“Coming of Age: The Center for Imaging Science at Rochester Institute of Technology,” by RIT professor emeritus John Schott, describes the university-wide impact of the center and first Ph.D. program. Archival photographs accompany Schott’s narration, highlighting historical milestones and various leaders.
Some highlights from the book include an overview of the transition from analog to digital imaging, an account of RIT’s collection of remote imagery in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake; and brief summaries of specific areas of research within the Center for Imaging Science.
Today, RIT has eight doctoral programs and confers at least 20 research/scholarship doctorates annually.
