This master has been designed to join the research expertise of four Barcelona universities to offer the students an updated programme of methods and foundations of an emerging technology as is computer vision, whose impact is increasing in a wide range of intelligent systems.

This master's degree programme attempts to tackle the need for qualified personnel in this field, since computer vision is becoming a fundamental component in multiple systems, such as assisting medical diagnosis and surgery, car driving, quality control and surveillance applications, and improving interfaces for multimedia data access.

The master as a whole is coordinated by the UAB (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), and the programme has been designed jointly with UOC (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya), UPC (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya) and UPF (Universitat Pompeu Fabra). Researchers from all 4 universities participate in this programme.

Career options

This master's degree provides skills and expertise that can be used in many fields, allows theoretical knowledge to be quickly applied and produces multidimensional engineering professionals who can work with many systems of various applications, such as image retrieval from content, interpretation and automatic annotation of videos, extracting three-dimensional information from different views and improving the appearance of the image content. It is a technological field that requires highly-trained personnel and is of rapidly increasing scientific interest.
