Can the Image Processing Industry Be Entered Without A Specialized Degree?

Started by Space1999 August 16, 2006
Hi All

I have a BEng in Electrical and a solid background in C++. I am very
familiar with DSP theory from self-study only. I have familiarity good
with MATLAB. Recently I bought Embedded Image Processing on the
TMS320C6000=99 DSP. Soon I plan to buy the C6416 DSK development
platform to practice the exercises involving MATLAB, Code Composer
Studio, and C. The topics covered are advanced like Pattern
Recognition, Adaptive Processing, Wavelets. The reason why I am doing
all this is to enter the image processing industry. For those of you
who are experts in the field. In your opinion is my thinking and
approach correct for entering the field by teaching myself skills?
Thanks in advance for your answers.

Sure -- but don't expect to get a job developing algorithms right off. Instead, aim for a job using those EE or C++ skills to make hardware or software that implement the algorithms. If you can really do the algorithm work doors will open for you eventually. -- Tim Wescott Wescott Design Services http://www.wescottdesign.com Posting from Google?

^^^ Sorry for the error. I was not addressing you, Tim Wescott, but rather Space1999. But then you all probably figured that out. But then, I knew that you all figured this out and didn't have to post this. So why am I posting this? Why am I here? What's the meaning of life?

Lets take those questions one at a time. You posted because you have too much time on your hands. You're here because you like the company. So life has a meaning? Why do you think so, Eliza? Negative frequencies are in the eye of the beholder. What happens when your eyes are shut?

The existence of negative frequencies can be debated. The existence of negative attitudes about negative frequencies is a given. :-) Steve
