RIT’s School of Print Media Shifting Focus to Emerging Digital Technologies
“Making room in our labs for the next generation of imaging technology will allow RIT to be positioned to serve the demands of our students and industry, making graphic communications more effective, efficient and sustainable in the third millennium,” he adds.
As part of the school’s evolution, it is revamping the Printing Industry Center to create a Cross-Media Innovation Center that aims at providing a more extensive platform for collaboration between RIT and industry partners.
“We are committed to a more immersive style of teaching, which will include more hands-on lab time across all courses,” Bondy says.
The Cross-Media Innovation Center will be sponsoring a Cross-Media Innovation Summit scheduled for Oct. 18–19 during Brick City Homecoming week in Rochester.
Rochester Institute of Technology is internationally recognized for academic leadership in computing, engineering, imaging science, sustainability, and fine and applied arts, in addition to unparalleled support services for deaf and hard-of-hearing students. RIT enrolls 17,500 full- and part-time students in more than 200 career-oriented and professional programs, and its cooperative education program is one of the oldest and largest in the nation.
