M.Sc. Computing with Vision and Imaging

University of Dundee | Dundee , United Kingdom
Computer vision and imaging is the exciting science and technology of machines that see, concerned with building artificial systems that obtain information from images that are derived from a range of sources. This MSc in Computing with Vision and Imaging teaches you the skills necessary to undertake work in this ever-evolving field.


Why study MSc Computing with Vision and Imaging at Dundee?

Computer vision and imaging is a rapidly expanding field with plenty of real-life applications and opportunities. Here at Dundee, we encourage a professional, inter-disciplinary and user-centred approach to computer systems design and production.

Application areas include:

  • controlling processes - e.g. an industrial robot or an autonomous vehicle
  • detecting events - e.g. for visual surveillance or people counting
  • organising information - e.g. for indexing databases of images and image sequences
  • modelling objects or environments - e.g. for industrial inspection
  • medical image analysis
  • topographical modelling

You will acquire skills in computer vision, inference, algorithmic underpinnings of computer vision systems, how images and signals are formed, filter, compressed and analysed, and how multiple images can be combined.

Throughout this course, you will also develop the necessary skills to undertake independent research and participate in proposal development and innovation - an excellent grounding for many future careers.
