Course description

The students will learn by case applications how to take full advantage of the computational methods available to process, enhance and analyse the imaging and characterisation data they have. A closer look at the methods developed in the I4FUTURE program and utilized to solve real life challenges will be presented.

The course consists of lectures, discussions, tutorials and reflective learning diary (instructions here).
