Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Teaching methods include lectures and computer exercises. Course is taking advantage of the e-learning (Midas) system.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Weekly laboratory exercises (20 pts), projects (20 pts) and a final exam (60 pts) are evaluated during the Computer Vision course. For successful pass the course, obtaining of at least half of available points is required in all mentioned parts.
