University Imaging Programs

There are few universities that offer undergraduate or graduate degrees specifically in imaging science. “Imaging” is usually offered as through inter-disciplinary study or an emphasis within a broader program, such as physics, engineering, computer science, optics, photography, chemistry, etc. Consequently, it can be difficult for persons new to the field to find a university with strong programs of study and research in an imaging science or technology-related area appropriate to their area of interest.

Corrections, Updates and Additions?

The listing below represents IS&T’s efforts to build a resource of educational institutes that offer imaging-related programs. While we have done our best to include all such programs, if you know of any that are missing, please send the appropriate information to We welcome your contributions.
