"To boldly go … " -Captain James T. Kirk, Star Trek
You have to appreciate the simplicity of the mission of the USS Enterprise, Star Trek’s iconic starship: To boldly go where no one has gone before. When it comes to its teaching and learning mission, RIT shares this passion for exploration. It was, after all, the first institution to offer a number of unique degrees such as software engineering, microelectronics engineering, biotechnology, and a Ph.D. in imaging science to name a few. And in the 90s it was a leader in online education, offering one of the first online program in the country. Innovation and teaching go hand-in-hand at RIT.
