MSc Artificial Intelligence

In the UK, we have seen a huge expansion in artificial intelligence (AI) during the last decade, showcasing that the UK economy is aiming to use AI to position itself at the forefront of the revolution. Data shows that the AI sector is worth over £15.6bn and employs more than 35,000 people.* This means that AI has rapidly become a medium-sized sector in the UK economy and has the potential to participate in other sectors’ growth.

Demand for AI talent in AI techniques, such as machine learning, is increasing rapidly. Action is needed now to ensure the skills pipeline can meet the needs of industry now and in the future. This course will aim to develop your knowledge and understanding to an advanced level across a range of areas including:

  • autonomous systems
  • knowledge representation and reasoning
  • data mining
  • machine learning
  • robotics

Our aim is to equip you with an understanding of the fundamental approaches to implementing intelligent behaviour in machines. This should then enable you to match applications with appropriate AI techniques for their solution and be able to construct and configure solutions using a range of AI technologies.

Entry Requirements

Entry requirements for this course are normally:

  • A BSc or BEng Honours degree (2:2 or above) in Computing or Engineering or scientific related subject or an equivalent professional qualification
  • Applicants are expected to be familiar with and have some aptitude for Discrete Mathematics and Predicate Calculus
  • Other qualifications and/or experience that demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills at an Honours degree level - the qualification and experience should be in the area of Computer Science or Mathematics/Engineering

If your first language is not English, you will need to meet the minimum requirements of an English Language qualification. The minimum for IELTS is 6.5 overall with 6.0 in Writing and no element lower than 5.5, or equivalent will be considered acceptable.

Career Prospects

We would expect to see graduates progress to careers as Robotics Programmer, Machine Learning Engineer, Data Mining Analyst or Software Engineer for example. You could also go on to further study and the University has many options available for postgraduate research which may interest you.
