Golisano College is home to RIT’s Computer Science, Computing Security, Information Sciences and Technologies, and Software Engineering Departments, as well as the Computing and Information Sciences PhD program, and the School of Interactive Games & Media.History
RIT has been offering courses in computer science since 1973 when the Department of Computer Science was formed within the Institute College. The Department moved into the School of Computer Science and Technology when the School was formed in 1976, and then moved along with the School when it was absorbed into CAST in 1981.
In 2001, the School of Computer Science and Technology within the College of Applied Science and Technology (CAST) became the new college, B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences (GCCIS). At its formation, GCCIS inherited the departments Computer Science, Software Engineering and Information Technology from the School of Computer Science and Technology.Dates of Existence
