Color Quality Control: An Interdisciplinary Experience

Everything we purchase is colored in some way; and color is a key factor in our decisions. But color is also a personal experience, influenced by biological, psychological and environmental factors. Researchers at North Carolina State University’s Color Science and Imaging Laboratories study human color perception, specification, quantification, and reproduction of color in different media. Many collaborators are involved—from  optics, chemistry and imaging science to physiology, psychology and mathematics. A central theme linking nearly all projects is color quality control.

FLUORESCENT FRIDAYS is a platform for university students from all disciplines to network with color professionals and fellow students, and to explore cutting-edge information about color’s role in our lives and applications in the world. 

Global Student Chapter: The long range goal is to build a global student chapter that positions color as a multidimensional STEAM model (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math), sharing up-to-date color research by scientists, artists, designers, industry professionals, and university students.21st century color communication requires a commitment to building bridges for sharing resources, cultivating mentors, and creating new opportunities. With up-to-date information and useful tools, students become the next generation of leaders in ever-evolving color related disciplines.
