What Should I Know About Online Learning at Rose-Hulman?

Our mission is to provide the world's best undergraduate science, engineering, and mathematics education in an environment of individual attention and support—regardless of the way in which our courses are delivered. Online courses let students learn and make progress toward their degrees with fewer boundaries on their time and their physical location. Our online courses have the same small section sizes as our face-to-face courses, and our faculty are focused on the individual success of each student no matter whether a course is taught online, face-to-face, or using a mix of information delivery modes. 

In online courses, you’ll communicate with your professor and fellow students using electronic tools, like emails, posts in online discussion forums, creating collaborative electronic documents, chat or IM, online reflective journals, and more. You’ll likely be assigned readings, homework, and projects; you’ll likely be asked to watch instructional videos created and/or selected by your professor; you might be asked to take quizzes or tests online. Experience in learning, communicating, and working with others online is important preparation for your future professional development. Just ask any of our alumni who work on multidisciplinary, global teams!
