Profile of Video and Image Systems Engineering (VISE) Program
In 1996, the Video and Image Systems Engineering (VISE) program was introduced at Purdue University to meet the educational needs of the imaging industry. The VISE program consists of two major components: a state-of-the-art lecture/laboratory facility and a rich curriculum of video and imaging-related courses. The program also provides full Internet access to all content, including streaming video of lectures. Initially funded by a grant from the Hewlett-Packard Company, it has since been supported by Hewlett-Packard and numerous other industry partners. The VISE program and facility has evolved into an unequaled educational resource designed to teach both the analytical and applications aspects of imaging systems at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Interesting fact: The explosive growth of information technology in the past decade has been built on the pervasive use of imagery as an intuitive medium for communications.
