NCCC Success Stories
Communicating by Instant Messaging, which is standard in our division, worked fine. Our deaf RIT intern also taught us some basic sign language over the course of the summer. He was one of the strongest interns, hearing or deaf, I've had in recent years.

Mechanical Engineering Technology
Mechanical/Process Engineer Intern
My advice to current students of RIT/NTID is to network as soon as possible for work opportunities that are relevant to your interests.
Software Engineering Intern
I highly encourage any current students to get as many resources as they can to increase their chance of securing a co-op. When they have no work/internship experience, it can be pretty tough to secure a full-time job, but don't ever give up.
Choose the right path to pursue, hopefully one that you’ve always wanted, and stay motivated in pursuing that path.
I apply the skills I've learned from working with computers and different kinds of software to my job. Do what you love and you will lead a much happier and more fulfilling life.
Don't be afraid to ask for help and ask questions! Keep pursuing your achievements and always believe in yourself!

I met a lot of great friends and people at RIT/NTID, and I learned a lot from them. Graduating RIT/NTID will help me step up and be more confident about myself as a deaf person.
