Textbook: DIPA: Digital Image Enhancement, Restoration and Compression, 4^{th} Edition, SE Umbaugh, Taylor&Francis/CRC Press, 2023; Supplementary documents are available at the publisher’s web site
Prerequisite: ECE 351 and programming experience, or consent of instructor
Class Format: Two lectures and 1 lab per week, two tests, and term project
Web Site Imaging Examples: CVIPtools Imaging Examples
Goals and Objectives: Introduce the student to analytical tools and methods which are currently used in digital image processing as applied to image information for human viewing. Then apply these tools in the laboratory in image enhancement, image restoration and an introduction to image compression.
TEST #1
TEST #2
PROJECT DUE  16th week
Project will be some application of image enhancement, restoration or coding/compression technique to digital image(s). Software will be written in Matlab or C/C++ to implement the image processing method.

Class
Attendance Policy: Based on
University Class Attendance Policy 1I9: It is the responsibility of students to
ascertain the policies of instructors with regard to absence from class, and to
make arrangements satisfactory to instructors with
regard to missed course work. Failure to attend the first session of a course
may result in the student’s place in class being assigned to another
student.
Class
Policies: If you have a
documented disability that requires academic accommodations, please go to
Disability Support Services for coordination of your academic accommodations.
DSS is located in the Student Success Center, Room 1270; you may contact them
to make an appointment by calling (618) 6503726 or sending an email to disabilitysupport@siue.edu. Please
visit the DSS website located online at: www.siue.edu/dss for more information.
Students are
expected to be familiar with and follow the Student Academic Code. It is
included in the SIUE Policies and Procedures under Section 3C2.2.

Present project to the class 
Semester Project: The project will consist of designing experiments, implementing algorithms, and analyzing the results for an image processing problem. You should work in groups of 2. The project will be selected by the students, subject to approval by the professor. The proposal, due week 10, will include: 1) topic, 2) algorithms to be explored, 3) number and type of images to be used, 4) method of evaluation of results
A paper will be written describing the project and discussing what was learned during the project. The final paper should be about 8 to 15 pages, typed and doublespaced; include images ! In the paper include an appendix containing program listing(s). The students will give a 5 minute presentation of their project in the lab to the class, the professor, and the lab instructor. Do NOT go over 5 minutes and do not have more than 10 PowerPoint slides! Also, an evaluation for each group member will be handed in or emailed with the report.
Ø
In addition to handing in a paper copy of the
report, email me a soft copy of the Word file. Before you send me the
file give
it a meaningful name that includes your last name(s) and the
project title.
Grading: The project is worth 25% of your term grade, broken down as follows:
Due Dates
Ø Week 10: Brief, 1 page max., project proposal
Ø Week 16 (Finals week): Project paper due. Presentation//demo (finals week)
Suggested Project Process:
· NOTE: If you do not have any specific images that you want to use, take a look at the image databases on the Internet, such as:

Paper Format Outline
General: reports should be typed, double spaced, pages numbered starting with abstract. Number of pages? do what is necessary, but keep it concise, extra stuff can go in an appendix. DO NOT put in plastic folder, simply staple in upper left hand corner.
