Course Introduction

This pathway will equip you with the knowledge and skills required to specify and build computer vision embedded systems, choosing from different imaging devices and applying software that can process and understand images. You will study a range of option modules encompassing computing, engineering and digital media processing. It may also be possible for you to undertake a real'world project in an industrial placement or as part of high'quality research working alongside DIRC (Digital Imaging Research Centre) groups (eg visual surveillance, human body motion analysis, robotics, medical imaging). The course can be combined with Management Studies enabling you to develop business and management skills so you can work effectively with business managers to develop innovative and imaginative ways to exploit computer vision and embedded systems for business advantage. This is a key skill for employability, particularly as organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors grapple with austerity.
