Artificial Intelligence & Advanced Visual Computing Master
This Master curriculum strongly focuses on Artificial Intelligence, including statistical learning and applications to data science. It also covers the complementary field of advanced Visual Computing, including 3D computer graphics, virtual and augmented reality, multimodal interaction, computer vision, robotics, and 3D Fabrication, which either make use, or lead to the development of novel AI methods. This curriculum in Artificial Intelligence and Visual Computing is therefore at the heart of digital sciences and of its most promising, recent applications.
Courses are given by Professors from Ecole Polytechnique and partner institutes and companies. All courses are held in English. Both French and foreign students are welcome.

Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics or Computer Science. Applicants must have followed at least one Statistics course and at least one Algorithmics course.
Candidates with other degrees may be considered, provided that they have a strong background in the mentioned subjects.
A rapidly growing number of companies are looking for researchers and engineers able to create new original computationally competitive AI algorithms. The particular focus put on visual computing in this training will naturally lead students toward applications related to image processing, virtual worlds, conversational agents or drone navigation.
The Artificial Intelligence and Visual Computing Master combines both research and professional experience. After graduating, students can either pursue with a PhD in a French or foreign research lab, or work for companies and startups in a large variety of industries:
Digital applications for smartphones, computers, or personal assistant: Shazam, Snap
Control of autonomous vehicles, drones and robots: Valeo, BMW, Valeo
Virtual reality, image & video editing, design and simulation of 3D virtual worlds: Ubisoft, Dassault systems, Microsoft, Adobe, Sony, Nintendo
E-commerce and online advertisement: Criteo, Teads, Cdiscount, FNAC, eBay, Microsoft, Ubisoft
Financial, banking and insurance sector: BNP Paribas, Société Générale, Barclays, AXA
Standard tuition fees for 2018/19 are set to €15,000 per academic year. However, the tuitions fees you are liable for may depend on your status or the existence of a partnership with your home institution. Moreover, a few grants covering tuition fees will be provided thanks to the industrial partners supporting this graduate degree. Please indicate in your application if you would be interested by such a grant. The excellence of your records will be one of the criteria.
