    Micscape Acknowledgements: Many thanks to all the students over the years for sharing their enthusiasm and skills on such a wonderful variety of topics. Writing an article for Micscape initially formed part of their course as an assignment, which was a neat idea originally proposed by Ted Kinsman the course instructor in 2004 and repeated in most following years. Thanks to Ted for all the work behind the scenes to make this happen.

    Overview by 2022 course tutor Ted Kinsman:

    Photographic sciences is an RIT New Economy Major. This collection of degree programs is forward-thinking and future-forming, and helps prepare you to excel in the multidisciplinary nature of our modern, dynamic economy.

    By combining interests in both science and the arts, photographic sciences features unique course work found at no other U.S. institution. Upper-division classes focus on high-speed photography, micrography, ophthalmic imaging, image analysis/quality, among other topics.

    Students complete a required co-op-full-time, hands-on, paid work experience related to their field of study. Recent co-op placements include opportunities at Carl Zeiss Microscopy, Edmund Optics, the FBI, the Flaum Eye Institute, The Mayo Clinic, and Smithsonian Institution.

    Carl Zeiss Microscopy and NASA are two of the biggest employers of our graduates. Canon, Fujifilm, Leica Microsystems, and the National Retina Institute also employ our graduates.

    Alumni, students, and faculty are regularly recognized by industry competitions like Nikon's Small World and the BioCommunications Association's BioImages competition.
