Doug Peck, BS 2015

I originally began my career at RIT as a Physics major only to quickly discover that it was not a good fit for me.  By the next semester I was convinced that the Imaging Science subject material, education approach were much more suited towards my academic interests.  People can learn so much through pictures, videos and images in general, and so applying a scientific rigor to their acquisition and utilization really allows that to flourish.  The amount of familiarity Imaging Science students get to have with their professors and other staff and faculty within the building is one of the most rewarding aspects of the program.  One of the most unique opportunities of the Imaging Science program was the Freshman Imaging Project.  I personally had such a good experience with this that the following year, I undertook a second project with a smaller group of friends funded through a micro grant proposal.  The people at CIS are some of the nicest in the world.  They all share a similar mentality of wanting to learn more, exploring cool ideas and ultimately just trying to have fun with science.
