Knowledge and understanding of laws and principles of imaging processing, and their application to diverse areas of physics. An ability to solve problems in image processing using appropriate mathematical tools.
Competent use of appropriate C&IT packages/systems for the analysis of images and the retrieval of appropriate information.
An ability to present, process and interpret information graphically.
An ability to make use of appropriate texts, research-based materials or other learning resources as part of managing their own learning.
Problem-solving skills, in the context of both problems with well-defined solutions and open-ended problems; an ability to formulate problems in precise terms and to identify key issues, and the confidence to try different approaches in order to make progress on challenging problems. Numeracy is subsumed within this area.
Analytical skills – associated with the need to pay attention to detail and to develop an ability to manipulate precise and intricate ideas, to construct logical arguments and to use technical language correctly.
