About Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Visual Computing at École Polytechnique

The École Polytechnique Master of Science and Technology in Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Visual Computing is a two-year program, entirely taught in English and designed for highly qualified and internationally oriented students. It provides you with an in-depth understanding of the most recent techniques in artificial intelligence and teaches you to implement them efficiently. 

This research-oriented program is at the heart of digital science and its latest, most promising applications. Its curriculum comprises two branches, namely Artificial Intelligence and Visual Computing. The first branch takes into account statistical learning and its applications in data science, while the second looks at 3D computer graphics, virtual and augmented reality, multimodal interaction, computer vision, robotics, and 3D manufacturing.

The Program offers high-level scientific classes taught by faculty from École Polytechnique and partner companies.

The Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Visual Computing Master’s provides students with the keys to become the next creators of innovative applications, using artificial intelligence and visual computing.  

Year 1 includes classes on Imaging Techniques, Computer Graphics, Machine Learning, Image Analysis, and Statistics, to name a few. The year then ends with a four- to five-month internship.

Year 2 involves more in-depth classes in machine learning (deep learning and reinforcement learning). Classes include High-dimensional Data Analysis, Computer Vision, Advanced 3D Graphics, Natural Language and Speech Processing, and Socio-emotional Embodied Conversational Agents.
You will also become familiar with ethical issues and law, and novel applications of Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Visual Computing, through weekly seminars with keynote talks from academic and industrial partners.

Transverse project: You will spend half a day per week working on a transverse project, aiming to find solutions to a significant issue raised by either an industrial partner or a researcher in a domain covered by the program.

The Master’s ends with a final internship. For five to six months, you will work on a project, either at a company R&D center or a research lab.  The Master’s Program has developed strong collaborations with world-class partners in industry, all of which are glad to welcome our students for their internships.
