Summary module description:

This module covers digital image processing techniques.

The module aims to provide students with theoretical and practical knowledge of digital image processing from various techniques and applications.

Assessable learning outcomes:

Students who complete this module will have:

• basic skills for image analysis;

• the ability to address issues associated with techniques of image transformation, histogram analysis and modification, image morphological operations and colour image manipulation;

• skills to develop algorithms for digital image enhancement, image compression and texture-based image segmentation.

Additional outcomes:

Programming skills can be improved through practical work.

Outline content:

This module looks at the following in detail:

• digital image fundamentals;

• image enhancement in the spatial domain;

• image enhancement in the frequency domain;

• colour image processing;

• mathematical morphology in image processing;

• image compression;

• image segmentation

Penalties for late submission:
The Module Convenor will apply the following penalties for work submitted late, in accordance with the University policy.

  • where the piece of work is submitted up to one calendar week after the original deadline (or any formally agreed extension to the deadline): 10% of the total marks available for the piece of work will be deducted from the mark for each working day (or part thereof) following the deadline up to a total of five working days;
  • where the piece of work is submitted more than five working days after the original deadline (or any formally agreed extension to the deadline): a mark of zero will be recorded.

  • The University policy statement on penalties for late submission can be found at: http://www.reading.ac.uk/web/FILES/qualitysupport/penaltiesforlatesubmission.pdf
    You are strongly advised to ensure that coursework is submitted by the relevant deadline. You should note that it is advisable to submit work in an unfinished state rather than to fail to submit any work.

    Length of examination:

    One 2 hour examination paper in May/June.

    Requirements for a pass:
    A mark of 40% overall

    Reassessment arrangements:

    One examination paper of 2 hours duration in August/September - the resit module mark will be the higher of the exam mark (100% exam) and the exam mark plus previous coursework marks (70% exam, 30% coursework).

    Additional Costs (specified where applicable):
