Senior Project / Capstone Guidelines

The faculty of the Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science agrees that a significant capstone research experience at the undergraduate level is a factor that is both important to the education of future imaging scientists and preparatory for the environment they will enter after graduation - whether that environment is graduate school or the work place. It is understood that this capstone research experience can be achieved in different ways, and certain unique situations may arise that allow for deviation from the proposed approach with the approval of the CIS Undergraduate Coordinator.

Resources for Graduation (and beyond)

RIT Alumni Relations - Discover the benefits of registering with RIT Alumni Relations.
CIS Alumni Database - Sign up to receive the CIS Imaging Connection Newsletter and other important announcements.

Support CIS - Pay it forward so future RIT students can enjoy the benefits of an Imaging Science education just like you did.

Report employer and salary data - Please report your post-graduation plans to the Office of Co-op and Career Services for RIT's Salary and Program Information for employers database. Employers, especially those unfamiliar with the term “Imaging Science”, often use this information to gauge how well an Imaging Science applicant might fit job requirements, and to determine how much salary to offer. Information for the database is collected automatically from graduates who complete the online form. (Note that you need to login, but salary info is pulled anonymously for the table.) Nothing is reported on the webpage unless at least 3 entries have been made.
