Summary module description:

This module covers the topic of image processing.

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 from coursework assignments, which associate with lab practicals.  Research studies are also involved in coursework assignments.

Outline content:
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.
