RIT is a place where brilliant minds assemble and collaborate, where they pool together their individual talents across disciplines in service of big ideas and creative solutions. It is a vibrant community teeming with students collaborating with experts and specialists: a hub of innovation and creativity. It is an intersection of disciplines, a launching pad for a brilliant career, and a highly unique state of mind.
It is a perfect environment in which to pursue your passion. Here, the future is envisioned each day. And remade each day after.

As much as we have to teach the students how to navigate and be advocates for themselves and their health, I learn something new all the time. We all have a common goal of wanting our students to be well physically and mentally.

Working at RIT was fun. It involved creative freedom and encouragement for newer design processes. Less pressure gets more work done.
Graduate Assistant (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYDecember 26, 2016
A typical day would begin by 9:30-10 am and would end by 6 pm. I was a member of team Lily Pad. Lily Pad is a system of interactive modules designed for children with varying developmental disabilities such as Autism and Down syndrome. Just in the U.S, one in every 68 children has autism and 1 in every 6 has some sort of developmental challenges. These children have the tendency to get easily distracted by their surroundings and daily activities, such as walking down hallways is challenging. Therapists have to put a lot of effort to catch the child’s attention and our goal is to design a system that will guide and engage these children in their daily activities. The team has designed each module with sensorial textures, light and sound outputs.
Management was supportive and followed up with teams via a weekly meeting. We followed SCRUM process and each project went through various iterations. My co-workers and I followed the utmost level of professionalism. Each did their part and coordination was an integral part of the working environment.
I started learning how to gather data for business canvas model. Hardest part would be to combine design, engineering and business together and maintain balance. On the contrary, that was the most interesting part too.
