|Course title||Image Processing and Computer Vision
|Course description||This course will cover fundamental knowledge and advanced topics in image processing and computer vision, including feature detection, segmentation, motion estimation, panorama construction, 3D reconstruction, scene detection and classification, color image processing and restoration. Applications in computer graphics will also be introduced, including image transformation, and camera calibration. Basic concepts of related algorithms and mathematic background will be discussed.

|Grade Descriptors||A/A-: EXCELLENT – exceptionally good performance and far exceeding expectation in all or most of the course learning outcomes; demonstration of superior understanding of the subject matter, the ability to analyze problems and apply extensive knowledge, and skillful use of concepts and materials to derive proper solutions.
B+/B/B-: GOOD – good performance in all course learning outcomes and exceeding expectation in some of them; demonstration of good understanding of the subject matter and the ability to use proper concepts and materials to solve most of the problems encountered.
C+/C/C-: FAIR – adequate performance and meeting expectation in all course learning outcomes; demonstration of adequate understanding of the subject matter and the ability to solve simple problems.
D+/D: MARGINAL – performance barely meets the expectation in the essential course learning outcomes; demonstration of partial understanding of the subject matter and the ability to solve simple problems.
F: FAILURE – performance does not meet the expectation in the essential course learning outcomes; demonstration of serious deficiencies and the need to retake the course.
