MIRI - Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality

Presentación

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.

Language

English

Oportunidades laborales

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.

  4. Diploma (or similar document). This document must confirm that the duration of the degree was at least three years and that is it a valid precursor to studies at postgraduate level (master’s degree) in that country. If that is not possible, it must indicate the level of higher education that the degree gives access to in the country where it was awarded.
  5. English knowledge Certificate (minimum: B2 of Common European Framework of Reference for Languages)
  6. If the applicant holds other qualifications related to the subject area of the Master’s Degree course applied for and that are different from those given to meet entrance requirements, it is necessary to include the original certificates and copy (or official copy) with the application.
IMPORTANT: All documents issued in countries that do not belong to the European Higher Education Area must be stamped and legalised by the appropriate government department, and translated into Spanish or Catalan language.

The Academic Committee is in charge of final decisions on students admission. It bases its decisions on following:
  • Final average grade for undergraduate degree that provides access to the master's degree
  • Suitability of the candidate's previous degree. Holders of bachelor's degrees in disciplines such as Informatics, Computer Science, Information Technology, Computer Engineering, etc. will be given preference
  • Ranking of the university issuing the previous degree, using the most common rankings (ARWU, QS World University, etc.)
  • Academic performance on the previous degree
  • Experience in innovation and research projects
  • Additional university degrees

Testimonio de los estudiantes



Mi experiencia personal en el máster en Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality es que se trabaja en profundidad las bases, mientras te dan una amplia visión sobre los temas de investigación más importantes de hoy en día. Además, gracias a la estrecha relación con el personal docente, fueron capaces de pedirnos nuestros intereses para añadirlos en los contenidos de algunas asignaturas. Creo que mi especialidad es la elección correcta para cualquiera persona que quiera trabajar en la investigación entorno a los videojuegos, películas de animación, el patrimonio cultural, ... También, el grupo Virving, que es responsable de la misma, realiza un seminario semanal con café y pasteles gratis!

Marc Comino - Bachelor Degree in Informatics Engineering at FIB

Ya estava trabajando como becaria de investigación en el momento en que acabé la licenciatura y estaba bastante segura de que el Máster en Innovación y Recerca en Informática sería mi mejor opción. A través de la especialidad de gráficos por ordenador y realidad virtual, profundice mis conocimientos sobre mi campo de interés y endurecí otros temas transversales al mismo tiempo. Las clases reducidas, el trato personal de los alumnos y la ayuda a crear un ambiente agradable. Guardo un gran recuerdo de aquellos dos años, en que conocí a gente de todo el mundo, mientras que abrí camino por mi carrera profesional.
