next is even more exciting.
Robofish is a perfect illustration of RIT’s track record of preparing students for successful careers by grounding their education in practical, real-world experience early and often.
Imagine yourself at RIT.
At RIT, we empower a kaleidoscope of engaged, socially conscious, and intellectually curious minds to collaborate through creativity and innovation. We blend technology, the arts, and design to inspire a diverse community of problem-solvers. And, together, we find new and meaningful ways to move the world forward.
Rochester Institute of Technology is a diverse and collaborative community of curious minds. Beyond our main campus in Rochester, New York, RIT has several international campuses, more than 19,000 students, and more than 135,000 graduates from all 50 states and more than 100 countries.
