Information Technology Degree Graduate Courses Encourage Research Initiatives at RIT

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK--(Marketwire - Aug. 26, 2010) - One of the best ways to advance in the field of information technology is to enroll in a Masters program in Information Technology Graduate at RIT. With just over 3, 900 degrees awarded at the Bachelor's, Master's, Doctorate and Diploma/Certificate level it's no wonder why our Information Technology degree Graduate courses at RIT attract students from across the country and around the world.

At our recent Graduate Research Symposium, the caliber of research presented by RIT graduates from Microelectronics Master's Degree, Masters Degree in Information Technology and Information Technology Degree Graduate Programs were highly praised by leaders actively working in the field. Austars Schnore, a principal engineer at GE Global Research, commended the graduate students at RIT's first Graduate Research Symposium in the Louise Slaughter Building. Schnore, who gave the symposium's keynote address, was impressed by what he saw.

"I would like to add my admiration to the quality and diversity of work I've seen today," he said. The symposium appealed to more than 200 attendees and a broad range of research topics were covered, including social networking, developing a space weather alert system, using design elements to help people with mental-health disorders, and analyzing the color of beer.

Master's and PhD students from nearly two dozen disciplines including Information Technology, Research and Technology and Sustainability degree programs participated in the symposium. Eager to present their work, graduate students not only delivered presentations, they originated the idea to hold the symposium in the first place. This and many other innovations presented by RIT graduate students underline their commitment toward their work and their willingness to share it with the Rochester community. With an Information Technology Degree Graduate Program, Sustainability PhD, Microelectronics Master's Degree or Masters Degree in Information Technology from RIT you'll become a part of a well-connected network with more than 100,000 well-connected alumni who value the power of an RIT Information Technology Degree Graduate course and look to hire our graduates.

A Testament to our Information Technology Degree Programs

The large turnout on this very special occasion emphasized RITs' dedication to our graduate programs including Master's Degree in Information Technology, Microelectronics and Sustainability. "This was a very special occasion and the turnout was a clear testimony to our graduate programs," says Andrew Moore, dean of RIT's graduate studies. Awards were handed out for the top oral presentations and for best poster. Graduates in the areas of computing information sciences, microelectronic engineering, microsystems engineering, information technology and color science received awards for their outstanding presentations. Robert Manley, a Ph.D. candidate in microsystems engineering, served as the symposium chair. "The graduate students have been eager to present their work and the idea to hold a symposium came from them," adds Manley. "The students' response is a testament to the commitment that RIT graduate students have toward their work and their willingness to share it with the community at-large." Students were encouraged to develop interests in a range of topics and to find good mentors. Without doubt, these masters' degree and PhD students will drive innovation and contribute their technical knowledge earned at RIT into high-demand information technology fields.
