SMPTE Mason & DC Section September 2017 Meeting was Great Success!

The joint meeting of SMPTE Mason & DC Section was huge success.  More than 40 members and guests enjoyed gathering and listened the seminar "High Dynamic Range for HDTV", presenting by John Humphrey, VP Business Development of Hitachi Kokusai Electronics America.  The seminar was quite astonished and many DC members asked more questions.  Student members learned lots from them and networking with these DC members were great opportunities for them.

Big Changes are Coming - Reorganization of Courses

Beginning with the Fall semester 2015, some big changes are coming to the TCOM program. We have reorganized the TCOM courses with the goal to eliminate the 1.5 credit half-semester courses from the program. Towards that end, we have combined pairs of 1.5 credit courses into single 3 credit hour cours. You will see these changes when the Fall schedule becomes available. Similarly, the catalog descriptions for all TCOM programs have been updated. Read on to learn about the detailed changes.

Welcome to the Fall Semester

The Fall semester is just around the corner. Last night, the new student orientation saw a healthy turn-out of new TCOM students. The slides from the presentation about the TCOM program are attached. After the start of classes next week, we have planned our annual "Welcome Back" reception on September 8 from 4-6pm in the TCOM office; be sure to mark your calendars. In the Fall semester, we will be offering 30 distinct sections of TCOM courses.
