RIT offers online program in product development
Informational webinar detailing information about enrollment in the program for engineering and technical professionals takes place Feb. 13
Engineers, scientists, technical managers and other professionals looking to move into mid- and senior-level management positions in high-tech industries can attain the needed product development and leadership skills through programs offered at Rochester Institute of Technology.
RIT is hosting a webinar, “Engineering Leadership Programs at RIT,” from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 13, for professionals looking to advance leadership skills in the areas of product development, manufacturing, systems engineering, supply chain management and project management.
RIT offers part-time graduate degree programs and professional certificates offered through RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering. Programs are fully online, and students can enroll in one or two courses each semester to customize their pace of learning. This past December, RIT was recognized for its online master’s degree programming, and the product development degree is one of the programs included in the broad range of offerings.
“Students have found the skills developed through these programs not only help them become more marketable, they also foster the self-confidence needed to take on new responsibilities,” said Mark Smith, director of Leadership Programs in the engineering college. “The combination of engineering and business coursework provides a broad perspective needed to lead today’s high technology enterprises.”
Register for the webinar by contacting Lou Fantozzi, business development manager for the engineering college, at email@example.com. A link to the webinar will be sent to participants with confirmation of registration.

RIT hosts 2019 Upstate NY Regional Student Conference on April 19 and 20 at Polisseni Center
Concrete canoes float—really. And bridges are more complicated to construct than putting up a few steel beams. Student-engineers who build both the unusual—yet attractive—canoes and complex bridge spans will display their designs at the 2019 Upstate New York Regional Student Conference taking place April 19-20 at RIT.
