Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Consolidate principles of theory and implementation of digital signal processing techniques; Introduce and consolidate concepts of image processing; Design and implement in software advanced signal and image processing applications.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module students will be able to: • Demonstrate an advanced understanding of the principles of digital signal and image processing; • Evaluate and compare specific filter designs, interpret filter analysis results and assess critically the merits and appropriateness of each filter for the given specifications and applications; • Critically assess the appropriateness of algorithms for image feature detection and justify trade-offs; • Design and implement in software specific solutions for voice analysis and synthesis and critically evaluate the results in an independent manner.
