To acquire this specialist knowledge, you can complete the major in Visual Computing as part of the following master’s degree programmes:
Depending on the degree programme, the Data Science major includes courses to the extent of 40 to 60 ECTS credit points.
Today, more and more information is represented as digital images and visual simulations. This is also reflected in numerous current application areas, such as social networks, industrial quality control, medical imaging, autonomous driving, robotic navigation, multimedia systems and video games.
Students majoring in Visual Computing learn the basic methods of image processing, pattern recognition and real-time graphics. Upon graduation, they will have fundamental knowledge of computer vision and 3D object modelling. Furthermore, they have advanced knowledge of mathematics, optimisation and machine learning. The areas of computer graphics, geometry processing and GPU programming are also addressed in advanced courses.
