Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to apply system theory to image processing problems. They will be familiar with the hardware and software used for image processing, in detail, and understand how they work together based on examples. Students will be able to identify and understand quality assurance tasks in the broadest sense of the term and implement them. Practical application is the main focus here.
