After the completion of this course, the participants will have acquired a high level of skills enabling them to use the technique in an informed way and produce accurate, quantitative, validated results. During the 5-day course on Digital Image Correlation(DIC),specific focus will be on:
In addition, the lab sessions are organized in small groups of two, whereas the data processing involves individual computer sessions to maximize the learning experience.
After the completion of this course, the participants will have acquired a high level of skills enabling them to use the technique in an informed way and produce accurate, quantitative, validated results.
Theoretical lectures aim to teach the concepts used in DIC. The lecture contents range from basic imaging techniques to advanced module implementation and post-processing.
Lab-sessions are organized in small-groups of two to maximize the one-on-one interaction and learning with a hands-on approach to understand how to optimize your experiment on a step-by-step basis.
Evaluate and post-process your experimental data. Every participant is provided with a computer guaranteeing an individual learning curve.

The DIC course will take place in Ghent, Belgium - a city at the heart of Europe. The Lonely Planet "Best in Travel" guide elected Ghent as one of the 10 most interesting cities to visit. Ghent is in 7th place, after cities like New York and Tanger. By train, Ghent is about 0.5 hours away from Brussels, 2 hours from Paris, 3 hours from Amsterdam and 3.5 hours from London.
Registration includes attendance to all the sessions, lab access, equipment, participation certificate, a hardcopy of the course-slides, lunches, tea/coffee, welcome drinks, and a social event with dinner.
