The RIT Honors Engineering program provides gifted engineering students the experiences above and beyond those offered in standard engineering classes. Students take honors engineering classes that emphasis product development in a global economy. Travel and field trips to key industrial sites allow students to observe core engineering disciplines as practiced in a variety of corporate environments and to appreciate the many dimensions of engineering professions.

The curriculum is focused on multidisciplinary design in a global environment. Students are challenged to achieve their greatest potential. The Honors Engineering program encourages increased student-faculty interaction through hands-on projects with faculty mentors. It also provides students with an opportunity to develop their product design skills in a multidisciplinary team of other honors engineering students. Seminars and social events with engineering faculty and advisers round out the program.
