all RPI students, but interdisciplinary team submissions are particularly encouraged.

Rock The World is a once a year event conducted as an integral part of the incoming freshman class Navigating Rensselaer and Beyond event in August. Students receive an early introduction to E*ntrepreneurship at Rensselaer, recent entrepreneurial graduates and the program's schedule for the year.

The Class of ’51 Competition encourages undergraduate and graduate students to submit entrepreneurial ideas and awards early development grants each year to individuals or teams who compete and win the competition.
