Learning outcomes:
The module Image Processing and Pattern Recognition aims to teach students how systems theory can be applied to tackle problems in image processing. Students will acquire the skills needed to assess the interaction of hardware and software components in image processing systems. After completing this course, students will have the skills required to select image processing and pattern recognition techniques for specific practical applications and to deploy suitable methods of image information extraction.
As the module includes authentic applications drawn from the field of quality assurance, students will be taught the practically relevant criteria that need to be fulfilled in such cases.
