MIRI - Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality

Presentació

About

The goal of the master’s degree is to expose students to in-depth, state-of-the-art computer graphics with a focus on knowledge of technology, the design of efficient algorithms and the solution of real-life problems. Specifically, the master’s degree addresses new challenges that arise in building digital models and interactive renderings using commodity hardware and mobile devices, with applications in fields such as industrial design, cultural heritage, medicine, urban design and animation. Students will also master the fundamentals for starting a research or professional career in a range of Computer Graphics domains.

Target

Students are expected to have a bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering or related fields. Candidates with weak computer programming skills will also be considered but they may be required to take complementary courses.

Seminar activities

The activities to obtain the SIRI credits can be done in any semester of the master's degree. Consult the detail of the seminars.

Elective

It is also possible:

  • Recognize credits for "External Practices" or "Laboral and Professional Experience"
  • Take courses from other MIRI specialties
  • Take courses from other masters at the UPC

Oportunitats laborals

Students of the master’s degree will develop expertise in modeling and treating geometric and volumetric data, as well as knowledge of the management, manipulation, interaction and rendering of highly complex geometric systems with application in fields such as industrial design, computer games, urban design, medical imaging, cultural heritage.

The master’s degree incorporates the latest advances in 3D computer graphics modeling, crowd simulation, real‐time rendering and animation, lighting effects, scientific visualization, interaction, mobile technology and augmented and virtual reality.

Upon completion of the degree, our graduates will possess the necessary skills to join a leading international corporation, create a start-up, or enroll in a doctoral program in any computer graphics field.

In the past, graduates have been hired by companies and universities such as Sener, ALMA IT Systems, Mediapro, Nvidia, HP, UB, Trinity College Dublin, the Universitat de Barcelona, and Linköping University. The faculty maintains continuous collaborations with these and other centers, including CNR-Pisa, Georgia Tech-Atlanta, CRS4-Sardenya, UPenn-Pennsylvania, Vall-Hebron Hospital, and INDO.

Testimoni dels estudiants



La meva experiència personal en el màster in Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality és que es treballa en profunditat els fonaments, mentre et donen una àmplia visió sobre quins són els temes de recerca més importants avui en dia. A més, gràcies a l'estreta relació amb el personal docent, van ser capaços de demanar-nos els nostres interessos per afegir-los en els continguts d'algunes assignatures. & Nbsp; Crec que la meva especialitat és l'elecció correcta per a qualsevol persona que vulgui treballar en la investigació entorn als videojocs , pel·lícules d'animació, el patrimoni cultural, ...
D'altra banda, el grup Virvig, que és responsable de la mateixa, porta a terme un seminari setmanal amb cafè i pastissos gratis!

Marc Comino - Bachelor Degree in Informatics Engineering at FIB

Ja estava treballant com a becari d'investigació en el moment en que vaig acabar la llicenciatura i estava bastant segur que el Màster en Innovació i Recerca en Informàtica seria la meva millor opció. A través de la especialitat de gràfics per ordinador i Realitat Virtual, vaig aprofundir els meus coneixements sobre el meu camp d'interès i l'enfortiment d'alguns altres temes transversals al mateix temps. La petita grandària de les classes & nbsp; el tracte personal dels alumnes i l'ajuda a crear un ambient agradable. Guardo un gran record d'aquests dos anys, en què vaig conèixer a gent de tot el món, mentre que vaig obrir el camí per a la meva carrera professional.
