(Note I am posting this review after each course since I am unable to post an overall review for the specialization)
I recently completed this course as part of the 3 week specialization "Image Processing for Science and Engineering". I think the Mathworks team really did a great job of walking a student step by step from initial concepts into direct applications. I think many courses I have taken (for example for AI Computer Vision) can be overly theory heavy and can miss making the proper connection into doing something useful. Here, with all of the courses, they made a great overview of the software technology and apps that are available in MATLAB and gave great examples for how to quickly utilize them. MATLAB had many tools available that do a lot of the heavy lifting and function generation for you, so you can start attacking problems right away. I also thought the challenge level was appropriate. Some of the final projects are involved, but if you are doing the training properly you won't have much issue. The course developers were very responsive in offering advice if I got stuck. If you are doing anything that requires you to process/alter large blocks of photos (or videos) I strongly recommend you check these courses out.

The specialization was wonderful. I've worked on MATLAB before but never in image processing. They did a great job of explaining the concepts, and covered most of the why, what and how's and I'm extremely satisfied with the courses. You should be familiar with MATLAB before taking this course.
