Message from the Dean

Matt Huenerfauth

Dean, Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences


Welcome to one of the most comprehensive computing colleges in the nation, the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences at RIT. From life-saving software applications to interactive educational games and breakthrough research, every day Golisano College faculty and students are changing the world in exciting new ways. Our faculty members are internationally recognized leaders in their fields and expose their students to hands-on, multidisciplinary educational instruction. Our students co-op and go on to work at many of the world’s largest tech firms and have developed groundbreaking tech like Kinect for Xbox 360 and game-changing innovations like jQuery.

Whether on-campus or across the world, students are actively working on projects that have helped impact humanitarian aid and emergency response, national security, health care innovation, and competitive gaming and entertainment, just to name a few. We offer an Exploration program for students who are still finding the computing field they are most passionate about, and we are proud to be home to an inclusive community where everyone at the college works to help each other succeed. I thank you for taking the time to learn more about our work and encourage you to consider studying, researching, collaborating with, or contributing to the Golisano College.
