The Visual Informatics program prepares students to work with visual information and models of spatial scenes. Elective studies include or touches on areas such as computer graphics, image processing, visualization, computer vision, virtual and augmented reality, image processing, pattern recognition, object modeling, animation, graphic design, and machine learning.
The candidate chooses one of the specializations Image analysis and processing, graphic design, computer graphics and visualization or computer game development.
The graduate will find employment in various areas, such as the development of graphics applications, simulators, computer games, applications for multimedia processing and analysis, data visualization, virtual and augmented reality or the creation of quality graphic design. The graduate can work, for example, as an analyst, graphic designer, application programmer, leader of a research or development team. The acquired theoretical knowledge and practical skills will enable him to thoroughly understand the solved problems and enable him to effectively use a wide range of modern technologies in practice - from common mobile devices to dedicated systems with high computing power.

FI MU graduates score with a start-up for babysitting
Already during their studies, Petr Šigut and David Hrachový founded the Hlídačky.cz server, which is used by thousands of parents and babysitters.
In the study catalog you will find lists of compulsory and optional subjects and a recommended course of study.
Internship is not a mandatory part of the study program. However, within the specialization of computer game development, a practical internship at a commercial company is expected.
Specializations are study plans that set out the conditions for graduation, such as compulsory subjects.
The specialization provides a comprehensive view of image information acquisition and processing, from simple image editing using point transformations or linear filters to sophisticated tools such as mathematical morphology or deformable models. Graduates will find employment especially in the development and deployment of image processing systems in various fields, such as for use in medicine, biology, meteorological and geographical data processing, biometric applications, etc.
The specialization offers education in the field of graphic design and related disciplines, in cooperation with the Studio of Graphic Design and Multimedia (AGD + M). The studio focuses mainly on digital media, which nowadays replace the print media to a greater extent. At the level of mastering quality graphic design, this is the same problem, however, digital media open up new possibilities in communication with the consumer. For these media, concurrent computer science education of students is necessary, and specialization is developed within the study. Students cover topics such as game creation and interactive information graphics, application creation for interactive media, generative design programming, animation, video, 3D digital modeling and 3D printing, e-publishing, web design or font creation.
The Graphic Design study plan has a limited capacity of 40 students.

There are not many people in the republic who create fonts for newspapers, magazines or other purposes and still make a living from them. FI graduate David Březina is one of them.
The specialization offers the study of general knowledge of informatics and the latest knowledge from the dynamically developing field of computer graphics and its development on the basis of interdisciplinary work and use in other scientific fields. Students will get acquainted with the principles of construction of graphic architectures, mathematical methods used to solve complex imaging problems. The field provides deeper knowledge focused on the design and implementation of software applications using advanced computer graphics technologies.
The specialization gives students a comprehensive insight into the way of creating graphic aspects of contemporary multimedia entertainment software, students get acquainted with modern modeling, rendering or animation techniques, not only in the context of classical 2D and 3D rendering, but also in the context of virtual or augmented reality.
