On completion of this programme, it is expected that students will be able to:

  • Combine knowledge from the wider field of multimedia.
  • Find efficient solutions for engineering problems in the field of multimedia content processing.
  • Conduct independent research to solve specific problems using literature and other information sources.
  • Design and develop complex multimedia solutions.
  • Comprehend contemporary issues in multimedia and responsibly evaluate the effects of proposed solutions in wider socioeconomic, ethical and environmental context.
  • Assess the suitability and use of advanced methods for modelling and analysis of multimedia data, content and users.
  • Apply state of-the-art software development in multimedia systems.
  • Effectively communicate (in writing and orally) with the professional community and with society at large at a high professional level as well as at a non-technical level, depending on the target audience.
  • Work efficiently as an individual or in teams of experts and in multi-disciplinary and multi-lingual settings.


Main objectives of the study programme

To offer the technical and non-technical aspects of the field of multimedia and their mutual synergy, specifically:

  • provide systemic knowledge in the fields of telecommunications and computer science,
  • train  students  to  analyse  problems,  search  relevant  sources  and  critically  assess information obtained,
  • train students to plan and implement multimedia solutions, both in technical and user aspects,
  • provide knowledge in the area of software development,
  • provide knowledge in the areas of analysing,  discovering and visualising data and information,
  • provide knowledge in the area of analysing and processing multimedia content,
  • train students for teamwork with experts in technical and non-technical fields, including the capacity for active communication in written or verbal form.

Providing high-quality knowledge in the field is a directly verifiable objective linked to the student’s learning outcomes. The successful completion of studies serves as a basis for realistically assessing attainment of the objectives and outcomes. Within just a few years of the first generation of master’s degree holders completing their studies, it will also be possible to verify directly the employability of those graduating from this study programme.
