The Computing and Information Technologies program of Rochester Institute of Technology implements complex computing systems and become well versed in their management.


Students in the Computing and Information Technologies program of Rochester Institute of Technology are characterized by their hands-on approach to technology. They are designers and builders, but primarily they’re enablers. Students approach complex problems and create custom solutions that help users meet their goals. They play an integral role in any modern organization, often working behind the scenes to deploy technology where it’s needed most.

Every day, more companies are realizing the benefits that IT professionals bring to the table.
