Media entertain, inform, advertise and educate us, they are important components of our lives.

We are witnesses of this media technology revolution. The cooperative doctoral college Digital Media enables targeted research in the promising field of digital media. It covers all important technical aspects of digital media like image acquisition, image and video processing, image synthesis, visualization and display technology in connection with artistic aspects.

The Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen and the Hochschule der Medien have joined forces to form the cooperative Digital Media doctoral college. The college is supported by the state of Baden-Württemberg with eleven full-time scholarships according to the Landesgraduiertenförderungsgesetz (LGFG) for a maximum of three years. The focus of the college is on media production, visualisation and computer graphics/vision.
