TU Darmstadt is one of the leading technical universities in Germany. Its Computer Science department consistently ranks among the top 5 in Germany. TU Darmstadt offers a quite unique environment for research in computer vision, with 3 full-time faculty and 4 adjunct faculty in visual computing at large, 4 full-time faculty in robotics and learning, as well as ample interaction across the group boundaries.
We conduct research in several areas of computer vision with an emphasis on statistical methods and machine learning. Recent projects include semantic scene understanding, image motion estimation, deep learning, probabilistic models of low-level vision, as well as people detection and tracking. Our lab members have received several awards for their research.
We regularly teach courses as well as seminars and labs on topics in computer vision and machine learning. Furthermore, we offer term projects and Bachelors and Masters thesis projects in these areas.
Darmstadt is a very livable medium-size city in the Rhein-Main metropolitan area very close to Frankfurt.
