Multi-dimensional processing and the generation of real and virtual data have a multitude of applications in our world today. Imaging systems are used widely in medicine, space exploration and remote sensing, video processing, security, and biometrics, while computer graphics are the cornerstone for games, animation, special effects, graphic design, geometric modelling, virtual reality and a host of other applications.

However a gap exists between imaging and graphics experts, and there is a need for well-qualified professionals with expertise in both these areas to take a lead in exploiting and developing existing and new visual technologies.

Our course aims to equip you with a mastery of relevant technologies in the fields of image processing, computer vision and graphics and their different real-life applications.

You will develop a mastery of multidisciplinary skills that will enable you to process real-life multi-dimensional data and apply and develop appropriate technologies and evaluation methods.

We will enable you to master the combination and integration of practical and theoretical methods to solve real-life problems using image processing, machine learning, computer vision and computer graphics.
