Virtual and Augmented Reality at Institut Polytechnique de Paris provides students with the fundamental background and technical skills for developing innovative industrial applications, as well as cutting-edge research programs, in the fields of virtual and augmented reality technologies.


Virtual and Augmented Reality at Institut Polytechnique de Paris naturally leads to careers in various industrial domains - including computer aided design in aeronautics and mechanical/automobile engineering, architecture and urbanism design, digital cinema and special effects, video games, video-surveillance, simulation and control, medical imaging, e-commerce and e-marketing - at different levels of responsibility such as project manager, expert engineer, project designer and R&D engineer.

During the first year dedicated to Electrical Engineering for Communication, the student chooses a major in Telecommunication Networking and Multimedia. It aims to provide the foundations to understand, practice, and contribute to the development of new-generation communication techniques and networking, content coding and delivery systems such as 5G networks, connected devices, machine-to-machine communication, as well as the need for very low-delay and high-reliability networks.

During the second year, students will acquire the fundamental concepts in computer vision, computer graphics, deep-learning methods and human-computer interfaces, while during the second semester they will complete a research internship to gain practical experience.

Students interested early on by research are advised to apply for a PhD Track in this field (combined Master and PhD). It enables a personalized master program, early immersion in research labs and a progressive development of the thesis studies. 


Students graduating from this program will be equipped to pursue a career in various industries as a:

  • AR/VR project manager
  • Expert engineer
  • Project designer
  • R&D engineer

Programme Structure

This Master’s program allows students to:

  • Master fundamental concepts in computer vision (including methods for acquiring, processing, analyzing and understanding digital images, artificial intelligence), computer graphics (including geometry primitives, texture mapping, animation and deformation, rendering and lighting algorithms), deep learning methods and human-computer interfaces (e.g. advanced visual programming, toolboxes, web interfaces, user centric design, evaluation, ergonomics, robotics)
  • Address all the key elements relating to virtual and augmented reality systems and applications including sensors, scene modeling, natural and synthetic content aggregation, interaction, spatial and temporal registration, object tracking and immersive rendering
