The master course aims to provide qualifications for entry into the 
professions in the area of robotics, computer vision, image processing 
and medical imaging either in public laboratory or private research 
company. Over 4 semesters (120 ECTS), the students attend three 
universities, where *all the classes will be taught in English*. An 
introduction to Scottish, Spanish and French culture and language will 
be proposed to the students. The student population will be between 30 
and 40 per year. The average ratio professor/student relation is 
approximately 1:5.

VIBOT students are required to cover the areas of studies below, *over 
the total of 120 ECTS*:

    * Basis of signal and image processing: software, hardware;
    * Tools and methods of computer vision: compression, segmentation,
      realtime, pattern recognition, 3D vision, etc.;
    * Robotics: fundamentals, control and programming for robot autonomy
      and intelligence;
    * Medical imaging: biologic basis, infrared imagery, X-Ray and
      ultrasound imagery;
    * Research training period or a vocational training period.

Each university articulates its offer of courses on the basis of its own 
approach, in such a way that the students can benefit from different 
cultural and scholarly flavours.

The first three semesters will successively occur in:

    * FRANCE: *University of Burgundy *(antenna of Le Creusot) [UB]
    * SPAIN: *University of Girona* [UdG] (Catalonia)
    * UNITED KINGDOM: *Heriot-Watt University* [HW] (Scotland)

Classes will be taught by eminent researchers from the three 
laboratories: SIG/OSL at Heriot- Watt, VICOROB at Girona, Le2i at Le 
Creusot. The last semester which can be a practical experience to 
research will take place in one of the laboratories of the university 
members of the consortium for the non-european students and in 
laboratories of a third-country university partner for the european 
students. An another choice for the four semester is to do a vocational 
training period in an european company for the non-european students and 
in a company in the country of the third-country university partner for 
the european students.

The European Master is awarded by Burgundy, HW and Girona universities, 
and countersigned by the Consortium's director. *A joint degree* and a 
*diploma supplement* are delivered to the students.
