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.


Those interested in enrolling in this master's degree can apply for one of the grants offered by the Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation for academic year 2017-18, for graduates enrolling in master's degrees.
