Covering the physics of imaging and related techniques, there is also focus on specialised content covering image processing and analysis.

Students will also be able to make use of the MATLAB computing environment and programming language.

This programme harnesses our expertise in image processing and analysis, which will allow learners to train in this field via an online learning environment.

Career opportunities

Medical image analysis and processing has great significance in the field of medicine, especially in non-invasive treatment and clinical study.

There is a clear need for the accurate interpretation and analysis of medical images, which often involves the need of a computer aided system to understand the image, the image structure and to know what it means.

We anticipate that this programme will help learners from a range of disciplines to acquire a knowledge base & skill set which will support engagement and employment in the field of image processing and analysis.
