We encourage our students to discover their potential while expanding fundamental scientific knowledge and developing new technologies. We prepare our graduates by providing academic programs in STEM disciplines to meet the challenges of a complex world.
Scientists and mathematicians challenge accepted truths and seek new discoveries. The College of Science encourages students to leverage this passion and prepares world leaders who will expand the frontiers of science and mathematics and their application in making our communities and our world better.
By working on a faculty-guided research project, Pannullo has gained hands-on research experience to pursue a future in regenerative medicine. It’s one way Pannullo is putting experiential learning to work.
Jennifer Wheeler, M.D. BS ’01
After 9/11, Wheeler enlisted in the US Army and served as a doctor in Afghanistan. Now, she practices family medicine and serves as a preceptor to RIT students who are embarking on their own careers in medicine.
Kha interned with Oculus testing their next generation of VR cameras, which have the potential to aid law enforcement and impact learning in schools. The internship turned into a full-time job, and Kha plans to work on enhancing the VR experience.
Tina Goudreau Collison
Professor of Chemistry
A complicated vocabulary and a lack of dedicated signs in American Sign Language makes Organic Chemistry a challenge for deaf and hard of hearing students. Collision worked with interpreters to develop new ASL signs, leading to profound learning improvements for her students.
Connecting Kids to Science
Devon M Christman
Over the summer, Christman taught a workshop called “Experiments in Science” to a group of children from RIT’s Kids on Campus program. By helping to change their perspectives on who and what a scientist is, Christman is shaping the minds of tomorrow’s scientists.
A team of RIT researchers will explore how tiny particles of plastic pollution are impacting Lake Ontario thanks to new funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The multidisciplinary group will examine how microplastics are transported and transformed in the lake, where they ultimately end up and what effects they have on the ecosystem.
City Newspaper talks to Juliette Daily, mathematical modeling Ph.D. student, and Matthew Hoffman, assistant professor in the School of Mathematical Sciences, about their research on plastic pollution in Lake Erie.
Professor Emeritus Roger Dube was recently awarded a prestigious Fulbright fellowship for a project to increase retention of First Nations students in STEM higher education programs. The project will take place at the University of Manitoba, where he is serving as Visiting Indigenous Scholar.
