Program Description

MSc Computer Vision

Oxford Brookes University, Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment

This course is run by the Department of Computing and Communication Technologies.

This exciting MSc builds on Brookes' world-leading research in Computer Vision. The course is responsive to industry trends and provides a thorough understanding of applied computer vision - exploring both practical and theoretical elements.

The applications of computer vision can be found all around us.

In robotics it is used to make robots identify and handle objects. In cinematography it is used to capture actors' movements, which can then be combined with computer generated graphics to create characters such as Gollum in Lord of the Rings. In medicine, medical imaging is very important for CAT and MRI scans to identify diseases and for research. In surveillance, facial recognition and motion recognition are used to identify and track people.

Tablets and smart phones have computer vision apps, and web applications contain methods to categorise and identify people, objects and places. All these different applications make use of the methods designed for computer vision to make us more comfortable, healthier, safer and entertained.
