As one of the world's leading technological institutions, Rochester Institute of Technology (NY) is a vibrant, connected community that is home to more than 13,500 diverse, ambitious and creative undergraduate students from over 100 countries. RIT offers an incredible array of academic programs; a diverse, committed, and accessible faculty; sophisticated facilities; and, an unusual emphasis on experiential learning.

RIT's academic programs attract designers, artists, photographers and filmmakers on one hand - and, scientists, engineers, computing scientists and entrepreneurs on the other. When these "left-brain and right-brain" students engage with outstanding faculty, a learning environment is created where innovation and creativity flourish.

Since 1912, the hallmark of an RIT education has been experiential learning. RIT was among the first universities in the world to offer cooperative education. Last year, more than 3,500 co-op students alternated periods of study on campus with paid employment in nearly 2,000 firms across the United States and overseas. Today, experiential learning also includes internships, study abroad, and undergraduate research.

RIT attracts students from every state as well as 1,500+ international students. Embodying our commitment to diversity, more than 2,000 students of color have elected to study at RIT. Adding a unique social and educational dynamic, more than 1,300 deaf and hard-of-hearing students are supported by RIT's National Technical Institute for the Deaf. The variety of backgrounds and perspectives represented in our community enriches the living and learning experience for all.
