About the course

Our MSc Artificial Intelligence & Applications is a conversion degree designed specifically for graduates without a computing science background.

It's based on the Office for Artificial Intelligence’s National AI Strategy recommendations for AI Masters courses. You'll learn not just core AI-techniques, but how to place them within a business context so as to show their value.

A skills shortage, particularly around machine learning, means graduates are in high demand. This degree is designed to give you the skills to get ahead of the AI-driven transformation in our economy and society. You'll gain transferable skills to prepare you for a professional career in AI and its applications. These are expected to cover all aspects of society both within the tech sector, as well as outside, including:

The University of Strathclyde is a great place to be as it combines a top-notch educational system mixed with amazing uni-life. It is everything and more I can ever think of for a university.

Ever since I finished high school, I always wanted to become an AI expert. In my opinion, “Artificial Intelligence” is one of the best fields of study for all. This will have great impacts on humanity, such as in the field of medicine, engineering, finance, etc. This Master’s degree has given me the knowledge and the hands-on experience I needed to set me on the track to become a successful Data Scientist.

After working for over six years as a Senior Software Engineer in Ghana in the Agri-Tech industry, I began to see many small ways in which machine learning is able to infer business intelligence, from huge amounts of data being ingested on a daily basis. This intrigue along with my desire to empower myself with relevant skills for the latest technologies in my space led me to study the MSc Artificial Intelligence and Applications.

The University of Strathclyde had undoubtedly one of the most attractive packages for postgraduate study in the UK. The new course in Artificial Intelligence and Applications looked to be the best fit in terms of what would equip me with the right knowledge and skills for my career shift. I also loved the idea of studying right in the middle of the beautiful city of Glasgow.

The MSc Artificial Intelligence and Applications was very well structured to empower students on both the theoretical and practical aspects of applying artificial intelligence in industry. The professors aided in lab sessions where we would use AI to solve real world challenges. I loved the campus experience, especially having access to the ultra-modern gym facility. There were many resources for research work and career guidance which I took advantage of and this helped greatly.

I was able to gain knowledge in many areas of Artificial Intelligence such as Deep Learning and Neural Networks, and AI for autonomous systems - including programming in Python and R which are used widely in the field of Machine Learning. Working on my dissertation project with the guidance of my supervisor provided the opportunity of developing an end-to-end solution practically through research and development over time which was a great steppingstone for the professional environment I find myself in now.

Shortly after graduating I had the opportunity of working with a robotics company in the UK called Wootzano which uses state of the art technologies for robotic fruit and vegetable packing as their Machine Learning Engineer. Many of the skills I learnt at Strathclyde were directly applicable on the job and I was able to integrate very quickly within the team.
