Why choose this programme?
  • Because you want to make increasingly intelligent systems that 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 that covers the 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 VGIS programme 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.

Career Opportunities  

The Master’s programme in Vision, Graphics and Interactive Systems at Aalborg University provides you with extensive experience in analysing, designing, implementing and testing complex high-technology software solutions, especially focused on vision, graphics and interfaces. These solutions typically involve either interfaces to specialised hardware, interfaces to users, execution on mobile platforms or any combination of these domains.

You are thus highly skilled in complex systems engineering, i.e., “making complicated stuff work”. This competence makes you very valuable to employers and over the years, graduates have found it very easy to find an attractive and stimulating occupation in industry or academia, nationally and internationally. The following companies have employed graduates from the programme:
  • Lyngsoe Systems
  • Terma
  • JLI
  • IO Interactive
  • Grundfos
  • Image House
