International Master's Programmes

Master's Programme in Computer Science and Engineering

This research-oriented degree provides an exciting opportunity to study in a leading-edge research environment, and gives students the flexibility to choose between two themes: a) Computer Vision and Signal Processing, and b) Ubiquitous Computing.

The first theme, Computer Vision and Signal Processing, provides students a solid theoretical understanding and practical skills on digital information processing and analysis.  This information can be, for example, image, video, or audio signals that are perceived from the environment and processed using various operations such as filtering, compression and classification. The students are introduced to the essentials of computer vision as well as image and signal processing methods and technologies.  

The second theme, Ubiquitous Computing, focuses on the next generation of interactive systems that place humans at the focus of the technological development. Adopting a multidisciplinary real-world approach, students have to spend a substantial amount of time working in group projects to develop a variety of systems ranging from interactive online services to games and mobile applications, with a strong focus on innovation and design. Students gain experience in conducting usability tests with human participants, conducting experiments to evaluate their systems, and applying an iterative design approach to develop and improve their systems.

This Master’s programme is provided by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, and students are strongly encouraged to work closely with research groups in the department that are international leaders in their fields. Furthermore, the programme provides graduates with the competence to continue as postgraduate students aiming for a doctoral degree, or in a wide variety of positions offered by research institutes and companies.
