Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

In order to be awarded the course-unit credit, students must prove 100 % active participation in laboratory exercises. The exam is oral where student compiles two main themes which were presented during the lectures.

Language of instruction

English

Work placements

Not applicable.

Aims

The goal of the course is understanding of the principles of digital image capturing and processing by students, within the context of industrial and scientific applications.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Attendance at lectures is recommended, attendance at seminars is obligatory and checked. Absences can be compensated for by attending a seminar with another group in the same week, or at the end of semester within a special seminar.
