Summer Short Courses

For many years, the Munsell Color Science Laboratory offered industrial short courses during the summer. These evolved over time to reflect both the needs of industrial color applications and the research interests of the faculty.

While we recognize that interaction with industry is a fundamental requirement for the existance of the lab, we are no longer able to offer the summer short courses.

BREAKING NEWS: In Summer Term 2016, PoCS/MCSL will be offering a 3-credit, online, graduate course, CLRS-600 Fundamentals of Color Science. Download the CLRS-600 Info Sheet to learn more about the course details and how to register.

In an effort to provide some support to those looking for background information, we have posted PDFs of the course notes from 2012:
