Engineering and Engineering Technology

At RIT, our engineering students dismantle tough problems in the search for solutions. We take on important challenges–the environment, energy, health care, manufacturing, and more–to find the engineering solutions that lead to significant change. And dynamic change like this transforms the world.

Engineering in action. It’s what we do. In our engineering and engineering technology programs, you’ll learn the theory and principles behind engineering, and you’ll apply them–on full-time, paid cooperative education experiences, with teammates on performance teams and clubs, and in makerspaces where you can bring any idea to life. You’ll have unprecedented access to design tools, makerspaces, labs, and an entrepreneurial ecosystem to design, build, test, and prototype your creations.
