MSc course


The material presented here is primarily intended for students taking the machine vision module of the University of Manchester's computer science MSc course, parts of which are taught by members of the Tina core programmers group (especially NAT). However, it may be of more general interest as an introduction to some of the algorithms provided by the Tina libraries.

MSc course

If you are taking module CS644 (taught in Computer Science) you will need to complete the pre-course Matlab practicals on the primer pages. If you are taking the course taught in ISBE (in the Stopford Building) you will work through the MSc course practicals during the Friday afternoon tutorials instead. Students on both courses should familiarise themselves with the terminology guide on the primer pages.

Primer material

Students should work through this material before taking the machine vision module of the MSc course.
