Could a ECE PhD in Rochester Institute of Technology Lead to Any Faculty Job?

Yan Yang


I originally think it's quite possible, since it's CS ranking and overall ranking are both good. Especially, I'm doing Computer Vision and it's pretty good in this area.

However, I have checked many universities in the New York and was quite disappointed. I found a lot of faculties with their PhD done in top 50 universities, some faculties in those slightly lower ranked than the prestigious ones like university at Buffalo, and sporadically, I can even find faculties from universities apparently lower ranked than RIT whose name I never knew. I didn't find a single faculty with a PhD degree from RIT.

I also checked universities on the west coast. I'm not gonna mention the better ones like UCSD, but even in the lower ranked ones such as University of Nevada, Reno and Santa Clara University, I didn't find a single faculty with a PhD degree from RIT.

How is RIT ranked around #65 in CS ranking? (Or it just doesn't have a lot to do with research? I remember RIT is R2 school, but would this single metric matter so much that it cancelled its high ranking both in CS and in Computer Vision?)
