In recent times, there has been a dramatic increase of image and video data in every conceivable field due to the proliferation of digital capture devices and also due to the internet increasingly becoming a multimedia phenomenon. Consequently, the field of Computer Vision and Image Processing has emerged as a promising field of study and research due to its wide spread applications in managing the huge influx of image and video data. Computer Vision started with building machines that can visualize data like human and give inputs for robots; and now has wider objectives to serve applications such as search engines, computational photography, medical imaging, vision for computer graphics and many more. Areas like document and medical image analysis are also developing rapidly. The field of robotics has abundant potential to serve in medical surgery, defense, home security and the community at large. With the advancements in supportive technologies such as digital cameras and video equipments, Computer Vision and Image Processing will become increasingly more capable and affordable as well. The issues and scope for research in this area of specialization are so vast that it is vital to offer a specialized programme in this area. With this as the goal, the University is offering a two year M.Tech programme in Computer Vision and Image Processing. The objective is to create professionals and researchers with the necessary expertise to handle the various real-world problems where image processing techniques might provide robust solutions. The programme includes core courses in Digital Image Processing, Signal Processing, Video Processing, and Computer Vision with the necessary background covered in mathematical courses. The programme has an intensive course work for three semesters with suitable elective courses followed by a dissertation where the students would conduct research in this field of study. The department has a well established research facility, “Amrita – Cognizant Innovation lab” which would help the students to build applications on real-time image and video data. Students have abundant opportunities to pursue internships in major companies and R&D labs like ISRO, NPOL etc. Bright career opportunities are available to students in top companies and research labs.
Admission is through all India entrance - Amrita Graduate Entrance Test for M.Tech. Amrita Graduate Entrance Test (AGET) is the only test for NON-GATE qualified candidates to get an admission to the M.Tech Programs offered by Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham. The test is conducted for 8 different papers. The Duration of the test is for 120 minutes. There will be a total of 60 questions. 30 from engineering based on the qualifying degree, 30 from Mathematics & Aptitude. All questions are of multiple choice. A correct answer will be awarded 3 marks. There is no NEGATIVE marking.
GATE qualified applicants are given direct admission provided they qualify through an interview conducted before the last date of application submission. If not qualified, applicants can choose the paper appropriate to the discipline of their qualifying degree if Amrita Graduate Entrance Test (AGET) exam is available in such a discipline. This is to be eligible for a specialization where the qualifying examination is not relevant.
Bachelor’s degree in Engineering / Technology (4 years after 10+2 or 3 years after B.Sc. / Diploma in Engineering / Technology) - Currently in the final year or already completed.
M. Sc. / MCA or equivalent Master’s degree in any branch of Science / Mathematics / Statistics / Computer Applications or equivalent.
Professional Society Examinations (equivalent to B.E. / B.Tech. / B. Arch.) recognised by MHRD / UPSC / AICTE (e.g., AMIE by Institution of Engineers-India, AMICE by the Institute of Civil Engineers-India).
Applicants should have scored a minimum of 60% in the qualifying degree.

Accreditation is a process by which the quality of a programme is examined and certified normally by an external body of academics. It validates and certifies that academic processes practised within an institute are robust and relevant.
For any programme to be recognized for further studies or a profession it needs to be approved either by a University or/and by a professional council as the case may be.
