I’ve always had an interest in “seeing” the world in more than just the red, green, blue that our eyes provide. It was only a matter of time before I found the only school in the country that offers a degree in Imaging Science. Imaging Science is the investigation of the electromagnetic spectrum and its interaction with the environment for the exploitation of information. In other words: using light, heat, and other forms of radiation to perceive the environment in a way that humans cannot do naturally. Having studied engineering, I'm familiar with the cross-collaboration necessary to design and build aerospace systems.This generally includes a team of specialists familiar with their subsystems, but not able to independently perform an end-to-end analysis of the system as a whole. Conversely, Imaging Science gave me the opportunity to learn the physics, mathematics, and computer science necessary to perform a comprehensive end-to-end analysis on the entire "imaging chain.” The specialized nature of Imaging Science at RIT gives students the opportunity to be among those advancing the forefront of this discipline.
