Each May RIT presents a day long festival showcasing the innovative and creative spirit of RIT students, faculty and staff.  The Astrophysical Sciences and Technology graduate students present a new exhibit there each year.  See the Imagine RIT pages above for information about present and past exhibits.

 
 
The Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation (CCRG) is a COS Research Center and a Research Center of Excellence at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) dedicated to research at the frontiers of numerical relativity and relativistic astrophysics, gravitational-wave physics, its connection to experiments and observations, and high-performance computation and scientific visualization. 
The CCRG also frequently hosts visiting speakers and runs a lunch talk series as well as a journal club.
 
The Center for Detectors designs, develops, and implements new advanced sensor technologies through collaboration with academic researchers, industry engineers, government scientists, and university/college students. The CfD operates four laboratories and has approximately a dozen funded projects to advance detectors in a broad array of applications, e.g. astrophysics, biomedical imaging, Earth system science, and inter-planetary travel.  Visit their website for details on news and events.
