Best Art And Design Colleges in Rochester for 2018

Rank School Name Location Description   Rating
1 Rochester Institute of Technology Rochester, NY

Imagine being given one paper coffee cup, a plastic lid, a cardboard cup sleeve, and a wooden stir stick and being told you have three hours to design and produce a scale model of a chair using only these materials. Such challenges keep design students at RIT engaged in their classes while developing creativity, productivity, and other skills they’ll need in their future careers. No wonder IDEO, Fisher Price, and Apple are among the top employers of industrial design graduates. (Not to be outdone, 3D digital design grads have gone on to positions at DreamWorks, and notable ad agency BBDO is fond of RIT’s graphic design majors.) RIT has one of the oldest and most extensive cooperative education programs in the nation, and interested students from design programs are encouraged to take advantage of the institute’s connections to gain real-life experience in their field of study. Also available to students is the Vignelli Center for Design Studies, which opened on campus in 2010 to house the extensive professional archives of Massimo and Lella Vignelli. The center’s annual lecture series provides the opportunity to gain invaluable insight from visiting design professionals.
