Paper Abstract

The recent and rapid development of sophisticated technologies and products has resulted in an imaging revolution across many segments of the population, from the military to the medical communities. In particular, electronic imaging is increasingly changing the way in which society provides information, conducts its business, entertains itself, an even designs and simulates its future activities. The educational sector is attempting to keep pace with the new skill-needs precipitated by the emergence of electronic imaging. Comprehensive programs in imaging science call for bringing together the more traditional disciplines such as physics, mathematics, and optics, with newer ones such as computer science, image processing, digital graphics, and so on. Based on its historical strengths, Rochester Institute of Technology has taken a leadership position in bringing together these fields and establishing imaging as an institute-wide theme. The creation of the Center for Imaging Science represents the most obvious example of this commitment, with its specific undergraduate and graduate programs in imaging science. It is noteworthy that these programs have been developed and fostered in close partnership with the imaging industry.
