The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses. The Schools of Dentistry, Health Related Professionals and Medicine, and the Health Sciences Graduate School, are based in Jackson only. (Additional healthcare programs are available through the School of Applied Sciences on the Oxford campus.) Other than these exceptions, the schools above are on the Oxford campus.

Engs 673: Advanced Digital Image Processing

School of Engineering

This course teaches students advanced concepts in digital image processing, with explanations and examples that demonstrate how the topics can be applied to remotely sensed images. The course begins with a review of resolution, including spatial, spectral, temporal, and radiometric resolutions. Then the student has the option to choose between the next two modules; discrete image transforms and image quality metrics. The coverage of discrete image transforms includes theory and examples of sinusoidal, rectangular-waveform, eigen-based, and wavelet transforms. The unit on image quality metrics includes information about manual ratings, mean-square-error, signal-to-noise ratios, etc. After these two modules are completed, the student has the option of three more modules: image enhancement and restoration, image compression, and automated image analysis. For image enhancement, the student is introduced to noise models, as well as various spatial and spectral filters for noise removal. The image compression module introduces the student to transform-based compression schemes, with examples of lossy and lossless schemes. Finally, the automated image analysis module introduces the theory and practical application of 1) segmentation methods, including windowing, thresholding, edge detection, and morphological processing; 2) feature extraction methods, such as shape and texture features; and 3) feature reduction and optimization methods.
