About the Course

In this course students will learn through practice the application of different machine learning methods to problems involving medical images. The Master-Praktikum will consist in:

  • (1) a few introductory lectures on machine learning and its application in different problems involving medical imaging,
  • (2) a number of exercises to apply different learning approaches to toy example data,
  • (3) a machine learning project with a real medical application to be solved in groups (pairs).

Regular meetings will be held individually with each group to follow up the progress of the project along the semester


  • Homework attestations (20%)
  • Practical implementation of the project (50%)
  • Midterm (5%) and final (15%) Presentations:Use the CAMP templates for PowerPoint CAMPmaster.pot, or Latex: CAMP-latex-template.zip.
  • Report (10%): Maximum 8 pages. Please download and use the llncs2e.zip Latex template.


  • Interested students should attend the introductory meeting to enlist in the course.
  • Students can only register through TUMOnline themselves if the maximum number of participants hasn't been reached by end of February.
  • Maximum number of participants: 20.


  • Basic knowledge in MATLAB and C/C++ programming is an advantage.
