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, Nicole has gained hands-on research experience to pursue a future in regenerative medicine. It’s one way Nicole is putting experiential learning to work.
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. Professor Christina Goudreau Collison worked with interpreters to develop new ASL signs, leading to profound learning improvements for her students.
Jennifer Wheeler, M.D. BS ’01
After 9/11, Dr. 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.
Connecting Kids to Science
Devon M Christman
Over the summer, Devon 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, Devon is shaping the minds of tomorrow’s scientists.
Assistant Professor Michael Zemcov interviewed by North Shore News for his part in contributing to NASA’s new mission to explore the origins of the universe by performing the first near-infrared all-sky spectral survey.
Scientists conducting cutting-edge research in computational astrophysics will converge at RIT for two workshops in June. Experts from RIT, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Berkeley and other prestigious institutions will speak at the events hosted by RIT’s Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation.
The 2019 North American Einstein Toolkit Workshop by @RIT_CCRG provides an opportunity for researchers and students to learn about the toolkit and discuss its future development. Learn more: t.co/0EVr2ZgShgt.co/O1KCTdr01O
