WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Acquire a solid scientific background in human-computer interaction, computer graphics and design

Asset n°2

Gain experience with a research internship

Asset n°3

Prepare for a career in academia or an industry R&D department

The two-year Interaction, Graphics & Design Master’s program aims to provide comprehensive coverage of human-computer interaction, computer graphics and design. The program trains students to design and create advanced interactive computing systems. It also provides them with fundamental knowledge and practical methods, as well as presenting advanced techniques.

Students can choose from a wide range of courses devoted to topics such as human-computer interaction, design, computer graphics, augmented/virtual reality, and multimodal interaction. Students may study the field in breadth or focus on a specific subdomain of study with classes focused on user-centered design, user evaluation, innovation design, interactive software development, web and mobile computing, augmented and virtual reality, information visualization, image synthesis, computational geometry, GPU programming, computer animation, 3D modeling, on-line and video games, multimedia networking, gestural interaction, multimodal interfaces, tangible fabrication, conversational agents and affective robotics.

Conducted in partnership with Université Paris-Saclay, the program is multidisciplinary and involves collaborations with experts in various fields.

Objectives

This Master’s program enables students to:

  • Understand the fundamental aspects of interaction, design, and computer graphics based on multidisciplinary approach
  • Acquire technical skills and concrete applied methodologies for making user interfaces and interactive 3D applications more creative and adapted to user needs
  • Solve theoretical and applied problems with significant time devoted to projects, workshops, sprints and practical classes
  • Become familiar with research and scientific work through a scientific project in the first year and an internship in the second year
  • Prepare for a career in academia or industrial R&D.

On graduating, students will be equipped to pursue an industry or research career:

  • Position in research or industry, especially in research and development labs
  • PhD studies benefiting from the vast scientific ecosystem at the Institut Polytechnique de Paris and world-renowned research labs in France (INRIA, CNRS, CEA)

Application fields include interaction design, computer-aided design, augmented and virtual reality, video games, special effects, visualization, and mobile and web computing.

Course details will be available when admission opens.
