  1. Revised Imaging Science Undergraduate Curriculum Summary of Motivation and Plans April 8, 2003

  2. Why Offer a BS in Imaging Science? • Industry demand for our graduates • Training the next generation of “systems integrators” • Cross-disciplinary approach is key to future success in science careers • true for contemporary industry as well as for grad school prospects • Supports and bolsters MS/PhD program

  3. Why Revise Undergraduate Curriculum? • Make program more accessible and flexible • facilitate entry in sophomore year • provide more options within B.S. program • Provide strong “capstone” experiences • investigations of real imaging systems • explore key subfields & applications • Revisit essential elements of imaging science • much change in field since 1997

  4. Core Curriculum I:Clarifying the Essentials • The revised core delivers the material essential to every Imaging Scientist • Introduction to Imaging Systems* • Computing for Imaging* • Linear Math for Imaging • Prob & Stats for Imaging • Optics for Imaging I*, II (Geometrical, Physical) • Interaction Between Light & Matter • Radiometry* • Digital Image Processing I, II • Vision & Psychophysics • Color Science • Detectors and Sensors: Physics and Characteristics *course includeslab component

  5. Core Curriculum II: “Capstone” Experiences • Capstone I: Imaging Systems sequence • Systems Analysis, MTF, Real Vs. Model Systems • includes lab component • Capstone II: Professional Elective sequence(s) • likely initial options: • within CIS: DIP+Applications; Sensors (Physics/CIS/EE?) • within COS: Optics (Physics Dept); Math (Math Dept) • other options added incrementally (e.g., Medical, Hardcopy) • Capstone III: Research Project or Co-op • Research Practices, Professional Seminar, Senior Project* *student may substitute Co-op or professional elective options

  6. Revised Liberal Arts Component • Core • Writing & Lit I, II • Social/Behavioral Sciences (2 courses) • Economics, Political Sci, Sociology/Anthropology, Psychology • Humanities (3) • History, Arts, Philosophy • Advanced • Concentration(2) • option: use free electives to construct Liberal Arts Minor • Senior Project • Research Communication I, II (joint CIS/COLA) • Senior Seminar? (joint CIS/COLA?)

  7. Other Key Features • Free Electives in 4th year enable wide range of possibilities; for example: • Second area of Imaging Science concentration • “Honors” track(s) • followup courses in core areas (Optics, DIP, Color) • additional Physics & Math • 5-year BS/MS • Minor (e.g., Liberal Arts, Physics, Business, Biomed) • Senior year focus on technical writing and presentation • joint initiative w/ COLA

  8. General Curriculum: Summary Credit totals by category: Calculus I-IV 16 University Physics 12 Science Electives: 17 Imaging Science Core: 77* Professional Electives: 12* Liberal Arts: 44 Free Electives: 12* TOTAL 190 (minimum) *under standard “Senior Project” option

  9. Key Tasks Remaining • Decide we want this new curriculum! • Define & develop course material • Imaging Systems sequence • joint CIS/COLA writing initiative • Flesh out professional elective options • tightly defined vs. flexible? • Paperwork • prepare package for COS Curric. Comm. • New formats, requirements for course descriptions • Allocate teaching duties

  10. Transition Plan • Offer Imaging in the Physical Sciences in Fall, Winter qtrs of 2003-04 • ‘Special Topics’ offering for Img Sci and ‘Undeclared’ freshmen • taken in place of Survey + Intro sequence • Offer Img Sci Freshman Seminar in Winter • Advise freshmen to start Univ. Physics sequence in Winter quarter
