Minor in Imaging Science

Rationale

Students will have the opportunity for additional study in Imaging Science, in order to build a secondary area of expertise in support of their program or other areas of interest.

Prerequisites

A student must be matriculated in a baccalaureate program and must have successfully completed (or be enrolled in) the following courses to be eligible to begin coursework toward an Imaging Science Minor:

1017.311/312/313University Physics I/II/III
1016.281/282/283Project-Based Calculus I/II/III
4002.208Introduction to Programming (or equivalent)

Many Imaging Science courses have additional prerequisites (see below), and students should consult the course catalog and the CIS Undergraduate Coordinator for further information.

Requirements

A student must successfully complete a minimum of 20 quarter credit hours from the listings below, maintaining a minimum GPA of 2.0 among these courses. At least 12 of the quarter credit hours must be for courses not required by the students home program and must be completed in residency at RIT. These 12 quarter credit hours must be selected from the "Imaging Science Components" list below. At least two of these courses must be 400 level or above. The remaining 8 quarter credit hours can come either from the "Imaging Science Components" list or from thematically related "Non-Imaging Science Components" (see examples, below).

It is recommended (but not required) that students in pursuit of a minor in Imaging Science take the Introduction to Imaging Systems (1051.300) course as part of the 20-quarter credit hour requirement.
