RIT adds three degree programs

A master’s in human-computer interactions, a bachelor’s in applied networking and system administration, and a “fast-track” associate of science degree program are among the newest degree programs at RIT.

• The M.S. concentration in human-computer interaction is offered by the information technology department in the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences (GCCIS). Human-computer interaction, broadly defined as the study of the design, evaluation and implementation of interactive computing systems, emerged as a significant new discipline over the past decade.

• GCCIS also introduced a B.S. degree in applied networking and system administration, which focuses on the design, construction and operation of computer networks using available components, along with managing the servers that keep users interconnected.

About 50 students are enrolled in the program. That number is expected to grow as high as 600 in five years. During that period, the IT department will explore a master’s degree program in this area.

For more information on these two programs, contact the department of information technology at 585-475-6179, or go to www.it.rit.edu/.

• National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) is offering a “fast-track” associate of science degree program designed to prepare students to enter a bachelor’s degree program in the College of Business. Graduates of the A.S. degree program will be able to transfer 70 to 80 credits of core study directly to the COB program of their choice.

For more information about the associate’s degree program, contact Bill Rudnicki, chair of NTID’s business careers department, at 585-475-2952 or send e-mail to wjrnbt@rit.edu.
