Engineering Programs for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Students
The key to a successful future in engineering is a good education, and the best education is one designed especially for you. That's what you'll find at RIT. What makes RIT the best choice for deaf and hard-of-hearing engineering students?
We are totally committed to your success. As an engineering student at RIT, you can request support services such as sign language interpreting, notetaking, and tutoring/advising.
RIT has the largest staff of professional interpreters of any college program in the world. Last year, we provided more than 90,000 hours of interpreting services.
Trained notetakers record information during your class and laboratory lectures, discussions, and multimedia presentations. Class notes are then placed on the Web so you can easily access them.
Faculty tutors/advisors help answer questions and clarify concepts and information taught in class. They also provide academic advising, helping you plan your schedule and select courses.
If you're interested in a bachelor's degree in engineering, but do not yet fully qualify, you may qualify for a pre-baccalaureate program. All pre-baccalaureate programs are individualized, planned by you and your academic advisor to help prepare you for the specific RIT engineering program to which you wish to apply.
