Welcome to RIT's Corporate Gateway

Many believe that innovation and creativity are the competitive advantages that the U.S. brings to the global economy. The Rochester Institute of Technology has long been valued for its success in educating students for productive careers. Now, RIT is quickly becoming valued for its ability to reinforce America's greatest competitive advantages—creativity, innovation, and invention.

RIT is internationally recognized for academic leadership in computing, engineering, imaging technology, sustainability, and fine and applied arts. With 17,000 full- and part-time students, more than 900 faculty members with practical and theoretical expertise, and over 50 research laboratories, RIT has the resources your business needs to be successful.

RIT was created by a group of Rochester-based corporate founders. We continue their legacy by working closely with corporate partners through research collaborations, cooperative education and recruitment opportunities, workforce and executive training, and strategic giving opportunities.
