Course Description

Course Objectives:

The objective of this course is to provide the knowledge of image processing and pattern recognition and apply these concepts in image processing and recognition applications of having commercial values in industry and business management. 

Course Description:

The course content is mainly focused on developing the sound theoretical foundation of all of the digital image processing stages, ranging from creation to acquisition and pre-processing to restoration. The course also requires programming assignments for deeper understanding of the various stages of image processing and pattern recognition.

Course Outcomes:

  • Thorough understanding of theoretical foundation of fundamental Digital Image manipulation and processing steps like acquisition; preprocessing; segmentation; Fourier domain processing
  • Skills on exploration and appropriate use of image processing methods / tools for business and management applications
