Course Description

Why study this course

Our Artificial Intelligence MSc degree is the ideal choice if you want to progress or start your career in the computer science, data or software engineering industry. The course is designed for those who want to play a part in transforming the relationship between people and technology, as well as those who want to be on the forefront of the current digital revolution that is spanning all sectors – from science and engineering to business and entertainment.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer confined to academic research, it’s a growing area of computer science that is beginning to be utilised across all industries that want to gain more from their technology by adding intelligence and learning capabilities to their products.

Recent advances in knowledge representation, pattern recognition, natural language processing and machine learning have made it possible to construct software that solves problems beyond human reach. As a result the industry is experiencing a huge demand for AI specialists. On graduation you’ll have a wider pool of opportunities to choose from, a clear career path and a higher starting salary than average across all professions.

More about this course

Our Artificial Intelligence MSc curriculum is well-balanced as it combines two groups of modules – fundamental modules and specialist modules.

On this course you’ll learn how to develop AI software and apply AI methods through:

  • collecting, aggregating, filtering and transporting data from files, databases and live data sources in real-time
  • modelling, extracting, correlating and analysing data from memory and repositories in automatic, interactive and batch modes of operation
  • designing, developing and testing intelligent programmes, which can perform automated reasoning and learning
  • constructing and controlling autonomous devices, such as robots and drones

A distinctive feature of our Artificial Intelligence MSc is the programme’s focus on various aspects of security, including information, networks and cyber security. You’ll learn how to conduct security analytics in an intelligent way, which is a growing AI field in the detection, identification, classification, prediction and prevention of threats.

You’ll finish your degree with a dissertation, which you’ll have the opportunity to link with the work of one of our two research centres – the Cyber Security Research Centre or the Intelligent Systems Research Centre. On the course you’ll also have the opportunity to work on collaborative projects with our long-standing partners in the fintech industry, including Lloyds Banking Group, Callsign and Open Banking Inc.

Although a master’s degree in artificial intelligence does not lead to a professional qualification on its own, you’ll find that some of the modules provide preparation for professional qualifications in areas such as big data management, data analytics and cyber security.
