A welcome message from the Dean of Faculty


Stamper, Rick New

Welcome to the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology where our mission is to provide the world's best undergraduate education in engineering, mathematics and science in an environment of individual attention and support.

Engineers, mathematicians and scientists have made tremendous contributions to the well-being of the world.  Few other professions are as capable of turning ideas into reality and having a positive impact on society.  The future continues to be filled with opportunities for creative problem solvers who possess the ability to leverage their understanding of technology and science to address the challenges that face society.  

For those who seek a rewarding career which will allow them to direct their creative energies to improving the world, Rose-Hulman offers an outstanding education characterized by hands-on experiences, engaging professors that share a passion for teaching, talented peers, demanding classes, small class sizes, an exciting set of extra-curricular opportunities, and a campus community that will be a partner in your success.  The demand for Rose-Hulman graduates who fit that description continues to be strong as evidenced by our placement rate (e.g., 98% for the graduating class of 2012) and the starting salaries of our graduates (e.g., average salary of $64,400 for the graduating class of 2012). 

So if you're a talented student or professor who shares our passion for engineering, mathematics and science, I hope you will consider joining our community as we strive to educate engineers, mathematicians and scientists who will make the world a happier, healthier, safer and more productive place.

Best wishes,

Rick Stamper
