Image Processing Projects For Engineering Students

Nowadays, “Image processing” is normally used by a wide range of applications and in different types of electronics like computers, digital cameras, mobile phones, etc. The image properties can be changed with the least investment such as contrast enhancement, borders detection, intensity measurement & apply different mathematical functions to enhance the imagery. Even though these methods can be very influential, the consumer frequently controls images with the dump, but understanding the fundamental values behind the effortless image processing routine is rare. Though this may be suitable for some persons, it frequently leads to a picture that is extensively corrupted. In this article, we will discuss the basics of image processing and digital image processing projects using MATLAB, Python, etc.

What is Image Processing?

The method of image processing is used to do some processes on a picture like an image enhancement or to remove some functional data from the image. Image processing is one kind of signal processing, where the input is a picture, as well as the output, are features or characteristics allied with the image.


At the present time, the image processing technique is highly used across different industries, which is used to form core investigate regions in engineering as well as in different disciplines too. Basically, the step by step image processing steps is discussed below.

  • Click the image using digital cameras;
  • Studying and operating the image;
  • The output of the image can be changed based on the analysis of the image.

Image processing can be done by using two methods namely analog image processing as well as digital-image-processing. The primary image processing (analog) technique is employed for photographs, printouts. Etc. Image analyst uses different basics of understanding while using some of the image techniques. The secondary image processing (Digital) technique will assist in digital image analysis by using a PC.
