Become a color scientist, within the interdisciplinary context of computer vision and imaging science, photonics, computer science and media technology.

CIMET Master course is designed to address industries’ needs and challenges Photonics & Optical Technologies, Digital Imaging & Computer Vision, Computer Science and Media Technologies are in full growth in all sectors of industrial developments. The color element in these fields has an important place. The needs are increasingly important and research in all these domains is dynamic.

The results obtained by researchers worldwide are very quickly adapted for industry and technological purposes. The Color in Informatics and Media Technology Master is highly relevant to a wide range of sectors, as for example the photonic industry (e.g. lighting), the digital technology industry (e.g. display, printing), and all research and development activities involving computer science. The continued evolution of this research sector requires adapted and extremely specialized courses.

A strong research base

The number of patents and licensing in these domains increases each year. Most companies have big research units in Europe and laboratories collaborating to the CIMET Master build strong research partnerships with several of these companies. These partnerships (applied research projects, measurement services, feasibility studies, concept development etc) have increased significantly since 2003.

Networking in a multicultural environment

CIMET provides a unique mobility scheme enabling students to develop strong cohort links, an awareness of cultural diversity, cross-cultural management skills and the ability to form international networks. In addition to the contribution provided by Third-Country Scholars, Executives from several European Firms will contribute to CIMET as guest speakers at the four universities, reinforcing the cross-cultural aspects of the programme.
