Computer Vision


Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module builds upon knowledge obtained during the 1st semester.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The objective of this course module is to provide students with core competencies within the field of computer vision and hereby enabling them to design and implement software systems for automatic or semi-automatic analysis of an image or sequence of images

Learning objectives


  • Must have knowledge about the terminology within computer vision
  • Must be able to understand how a particular computer vision system e.g. the Semester project of the student, relates to similar systems and, if relevant, to the surrounding society


  • Must be able to analyze a problem and (if possible) suggest a solution that uses relevant theories and methods from computer vision
  • Must be able to analyze a system that is based on computer vision and identify relevant constraints and assessment criteria.
  • Must be able to synthesize, i.e., design and implement, a system (or parts hereof) using relevant theories and methods (if possible) from computer vision
  • Must be able to evaluate a computer vision system (or parts hereof) with respect to the afore mentioned assessment criteria


  • Must be able to communicate the above knowledge and skills (using proper terminology) both orally and in a written report
  • Must be able to select relevant computer vision theories, methods, and tools, and synthesize them in a new context to produce new knowledge and solutions
