Colour Science Research Unit was established officially in July 2013, after Chulalongkorn University reactivated the Colour Management Research Unit within the Department of Imaging and Printing Technology and after the name of the reactivated Research Unit was changed to Colour Science by the appointed head of the Unit, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Pichayada Katemake.
The Colour Science Research Unit was enriched with the space and activity of the Colour Research and Multimedia Laboratory, created and conducted by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Pichayada Katemake since the end of 2011. Two new projects were submitted by Dr. Katemake and were approved for funding, adding to the already prodigious activity that was transferred from the Colour Research and Multimedia Laboratory to this Unit.
Colour Science is a border science blending chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science and medical science. Degree programs for colour scientists are rare. The most known University to offer such degrees (and the only one in United States) is RIT. However, there are many color scientists who have degrees in other fields and then learned more about color science through their work or research. The specialists working in this Colour Science Research Unit also come from various fields. Anyone having expertise in areas such as physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, psychology (perceptual or experimental), cognitive science, computer science, etc. is welcomed to join our training programs and research team.
The Colour Science Research Unit harboured by the Faculty of Science of Chulalongkorn University is the only place in Thailand that develops internationally recognized methods and software in Colour Research. We have numerous training programs, services, research activities and the best experts in Colour Science. Surf the website to have a glimpse at what is done here and feel free to contact the experts anytime.
Below is the group of advisors that joined us in January 2014. They are high-profile Colour Scientists well known in their countries and worldwide, therefore they do not need any presentation. Their pictures are arranged in chronological order of joining our Unit:
