The aim of this module is to provide students with the skills required to understand and write software programs for image processing and scientific computing. More specifically the module will provide the students with the ability to develop programs that will read, analyse and display a range of different data formats. Within this the students will gain an understanding of the basic principles of computing and the ability to develop algorithms to process data. The software used for this course will be IDL
