Expected learning outcomes

After completing the course, the student shall:
- Have good knowledge about how humans perceive colour, colorimetry, colour specification, instrumental and subjective methods for colour measurement and colour assessment
- Have knowledge about how image and colour information is digitized, processed, and optimised for publication in different media
- Understand the challenges of achieving consistent and accurate colour reproduction in different media, as well as being able to utilize state-of-the-art technology for effective colour management in media production
