Graduation ceremony of our joint Masters Program - Image Processing and Computer Vision (MSc) October 4, 2021
The International Master Program in Image Processing and Computer Vision provides specialized training in a field of increasing importance in our daily lives. It is essential in domains such as medicine, surveillance, industrial control, remote sensing, e-commerce and automation. The program covers a wide range of methods in computer vision, guaranteeing highly-qualified graduates in this field. The program is run by three partner universities – the Pázmány Péter Catholic University (Budapest, Hungary), the University of Bordeaux (France) and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain); students receive the diploma of each university upon successful completion of their studies.
10 of the 19 IPCV graduates were able to attend the ceremony in person, as well as the members of the new 2021 cohort of the IPCV program. Unfortunately, the pandemic-related circumstances made it impossible for some students to come to Budapest to receive their diplomas – however, they joined the event online. Representatives of the two partner universities were also present online, and some members of the IPCV alumnus community also joined the event. In attendance were some of the professors of the Masters program as well. In addition to Hungary, France and Spain, the countries represented included Argentina, Bangladesh, China, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Germany, Nigeria, Pakistan, Romania and Russia.
The ceremony was preceded by the diploma presentation of three new graduates. Their topics were the following:
- Explanation of Decisions of CNNs Application to COVID-19 images presented by Ayyar Meghna Parameswaran (India)
- Enhancing 360° VR Experiences with Machine Learning-based Multisensorial Effects presented by Szabó Péter József (Hungary)
- Multi-frames Super Resolution presented by Alekseenko Iuliia (Russia)
The speech of Dr Kristóf Iván, Dean of Pázmány ITK was followed by the Heads of the IPCV program from each partner university and by a farewell of a new graduate addressed to his fellows and teachers.
Towards the end of the event, Head of IPCV Alumni Group greeted the fresh graduates, who will now join the ever-growing community of IPCV alumni, consisting of amazing individuals making a difference in several countries around the world. The IPCV Alumni Group is there to help new graduates to connect them with career support, events and networking opportunities.
Graduation is the culmination of a great deal of work and the recognition of individual commitment and effort. But it is also about others – a supportive family, friends and peers who helped during the studies, a favourite teacher who gave inspiration or encouragement in the right time. The graduation of this cohort is even more meaningful in this respect, as we all have been going through a global pandemic that has affected many people's lives. 10 IPCV students received a diploma with honors. Taken into account their MSc years have been more challenging than ever, we are extremely proud of them.
The graduation ceremony was concluded by a Dinner Cruise on the beautiful river Danube in honor of the new graduates and freshmen of the IPCV program, hosted by Pázmány University.
Congratulations to our graduates, and good luck on your future! Keep adding to the goodness and beauty in the world. Keep developing those unique dreams and talents that make you who you are. This is not a farewell, but a commencement of your new life. Each of you will be remembered, each of you has left a mark with us. Thank you for having chosen the IPCV Joint Masters Program, and thank you for the years we have spent with you.
