Let us introduce you to your teachers.
We educate, challenge and support our students. We use a combination of theory and practice. We believe in the value of teaching. We hold doctorates from the some of the most prestigious universities in the country. We enable our students to become creative, sophisticated thinkers, active citizens and effective leaders in a global community. We prepare our students to be successful chemists, engineers, physicists, mathematicians and continual learners in an ever-changing society. We are the teachers of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.
Yes, we said teachers.
One of the biggest differences between Rose-Hulman and other colleges is that we ask our faculty to do three things: teach, teach and teach. Doing research and writing papers is encouraged because it helps our faculty members gain new insights and make their classes more relevant and interesting. But for a professor to place research ahead of teaching? Never at Rose-Hulman.
The bottom line? With 99% of our faculty holding Ph.D. degrees, you'll be taught by someone who really understands the subject, not a graduate student looking to pick up a few extra bucks. Our classes are small with a student/faculty ratio of 13 to 1. And our professors are chosen on their ability to teach and relate to you, the student.
