Summer Short Courses

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

During the recent restructuring it was decided that the courses would not be offered. We might bring them back in some form in the future as interaction with industry is a fundamental requirement for the existance of the lab.

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