I am Deepak Kumar JAIN from India in Dept. of Multimedia in Information Technology. Having a short professional experience in multimedia technologies helped me in selecting EURECOM for my Masters studies and my decision proved correct when my studies were supported by Orange MAEE scholarship. EURECOM is known for its research capabilities with higher emphasis on practical aspects of education.  Not only EURECOM helps to develop the technical capabilities but also the management and intellectual because of its balanced course curriculum. In all, masters in Multimedia provide a rigorous but innovative platform to learn in this fast evolving field.

Currently I am working as Vision Research Engineer in R&D Department of Valeo Vision Systems in Ireland.
