Data mining, pattern recognition and machine learning are just three of the many applications that we take for granted and that are based on artificial intelligence software. Both the MSc and PG Diploma aim to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to make a valuable contribution to this rapidly evolving and widespread field of software development.
Full-time students take 4 courses each semester and must normally take courses marked with **
Semester 1 3D Modelling and Animation Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Agents Data Mining and Machine Learning ** Rigorous Methods for Software Engineering Robotics and Automation Software Engineering Foundations
Semester 2 Advanced Interactive Design Biologically Inspired Computation** Computer Games Programming ** Research Methods and Project Planning** Virtual Environments
After semester 2, students continue full-time on the MSc project
Admission requires a 1st or 2nd class honours degree or its equivalent in Computer Science or IT. Candidates holding less than a good honours degree or its equivalent but with compensating qualifications or experience may be admitted to the Postgraduate Diploma programme. Transfer to the MSc will be possible later on if exam and course work are at MSc level. Non-native English speakers must have an English level of IELTS 6.0 or its equivalent.
