About

The Informatics - IPAB - Robotics, Computer Vision, Computer Graphics and Animation programme offered by The University of Edinburgh focuses on how to link computational perception, representation, transformation and generation processes to external worlds, in theory and in practice.

Overview

The Informatics - IPAB - Robotics, Computer Vision, Computer Graphics and Animation programme offered by The University of Edinburgh covers domains such as visual perception, dynamic control of robot systems, active sensing and decision making, biomimetic robotics, computer-based generation of external phenomena, such as images, music or actions, and agent-based interaction within computer games and animation.

Supported by the dynamic research culture of IPAB, you can develop robots that learn their own motor control, mimic animal behaviours, or produce autonomous and coordinated team actions. Or you can work with systems that interpret real images and video, or generate complex behaviour in animated characters.

We aim to link strong theoretical perspectives with practical hands-on construction, and provide the hardware and software support to realise this vision.

Career opportunities:

While many of our graduates go on to highly successful academic careers, others find their niche in commercial research labs, putting their knowledge and skills to use in an industry setting.

Several of our recent graduates have set up or joined spin-out robotics companies. Our graphics researchers have strong connections to the media and games industries.

Programme Structure

  • You carry out your research within a research group under the guidance of a supervisor.
