What is EIT Digital Master School?

The EIT Digital Master School is a collaboration between the best technical universities in Europe, top European research institutes and leading business partners. We aim to forge entrepreneurial talents in digital innovation through outstanding education. By joining the Master School, you are not just about to start a Master’s degree, you are stepping into a leading European open innovation organisation that brings together a partnership of over 200 top European corporations, SMEs, start-ups, universities and research institutes. 

Why study Visual Computing and Communication at EIT Digital?

Visual Computing and Communication focuses on the acquisition, processing, analysis, transmission, and rendering of visual information, including aspects of learning and decision making. It is an interdisciplinary programme at the intersection of computer science and information technology where students can be active in the areas of image processing and communication, image analysis, computer vision, computer graphics, augmented reality, visualisation, visual analytics, as well as web-based and network applications. Our graduates combine technological and business aspects to create products and services for our ocular-centric world.

Visual Computing and Communication is a perfect Masters education for those who are fascinated by the algorithms and services that handle visual information in today’s digital society. Students with excellent skills in data and signal processing, linear algebra, probability, and programming will thrive on this programme, which provides opportunities to solve real-world problems and to create new innovative solutions. There is a growing community of technologists and innovators in this challenging, yet rewarding field.

How is the programme structured?

All EIT Digital Master School programmes follow the same scheme:

  • Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe.
  • Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.
  • The first year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.
  • In between the first year and the second year, a summer school addresses business opportunities within a socially relevant theme.
  • The second year offers a specialisation and a graduation project. The gradation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and results in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.
