Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

The students will get acquainted with the image processing basics theory (transformations, filtration, noise reduction, etc.). They will learn how to apply such knowledge on real examples of image processing tasks. They will also get acquainted with "higher" imaging algorithms. Finally, they will learn how to practically program image processing applications through projects.
Students will improve their teamwork skills and in exploitation of "C" language.
