International students spend virtual summer at RIT for cybersecurity research program
Student researchers from around the world got a glimpse of what RIT’s new Global Cybersecurity Institute has to offer, during a virtual program held this summer.
The Cybersecurity Visiting Student Research program brought together 12 graduate and undergraduate students throughout the summer to explore new cyber research and share their cultural experiences. Visiting students came from Italy, the Netherlands, India, Taiwan, Poland, United Kingdom, and the U.S.
The 10-week program, led by RIT’s Global Cybersecurity Institute (GCI) and RIT Global, initially intended to bring global students to Rochester for the summer. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, organizers decided to run the program virtually.
