PhD Studentship in Image Processing for Precision Farming Technology, Malaysia


The Vision & Robotics Research Group (VIROB) is the expertise centre - at the Faculty of Engineering, National University of Malaysia - for machine vision technology. VIROB possesses comprehensive knowledge in the area of system integration and technology development and has product- and process knowledge to implement innovations together with industries. In addition, it has good networking with universities, knowledge organizations and engineering companies within and outside Malaysia. VIROB therefore plays a pivoting role in the coordination of supply and demand of such knowledge and technology. Our research areas range from fundamental computer vision methodologies to machine vision applications.

PhD details

The candidate will be required to carry out international level research in image analysis, features extraction and classification. This will involve developing a novel and robust technique for automated vision recognition for data collection in precision farming technology. The candidate would be expected to have a higher honours degree in electrical or computer science discipline. Prior computer vision experience, programming in MATLAB & C would be advantageous. This research will be supervised by Prof. Dr. Mohd Marzuki Mustafa and Prof. Dr. Aini Hussain.


The studentship will be funded for up to 3 years (subject to satisfactory progresssion) at a level of RM1,800/month. University fee and living cost are not covered.
