The fields of graphics, vision and imaging increasingly rely on one another. This unique and timely MSc provides training in computer graphics, geometry processing, virtual reality, machine vision and imaging technology from world-leading experts, enabling students to specialise in any of these areas and gain a grounding in the others.

About this degree

Graduates will understand the basic mathematical principles underlying the development and application of new techniques in computer graphics and computer vision and will be aware of the range of algorithms and approaches available, and be able to design, develop and evaluate algorithms and methods for new problems, emerging technologies and applications.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of four core modules (60 credits), four optional modules (60 credits) and a research project (60 credits).

Compulsory modules

  • Computer Graphics (15 credits)
  • Image Processing (15 credits)
  • Mathematical Methods, Algorithmics and Implementations (15 credits)
  • Research Methods and Reading (15 credits)

Optional modules

Students must choose a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 30 credits from Group One options. Students must choose a minimum of 30 and a maximum of 45 credits from Group Two options.

  • Group One Options (15 to 30 credits)
  • Machine Vision (15 credits)
  • Virtual Environments (15 credits)
  • Group Two Options (30 to 45 credits)
  • Acquisition and Processing of 3D Geometry (15 credits)
  • Computational Modelling for Biomedical Imaging (15 credits)
  • Computational Photography and Capture (15 credits)
  • Geometry of Images (15 credits)
  • Information Processing in Medical Imaging (15 credits)
  • Introduction to Machine Learning (15 credits)
  • Inverse Problems in Imaging (15 credits)
  • Robotic Sensing, Manipulation and Interaction (15 credits)
  • Robotic Vision and Navigation (15 credits)

Please note: the availability and delivery of optional modules may vary, depending on your selection.

Dissertation/report

All students undertake an independent research project related to a problem of industrial interest or on a topic near the leading edge of research, which culminates in a 60–80 page dissertation.

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures and tutorials. Lectures are often supported by laboratory work with help from demonstrators. Student performance is assessed by unseen written examinations, coursework and a substantial individual project.

Please note that the list of modules given here is indicative. This information is published a long time in advance of enrolment and module content and availability is subject to change.
