Course contents:
Image analysis is an important subject field in the academic world and in industry. The course gives an introduction to modern techniques that help the student to a comprehensive understanding of how to measure and analyse phenomena in nature. Great emphasis in this course is placed on gaining knowledge and understanding through practical exercises. It is important for the student"s further studies to see the applicability of image analysis in many different subject fields. The student will learn how to program simple applications in imaging. The student shall acquire the knowledge needed to develop analysis methods by means of various types of program tools. Another important point is that the student should be able to participate in evaluations concerning the selection of suitable equipment for applications. Updated information is given at the course website.
