Founded in 1829, Rochester Institute of Technology is an internationally recognized leading university with nine colleges emphasizing career education and experiential learning. The campus occupies 1,300 acres in suburban Rochester, the third-largest city in New York state, and has international campuses in Eastern Europe and Dubai.
The Manufacturing, Mechanical, and Electrical Mechanical Engineering Technology Department are comprised of three distinct disciplines that offer intense hands-on education in Manufacturing, Mechanical or Electrical Mechanical engineering technology. Students from these disciplines graduate as lifelong learners with the ability to adapt, grow and succeed in a highly competitive engineering workplace. The intense hands-on education enables graduates to hit the road running the day they graduate, requiring very minimal training in the field. Full-time placements upon graduation have ranged in the 95% to 98%.
The department’s unique curriculum supports engineering education to include manufacturing processes, mechanical design, electrical and mechanical systems integration, product life cycle engineering and management, and conventional and alternative energy systems development. The faculty and laboratories that support the three disciplines are under one academic unit and provide interdisciplinary education that enables students to be successful in today’s global business environment.
