RIT students interested in veterinary school face a rigorous application process akin to the requirements of medical school. These students rely upon the Pre-Veterinary Advisory Program to help them pursue graduate education in animal medicine...
The National Institute of General Medical Sciences has awarded a grant to Rochester Institute of Technology that is expected to provide $1.025 million in funding over five years to develop a Scientists-In-Training Program for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Undergraduates. The award is funded through the Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) program...
Two undergraduate School of Chemistry and Material Sciences students at Rochester Institute of Technology have won honorable mention awards from the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program for 2017.
Benjamin Catalano, from Irwin, Pa., and Ryan LeTourneau, from Bowie, Md., were recognized based on academic merit. This year, the Goldwater Foundation selected 240 scholars and 307 honorable mentions from 1,286 nominees from 2,000 U.S. colleges and universities.
Multidisciplinary science education and research is the focus of a new academic unit in RIT’s College of Science that brings together researchers with different expertise to invent new ways to approach challenges facing a global society.
The Integrated Sciences Academy will focus on implementing specific inter- and multidisciplinary programs within the College of Science and differs from custom-tailored programs offered through RIT’s School of Individualized Study.
Rochester Institute of Technology leads universities in New York with seven federally funded summer research programs for undergraduate students, according to the National Science Foundation.
“Undergraduate research is a strategic goal for RIT, and the high number of REUs reflects well on our faculty,” said Sophia Maggelakis, dean of RIT’s College of Science. “Our faculty take seriously the responsibility to mentor and train undergraduates to make new discoveries and to pursue careers in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields.”
Undergraduate student Kimberlee Keithley has maintained a 4.0 GPA since she began at RIT. She is the 2017 winner of the Norman A. Miles Scholarship, which recognizes that achievement. She’ll go into her final year at RIT to complete two degrees, one in chemical engineering and the other in applied mathematics.
Rochester Institute of Technology has been awarded $1 million from a private philanthropy to increase diversity and inclusivity among undergraduate science majors and develop a strategy for supporting their success.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Inclusive Excellence Initiative is a five-year science education grant to develop future scientists reflecting the nation's diversity....
New information gleaned from gravitational wave observations is helping scientists understand what happens when massive stars die and transform into black holes.
Rochester Institute of Technology researcher Richard O'Shaughnessy and collaborators reanalyzed the merging black holes detected by LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory) on Dec. 26, 2016.
"Using essentially freshman physics, we...
Rochester Institute of Technology researchers continue to make significant contributions to gravitational wave astronomy, with the third detection of gravitational waves and a new black hole 49 times the size of our sun.
The LIGO collaboration today announced results from the detection of gravitational waves on Jan. 4. The discovery will be...
A team of RIT students spent the year giving wings to an idea that could help archaeologists find artifacts on the ground or buried a few meters below the surface.
Closer to the ground, aerial unmanned vehicles, or drones, equipped with multispectral sensors could provide richer, more detailed information than satellite imagery.
