Rensselaer County is home to a number of distinguished institutions of higher education. One major advantage for a business that locates in Rensselaer County is the proximity of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, one of the premier science and technology universities in the world, Russell Sage College, one of the nation's first colleges for women, and Hudson Valley Community College (HVCC), a member of the State University of New York System and a nationally ranked community college.

These institutions offer excellent opportunities for technical assistance, specialized training, and support. HVCC, in particular, is committed to providing training needed by business and industry within the region and frequently establishes customized training to meet the needs of a particular company.
