To provide a creative, intellectual and entrepreneurial outlet for students to use the latest open-source software platforms to develop applications that solve societal problems.
RCOS is a group of RPI students who work on open source projects. We meet every Tuesday in AE 214 from 4pm - 5pm (during regular semester) and Friday from noon to 1:00 pm (during summer) in Lally 104 to update our progress. Our members work on a variety of projects, as can be seen here. The projects page is itself our dashboard to help us keep up with the status of the projects!
Students can participate in RCOS for course credit or for a stipend. At the beginning of each semester, the Internal Advisory Board will review project proposals and decide which projects should receive financial support.
