Master Computer Vision

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

Description of Computer Vision


Those interested in enrolling in this master's degree can apply for one of the grants offered by the Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation for graduates enrolling in master's degrees. A total of 5,000 Euros is offered in one enrolment aid for this master's degree. To apply you must have an excellent student record, a Spanish passport and you must enrol in the course full-time.

This master degree program 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 cirurgy, car driving, quality control and surveillance applications, or improving interfaces for multimedia data access.

The master as a whole is coordinated by UAB (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), and program 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 are participating in this program.

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.

Universitat AutÚnoma de Barcelona, Spain

Spain The Universitat AutÚnoma de Barcelona was founded in 1968. The founders aimed to establish four principles of autonomy: freedom to select teaching staff, admission available to all students (but with a limited number), freedom to create its own study plans and freedom to administrate the University's capital. It is therefore a young university, but in its short history it has moved forward at a rapid pace.
