The faculty and staff of the College of Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology educate and inspire the next generation of scientists and mathematicians to solve current and emerging problems facilitated by rigorous curricula and experiential learning. The great scientist Louis Pasteur stated: “Science knows no country because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world.
