Imaging Scientist Qualification

RPS Imaging Scientist vocational qualifications are open for application from those who have professional careers within the fields of engineering, science and technology.

The Royal Photographic Society Imaging Scientist Qualifications provide a structure leading to professional qualifications for engineers, scientists and technologists whose professional activities are concerned with quantitative or mechanic aspects of imaging systems or their applications. The relevant academic disciplines (chemistry, engineering, physics etc.), imaging systems (silver, non-silver, electronic etc.) and applications, will be interpreted as widely as possible.

The Qualifications may be gained by members of The Society working within relatively narrow specialisations but their achievements will require a range of widely applicable professional skills. Candidates are required to demonstrate at an appropriate level, and as required by their particular professional circumstances, an ability to undertake a programme of work, write reports and papers, work within a team and produce results.

Members who acquire an Imaging Scientist Qualification will also receive a Society Distinction.

Professor Ralph Jacobson ASIS HonFRPS, Chair of the Imaging Scientist Board, in an article for The Journal discussed The Society’s Imaging Science Distinctions and Qualifications. This article, which is available to read here, in conjunction with Section 9 and Section C of The Society’s Handbooks, will be of great benefit to potential applicants for an Image Scientist Qualification.  You will find the relevant Handbooks here
