Summary module description:

This module covers the topic of image processing.


Aims:
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.
