How is your camera able to detect whether the person in front of it is smiling or not? How is it possible to create non-real figures and insert them into a motion picture? Why are some products so appealing and easy to use, while others are not? Together, these topics form the core of the Vision, Graphics and Interactive Systems programme of Aalborg University.


Why choose this programme?

  • Because you want to make increasingly intelligent systems which are able to understand, recognise and react to what it sees
  • Because you want to improve the established connection between you and everyday technologies.

What does it contain?

Computer vision is a field which covers processing and analysis of images to give an understanding of what is captured by machines. Computer graphics covers all about displaying and how to represent things thanks to different methods supported by software and hardware. Finally, the interactive systems part is concerned with how to create and/or improve your experience of using your daily devices, for example the reaction of your TV, when you are browsing channels or how much fun it is to play the latest game on your phone.

These topics cover a large band of technologies and theories which will be a part of our future for sure.

How is it done?

  • By combining theoretical knowledge gained from the courses with practical hands-on experience
  • Semester projects centred on a general theme
  • Semester courses (mandatory as well as elective)
  • 1-2 weeks mini projects for particular subjects
  • Well-equipped laboratories with all the necessary tools to build your project
  • Helpful and open-minded teachers, willing to help you with your questions and ideas and to guide you through complex concepts.

The Vision, Graphics and Interactive Systems programme of Aalborg University is research-based and shifts between theory and practical project work, where you can apply the theories introduced in the lectures. Through the projects you will be designing and building software systems within the fields of Computer Vision, Graphics and Interactive Systems.
