Among many other distinctions, RIT was ranked 117th overall in the nation and 57th among “Most Innovative Schools,” in the 2022 edition of “U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges.” A hallmark of student innovation is the university’s Imagine RIT: Creativity and Innovation Festival, which showcases hundreds of unique and forward-thinking projects. In 2019, student-researchers at the Brinkman Lab in Kate Gleason College of Engineering, pictured here, demonstrated how different models of 3D printers produce objects such as printed electronics using a variety of materials such as plastic, ceramic, and metal inks. The next Imagine RIT festival will be held on April 23, 2022.
Rochester Institute of Technology has again been recognized as one of the best national universities by U.S. News & World Report, which also cited the university as among the most innovative, best valued, and with highly regarded cooperative education and internship programs.
The report also ranked several of RIT’s colleges as among the best and gave the university overall high marks for academic excellence and social mobility for its graduates, as well as being among the “Best Schools for Veterans.”
In the 2022 edition of U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges, RIT was 117 out of 399 schools in the prestigious “National Universities” category, which includes the nation’s best-known research universities. These top universities offer a full range of undergraduate majors, plus master’s and doctoral programs, and emphasize faculty research or award professional practice doctorates, according to U.S. News.
“The new rankings reflect RIT’s focus on students, in both education and research,” said RIT President David Munson. “We provide unique experiential learning opportunities in the laboratory, in our maker spaces, and in the real world, including through our widely recognized cooperative education program. We are a university working at the intersection of technology, the arts, and design, preparing our students to thrive personally and define the future globally. RIT is perfectly aligned with the opportunities of the 21st century.”
