Brief Description

This UL @ Work Professional Diploma in Computer Vision Systems will introduce students to the principles of computer vision, and rapidly advance their knowledge to state of the art vision systems. Students will learn about modern Deep Learning approaches to many Machine and Computer Vision problems across a wide range of applications, including object detection, 3D image processing and facial recognition.

The programme is specifically designed as a full online (or blended) programme, including video lectures and practical coding challenges to allow students to develop and apply their learning. The programme will be of interest to recent ICT, scientific or Engineering graduates who wish to further specialise in the field of computer vision. The programme will also be of interest to technical professionals seeking to apply computer vision techniques to products and processes within their employment.

The programme will be delivered fully online in 2021/2. Students will study specialist modules in :-

  • Introduction to Machine Vision Principles.
  • Design and Operation of Machine Vision Systems.
  • Geometric Computer Vision.
  • Intelligent Visual Computing and Applications.
  • Futures Portfolio Project Planning.

Students will experience a supportive and dynamic learning environment in which there will be an emphasis on peer learning, team learning, critical reflection and feedback. Through the virtual learning environment students will have an opportunity to engage with a range of learning methods and problems. Between session students will be supported by faculty and staff online.

On successful completion of this programme, the graduate will be able to:

Utilise classical and state of the art Computer Vision techniques and algorithms to develop new manufacturing process and product solutions.

Breakdown a Computer Vision problem and determine appropriate project management strategies to develop a solution.

Reflect on individual roles within an interdisciplinary process and workplace.
