Course content

The European Masters in Computer Vision and Robotics (VIBOT) is a collaboration between the three leading European institutions, the Universitat de Girona (Spain), the Université de Bourgogne (France) and Heriot-Watt University (Scotland). It aims to meet the needs of industry for quality control and automation of industrial processes, and those in the field of health with the increasing importance of medical imagery in all its forms.

In recent years, the amount of digital information to be stored, processed and distributed has grown dramatically. The generalisation of the use of digital images, in video surveillance, biomedical and e-health systems, and remote sensing, create new, pressing challenges, and automated management tools are key to enable the organisation, mining and processing of these important knowledge resources.

The key subject areas are computer vision and robotics. Research in these areas are dynamic and relevant to a wide range of sectors, such as the car industry, the agro-alimentary field or the domain of health, with the active development of e-Health solutions. The course is over two years, students spend the first semester in France, the second in Spain and the third in Scotland. The fourth semester is reserved for Masters thesis.
