Course Description

MATLAB is a high-level language that enables you to quickly perform computation and visualization through easy-to-use programming constructs.

This is a three-day course. On the first and second days, the course provides hands-on experience with performing image analysis. Examples and exercises demonstrate the use of appropriate MATLAB® and Image Processing Toolbox™ functionality throughout the analysis process. On the third day, the course provides hands-on experience with performing computer vision tasks. Examples and exercises demonstrate the use of appropriate MATLAB® and Computer Vision System Toolbox™ functionality.

Computer (PC or Mac) and an internet access are required. Simultaneous access to two screens is highly recommended for best learning experience. Examples include one computer with two screens, one laptop and one tablet, two laptops, etc. A headset is also recommended.

Topics include

Image Processing (2-day)

  • Importing and exporting images
  • Removing noise
  • Aligning images
  • Detecting, extracting, and matching image features
  • Detecting edges, lines, and circles in an image
  • Segmenting objects based on their color and texture
  • Modifying objects' shape using morphological operations
  • Measuring shape properties
  • Performing batch analysis over sets of images

Computer Vision (1-day)

  • Importing, displaying, and annotating videos
  • Detecting objects in videos
  • Estimating motion of objects
  • Tracking a single object or multiple objects
  • Removing lens distortion and measuring planar objects

Class size is limited to 25 students.


MATLAB Fundamentals or equivalent experience using MATLAB*. Basic knowledge of image processing and computer vision concepts.

Course Materials
This workshop is offered by MathWorks, the developer of MATLAB.  Each attendee receives e-files of the course manual, a unique code to login to a virtual lab, and a link to join the WebEx.

FAES will share your email address as provided during the registration process with MathWorks who will grant you temporary MATLAB access.

Certificates of Completion
Certificates of completion from MathWorks are emailed to all attendees at the end of each course.

Continuing Education Units
Although no grades are given for courses, each participant will receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) based on the number of contact hours. One CEU is equal to ten contact hours. Upon completion of the course, each participant will receive a certificate for 2.1 CEUs.

Refund Policy
