Rochester Institute of Technology and National Taiwan University of Science and Technology Sign International Partnership Agreement Educational Programs
Jan 8 14
Rochester Institute of Technology entered into an international educational partnership agreement on December 1, 2013 with National Taiwan University of Science and Technology to provide an accelerated, five-year program for students to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree from the Taiwanese university and a Master of Science degree from RIT. Under the agreement, students would study for three years in Taiwan, earning a bachelor's degree in electronic and computer engineering, electrical engineering, or computer science and information engineering. They would follow up with two years in the United States at RIT, receiving a master's degree in computer engineering from RIT's Kate Gleason College of Engineering. Computer engineering at RIT will complement the students' education in three closely related undergraduate programs at NTUST, in not only hands-on engineering education but also research experience as part of the computer engineering MS degree requirement. This partnership can further foster research collaboration between NTUST and RIT, enabling interdisciplinary advances in both institutions.

Sep 11 13
Uncommon Schools and Rochester Institute of Technology are partnering in the development of a charter high school in Rochester that will have a distinctive focus: increasing the number of Rochester students who receive bachelor's degrees from college. The high school will be the fifth Rochester school operated by Uncommon Schools, an award-winning charter management organization. It will open in Fall 2014 with a 60-student ninth-grade class, ultimately growing by 2018 to about 500 students in grades 9 through 12. The high school will serve students already enrolled in Uncommon's four Rochester Prep schools, which currently have approximately 1,000 students in grades kindergarten through 8.
