CET724 Image Processing for Vision

Course Provider

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)



Academic Unit



Machine vision plays an important role in vision-based automation. Image processing is commonly used in industrial vision-based automation systems to reduce the computation and cost of the systems. Hence, it is essential to learn the fundamentals of image processing tailored from the viewpoint of machine vision. 

This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Computer Control and Automation
- FlexiMasters  in Computer Control and Automation
