The Joint University Master's Degree in Computer Vision has been designed to train professionals and scientists in the emerging technology that is computer vision, to provide them with advanced knowledge of its principles and methods.
Demand for staff qualified in this field is growing, and this master's programme aims to make students competitive in the job market. Computer vision is not only a key part of many intelligent systems, it is also a critical component in fields as diverse as diagnostics and clinical surgery, driver assistance and self-driving vehicles, quality control, surveillance applications, and improvements to multimedia data interfaces.
Students will study both theoretical and practical aspects, and will acquire the skills required in high-calibre scientific workplaces, in academia or industry.
The Computer Vision programme draws upon the research expertise of four prestigious universities: the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) is the programme's coordinator, and the programme of study was designed together with the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and Pompeu Fabra University (UPF). The teaching staff is made up of researchers from all four universities. The courses are given on-site with the exception of those given by the UOC, which are online.
