On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- The students will understand and apply the fundamental techniques and algorithms behind multiple image processing applications. By the end of this module, the students should be able to:
- Understand how signal processing techniques generalise from univariate signals to images.
- Recall a range of techniques and algorithms for image processing.
- Demonstrate critical knowledge of commonly use image processing techniques, being able to discuss their advantages and disadvantages in specific applications.
- Apply analytically the key techniques for image transformation, enhancement, restoration and segregation to simple images.
