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.

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.
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.
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.
Professor John Kerekes will spend the next year advising the U.S. Department of State on issues including its air quality monitoring program and Earth Challenge 2020, the world’s largest ever coordinated citizen science campaign. He is one of 11 faculty nationwide to be selected for a 2019-2020 Jefferson Science Fellowship.
The fellowship program provides opportunities to outstanding scientists and engineers to learn first-hand about policymaking and contribute their knowledge and analytical skills in the policy realm. Brennan Ireland ’18 Ph.D. (astrophysical sciences and technology) will use his analytical skills to quantitatively evaluate countries to get a better picture of what their futures look like.

RT @RITtigers: False alarm sent today. You may have received a text or desktop alert today that was sent in error claiming there was an armed person at NTID. Please disregard. There is no danger to the campus community. All clear.
Faculty from @RITGSOLS were on the move recently at the Association for #Biology Laboratory Education (ABLE) conference in Quebec. Attending informative workshops, making connections and enjoying Canadian cuisine were all on the menu! #lifesciencest.co/8h0MbUgu9N
