FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE
The first semester is devoted to a concise study of the theoretical
background, the mathematical models and the algorithms
used in image and signal processing. The second semester additionally
focuses on geometric modelling, audio processing and
other media. Starting with the third semester, specific application
scenarios are discussed and corresponding technologies are investigated.

APPLY YOUR SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE
Students start research on their master thesis and acquire
profound IT-project management skills. The fourth semester is
dedicated to the completion of the master thesis. An accompanying
master seminar provides the opportunity for scientific
discourse by presenting and defending the different approaches

Image and signal processing applications in medicine are optimized with respect to the numerous modalities and sensors used. Images need to be segmented, co-registered and processed with respect to contextual knowledge. Students get to know the most popular tools and libraries, and acquire competences in designing solutions for tomorrow‘s medical technology.
Hardware Oriented Signal Processing
Modern architectures for processing images and signals require tailored implementations of algorithmic concepts which exploit the functional framework of the hardware environment and achieve the best possible performance. Students study concepts like fixed point formats, parallelization and hardware description languages and become experts in designing applications on dedicated hardware.
Students study biometric technologies and learn the most common modalities for the identification of individuals. Implications on security and privacy are discussed. Biometry is a generic topic in that various methods and concepts can be found in many other areas of image and signal processing as well, and in that the optimization of systems with respect to risk minimization is of a general nature.
Concepts for encryption, authentification and robust labelling of multimedia data are presented and their application in media forensics is discussed. Since different modalities require highly specialized methods, students will become experts in a range of such algorithms and will be able to design applications that achieve a good compromise between robustness, speed and usability.
Advanced Remote Sensing
Students are introduced to object-based image analysis. They explore multilevel segmentation- and classification hierarchies that allow the extraction of relevant information from aerial and satellite images. Students also become familiar with a suite of professional software tools for designing geographical information systems.
A completed bachelors or diploma programme in the field of informatics or mathematics or related to those, three year´s minimum duration, including core areas informatics and mathematics by a minimum number of 18 and 12 ECTS credit points or 12 and 9 contact hours per week, respectively.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
Above all, it is the individual student who is the central focus of attention. It is our aim to equip our students with the academic knowledge and domain-specific skills requisite for their future careers as well as to build their social competence.
