  World's Best Microscopy Courses

Lehigh’s SEM courses were founded by Joe Goldstein in 1970. More than four decades later, the Lehigh Microscopy School is widely recognized as the largest and best in the world.

Over 5,900 engineers, scientists, and technicians have taken our courses, coming from 50 states and 35 countries. Goldstein et al., the SEM textbook, has worldwide sales of over 52,000 copies since its first publication in 1975.

Fifteen of our lecturers have served as president of one of the major microscopy, microanalysis, or materials societies.

Lecturers have more than 1000 years of combined experience in microscopy and microanalysis at the world’s leading research institutions and universities.
