Multimedia Technologies in Biometrics and Information Security Applications

Study directions

The BIOSINF master programme trains specialist engineers with competencies in the following three major domains:

  • Biometric technologies – methods and techniques regarding human biometric data acquisition, storing and processing, using automated methods, with the purpose of identifying people or identity checking (authentication).
  • Information security – multimedia content security (IP protection and audio-video digital information security), personal computer and network security (risk analysis, cyber-attacks detection and prevention, local and network security solutions, databases and specific programming technologies, etc.)
  • Multimedia forensic expertise – identifying information of interest in audio recordings and checking the authenticity of audio-video recordings, forensic image processing, legal issues related to forensic examination systems and procedures.

The three major areas of competence are interdependent, being connected through the concept of security and at the same time open to top scientific research. Acquired knowledge allows graduates to continue their training in a doctoral program.


The BIOSINF programme is a research master that aims to train qualified specialists for academic, science and economic activities in state-of-the-art domains, with long term goals. The general objectives of the programme consist, on the one hand, in acquiring basic knowledge in audio, speech, image and video signals analysis and digital processing and, on the other hand, in gaining in-depth knowledge, both theoretical and practical, in multimedia systems and biometric technologies, with applications in authentication, information security and forensic expertise.
The BIOSINF master programme is coordinated by Speech and Dialogue Research Laboratory – SpeeD from the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology, benefiting from its experience for over 30 years. Also, the BIOSINF programme has a close collaboration with research teams from abroad and from the country, active in the field, both in the academic environment (institutes and universities), as well as in the research and development industrial environment.
