The master of science curriculum emphasizes a systems approach to the study of imaging science, and with your background in science or engineering, this degree prepares you for positions in research, product development, and management in the imaging industry. The curriculum was developed in collaboration with industrial partners to emphasize skills needed by their scientists, engineers, and managers. You may concentrate on one of several "system tracks," or customize your own track. You may choose to complete either a research thesis or a project and a paper in the non-thesis option. You may also perform your thesis research at your place of employment. The program can be completed on a full or part-time basis.
