Imaging Science Master's Program
Jump start your new career into the world's high-paying, innovative technology industries with an Imaging Science Master's Program from RIT. At RIT, you'll discover more than 80 Master's Programs in some of the most respected math and science-related disciplines. Don't delay: get in touch today to learn more about this program at RIT.
The objective of this program is to prepare students holding a bachelor's degree in science or engineering for positions in research in the imaging industry, or in the application of various imaging modalities to problems in engineering and science. Formal course work includes consideration of the physics and chemistry of radiation-sensitive materials and processes, the applications of physical and geometrical optics to electro-optical systems, the mathematical evaluation of image forming systems, and the statistics of experimental design and quality control. Technical electives at the graduate level may be selected from courses offered in imaging science, color science, engineering, computer science, science, and mathematics. Both thesis and project options are available. In general, full-time supported students are required to pursue the thesis option, with the project option targeted to part-time students who can demonstrate that they have sufficient practical experience through their professional activities.
Faculty within the Center for Imaging Science supervise thesis research in areas of the physics and chemistry of radiation-sensitive materials and processes, digital image processing, remote sensing, nanoimaging, electro-optical instrumentation, medical imaging, color imaging systems, and astronomical imaging. Interdisciplinary efforts are possible with the Kate Gleason College of Engineering and the College of Science.
The degree requirements can be completed on a full- or a part-time basis. An online version of the MS program is available in the areas of color science, remote sensing, medical imaging, and digital image processing.
Interested students should consult the website (www.cis.rit.edu) or contact the graduate coordinator.
