Imaging specialization (IMA)

The "Imaging" (IMA) specialization is designed to provide students with in-depth knowledge of the various fields relating to imaging. Courses cover the fundamentals of the discipline through to the most advanced techniques and are taught by Sorbonne Université Professor-Researchers, from LIP6 in particular, engineering schools (Télécom ParisTech, ENSTA), and by researchers from Sorbonne Université associate laboratories (i.e. at la Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital) and from LTCI.
The course meets the high demand of students for whom imaging is a highly attractive area of computer science and of the employment market, with respect to both research laboratories and the industry (image engineering services, multimedia, synthesis image, remote sensing, medical imaging, non-destructive testing, etc.). The In Vivo Imaging program is an original and attractive course involving not only professors of image processing but also researchers in medical imaging, biological imaging, neurosciences, etc., along with doctors and hospital physicians. This specialization incorporates the knowhow of:

  • The Computer Laboratory at Sorbonne Université (LIP6),
  • The Information Processing and Communication Laboratory (LTCI) at Telecom ParisTech.

Career opportunities

This specialization leads to careers in:

  • Image processing research (including medical, biological, physics, remote sensing, video and multimedia applications etc.);
  • University laboratory research;
  • Industrial R&D;
  • Research engineering;
  • End-user companies (quality control, simulation, communication, press, advertising, museology, asset management);
  • Biomedical imaging industry (acquisition system manufacturers);
  • Health engineering services.


The IMA specialization offers three programs:

  • Advanced Image Processing (TAIM),
  • In Vivo Imaging (IMV),
  • Industrial Imaging (joint course with the SDI (Engineering Sciences) course): http://www.master.sdi.upmc.fr/fr/cpa/imi.html).



The unifying aspect of the specialization attracts students from different bachelor courses, thus involving managing heterogeneity while promoting the benefits of complementarity. The M2 program is open not only to students from the M1 IMA, but also to students from other specializations (i.e. IAD – Artificial Intelligence and Decision) on the condition that they meet basic requirements, and to students from Engineering Schools or from equivalent programs either in France or abroad.
Computer Science and Electronics students must have minimum skills in basic mathematics and mathematics and electronics (programming) students must have minimum skills in computer science. Such basic skills are generally acquired on computer science or mathematics and computer science bachelor courses (both on the Sorbonne Université Mathematics and Computer Science Program and on the Statistics and Computer Science program). Students on the Electronics bachelor course must have taken the mathematics tools and programming papers (in C in particular).
