Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014
"It is a good school, but like most schools struggles to find good, helpful, knowledgeable professors. I had some good ones and a lot of bad ones, but the co-op program offered by RIT is the best I know of and has been a real leg up in the search for a job. I started at my current position less than a month after I graduated and I attribute it partly to the experience I gained through the co-op program."

"The ultrasound program is tough, but well worth the effort in the long run. RIT has the best reputation for ultrasound, and is respected all throughout the profession."

"RIT is a great school for those we love to study and work hard. I am in the mechanical engineering technology program at RIT and I love it. The teachers are great and are classes are so hands on. This is what really drew me to the M.E. tech program. The class sizes are much smaller than that of the M.E's. I feel a much closer bond with my teachers as well as fellow classmates. I would have to say my least favorite part about RIT has to be it's miserable winters which seem to never end. Another great thing about RIT is all the clubs and activities. There are plenty of club and intramural activities, which all are very easy to join. Academically RIT is amazing, especially if you are planning to study something within the field of science or technology. They also have a really good photography program as well. I would recommend RIT for those who are strong willed, hardworking, and success driven. If you are not sure whether college is for you, I might recommend some place else. RIT keeps students very busy with work and partying is certainly not as common as it is at other schools. However, parties do happen and sometimes they can be fun! The other great thing about RIT, that kind of makes up for the lack of parties, is the fact that you will meet some insanely interesting and diverse people. People come from all around the country to go to RIT. There is also such a wide range of majors offered at RIT that you are bound to meet people with many different interests and personalities. There really isn't a stereotypical RIT students, because everyone is really quite different. So far RIT has been great for me, and I know it will really pay off in the future. GO TIGERS!"

"Tell us about your college experience.It was a good program but some of the staff thought very highly of themselves and made life hard on specific students just trying to get through the program. It made me unhappy and I did not want the job I went to school for when I first finished graduating.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?Yes because I love my job. I would probably be more assertive in what classes I took and whom I had as advisor.What advice can you offer other students?Know who the good advisors are. Take less adjunct professor classes and more permanent professors' classes."
