Student Spotlight

  • Amanda Murray

    RIT has given me an experience that I will never forget. Here, I had the opportunity to do everything that I could ever dream of and more. I got to challenge myself with captivating elective classes in my major, as well as have the experience of playing in the Women’s Soccer Division 3 NCAA tournament, twice. The school has nudged me outside my comfort zone so that I could find new experiences. Biomedical engineering has so many opportunities encompassed in it because it is a mixture of so many things. The co-op program allowed me to explore different fields and find the one that’s right for me. RIT has given me the opportunity to get all the things that I wanted to get out of college at one school, from the social experience, to athletics and academics. There are so many different clubs here to get involved in depending on your interests. No matter what you are interested in, you can find it here.

    So far, I absolutely hands down have loved every minute I have spent at RIT. Our advisors and mentors are extremely helpful and flexible in our department. They make sure that everything I want to do and experience can be done with the short time I have here, and believe me it does fly. They are also extremely helpful and supportive when we are searching for coops or internships and jobs. It is a lot of hard work, but a lot of fun too! RIT is filled with great people, experiences, and opportunities, and for me choosing biomedical engineering at RIT was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

  • Kelly Dunn

    My top three reasons for choosing RIT were the athletic facilities, the environment of the campus, and being part of a new major. RIT’s athletic facilities are far superior to comparable schools; in fact, I liked them so much that I applied to work there and I am now a student manager of the facilities. RIT is not like other technical institutes or engineering schools; the community is all connected and very friendly, and there is a niche for every single type of person. Finally, as a BME, the faculty is amazing. They are always willing to answer questions, talk in general, and they will go the extra mile to make sure you understand fundamental concepts. I have never once regretted my decision to come to RIT, and I am beginning to feel sad that I only have three semesters left here.

    Regardless of the hard work that the program demands, I love Biomedical Engineering because we are trained to be engineers first which gives the perspective needed to analyze and understand the majority of the situations and problems within biomedical engineering as well as outside of the field. Biomedical Engineering is a relatively new program at RIT and I am extremely proud to be a part of its growth knowing that present classes are creating an improved solid foundation for future students. The faculty and staff are motivators and drive my thirst for knowledge within this field. Although I do not know what exactly I would like to pursue after graduation, every class, co-op, and experiences at RIT in all aspects, help me assess what would fit me the best in the future.

  • Mallory Rauch

    When I became a part of the Biomedical Engineering program at RIT, I knew that I was in the right place. The department faculty and staff are an incredibly supportive team as they prepare students for the exciting challenges they will face in their future careers. Through classes, co-op, and working with the Honors Program I have been continuously inspired to learn and be the best that I can be. I’m very happy and proud to go to RIT!

  • Morgan Stoessel

    As a child, I knew I wanted to be an engineer, although it wasn't until an RIT Open House that I knew what kind of engineering I wanted to pursue. As soon as biomedical engineering flashed across the screen, I knew I had found my niche. Being an engineering student at RIT has been an incredible blessing. RIT has provided me with many opportunities to grow and learn as an individual throughout my career here. I have been able to help pave the way for future biomedical engineering students with support from faculty and staff who are willing to go the extra mile to maximize a student's educational experience. Through the co-op program, I have been able to apply the knowledge I have gained in the classroom to the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. Although the course load is challenging, I have matured personally and professionally. It is obvious now that choosing RIT was one of the best decisions I could have made for my future.

  • Tyler Roneker

    I knew that I wanted Biomedical Engineering because it combined both science and engineering along with the chance of bettering someone else’s life.  With more than 200 different clubs and student organizations ranging from the Leadership Institute to Dumbledore’s Army, there is a something here for everyone!  The small class sizes really make the classes more hands-on and personable as you are not one of 200 students trying to get your question through to the professor!  The faculty truly care about their students inside and outside of the classroom and are always available for help or even just to talk. Choosing RIT Biomedical Engineering was probably one of the best choices I have ever made and am excited to see what other opportunities will arise throughout the rest of my time here!
