For details of how to apply to this MSc course option at Cranfield University please see the entry in the university prospectus. Alternatively this couse is now (from 2009 onwards) offered to external delegates as an professional development module.

Before emailing with a question - please check the module PAQ


The Digital Image Processing component makes up part of the Digital Signal and Image Processing component of the MSc Computational and Software Techniques in Engineering taught by the Applied Mathematics and Computing Group in the School of Engineering.

Students are expected to have a working knowledge of C/C++ and have attended the prior signal processing and signal analysis components of the MSc course. External students from within Cranfield University are most welcome on the course but are requested to inform the course lecturer first. Relevant computing, mathematical and/or industrial experience is assumed for external students opting to take the course.

  •  Image Processing (IP) Module :

    Expand Course Syllabus 

    Course MessageThe most powerful method of sensing available to humans is vision. In computing visual information is represented as a digital image. In order to process visual information in computer systems we need to know about processing digital images. Here we focus upon the task of low-level visual processing. 

    Course SummaryImage Processing Essentials 
    Course Notes : [PDF] Example Exam Paper [PDF]

  •  Image Analysis (IA) Module: 

    Expand Course Syllabus 

    Course MessageDigital Image Processing allows us to process visual information in computer systems. By processing visual information we can develop automated visual interpretation and understanding – artificial vision, itself a large part of wider field of the Artificial Intelligence. In order to achieve this we must be able to extract high-level visual information such as edges and regions from images and additionally allow for the efficient storage of large amounts of visual data. Here we concentrate on mid-level visual interpretation and image compression.
    Course Summary1) Mid-level vision : feature extraction & processing, 2) Image compression 3) Image de-blurring

  •  Applications of Digital Signal Processing & Computer Vision (Computer Vision Module component)

    Expand Course Syllabus 

    Course MessageThe low-level and mid-level visual understanding achievable using various digital image processing techniques allow us to tackle the Artificial Intelligence problem of artificial visual sensing – computer vision (also termed 'robot vision'). By developing these techniques further we can apply image processing to a number of different visual inspection and understanding tasks within the realm of science and engineering. Here we investigate applied digital image processing in the form of computer vision – the automated interpretation and understanding of visual information. 

    Course SummaryAn introduction to computer vision applications 
    Course Notes : [PDF] Lab Tutorial [1] [Chessboard Target]

In line with Cranfield University policy access to copies of the course notes is restricted to members of the university and/or external students studying this course. These notes are handed out to course attendees. Please contact the course lecturer to gain access permission.
