As part of School of Media Sciences (SMS) administrative chair Bruce Myers’ Lithographic Process class, students produced a new edition of Rochester Institute of Technology’s Test Targets publication in the spring of 2018. Each student enrolled in the class wrote a technical article and collected the images, as well as gathered articles from other SMS majors at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Test Targets was first published in 2002 under the direction of Robert Chung, who is now professor emeritus in SMS, and retired professor Franz Sigg. Chung wrote the foreword for the current edition, and also advised one of the graduate student submissions.
