RIT’s College of Applied Science and Technology was awarded $582,152 from the National Science Foundation to improve participation of low-income, underrepresented students in its engineering technology programs.

The program will include a one-credit course to enhance study skills, emphasize workforce readiness and to encourage the students to further their studies in graduate school. They will participate in community activities, have peer and professional mentors and be involved in professional development activities sponsored by the Women in Technology Program and the college.
