Computer vision is the study of acquiring and interpreting visual imagery. With the exponential growth of digital images and videos captured by cameras the automated understanding of our visual world has never been more important. The field is advancing rapidly and its applications continue to expand in areas of great societal value. As computer vision shifts from research to development, there is a critical need for developers with expertise in this field. To meet the growing demand, The Robotics Institute has developed a 16 month (three semesters plus summer) professional Master’s program in Computer Vision (MSCV).
A Growing Field:In recent years computer vision has changed the way we view the world. Some examples of computer vision applications include image-based Internet searches, street-view related applications, robotics, face recognition for social networks, safety systems on vehicles, visual product identification and searches, human-computer interfaces for visual communication and gaming, disease diagnostics using medical imaging, visual inspection of machine parts, visual crop quality assessment, etc. To support the rapid development of these applications, major companies including Adobe, Amazon, Apple, Canon, Facebook, GE, Google, IBM, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Samsung and Siemens as well as numerous start-ups are forming computer vision groups.
MSCV Learning Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of the MSCV program students are expected to be proficient in:
