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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
A new paper published in Astronomy and Astrophysics outlines how a team from RIT and the Insituto Argentino de Radioastronomía (IAR) upgraded two radio telescopes in Agrentina that lay dormant for 15 years in order to study pulsars, rapidly rotating neutron stars with intense magnetic fields that emit notably in radio wavelengths.
When Bilal Zeghum left RIT to help his family relocate, he thought he had met all the requirements for his degree. When he discovered he had not, it didn't stop him from continuing on his path to completing his education and entering a career in his field.
RIT will use a substantial gift of real estate in Penfield to expand the university’s research and educational offerings in ecology, agriculture, sustainability and other fields. Amy Leenhouts Tait and Robert C. Tait have gifted to the university their 177-acre property, which will be dedicated as the Tait Preserve of RIT.
