A Rochester Institute of Technology student has been selected for an Intel Scholars award at the 2016 Game Developers Conference this week in San Francisco.

Juliann Internicola, a fourth-year game design and development major from Buffalo, received the award, which is presented to female or underrepresented minority students who are then assigned to a gaming industry mentor for one-on-one professional development sessions.


Courses will begin this fall for a new associate’s degree program in mobile application development at Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf.

The New York State Department of Education approved the program, which NTID officials said will prepare students “for work in the software development industry with a focus on application design and development for mobile platforms.”
