This MSc is taught at the UK’s longest established centre for artificial intelligence, which remains one of the best in the world.
Our research draws on neuroscience, cognitive science, linguistics, computer science, mathematics, statistics and psychology to span knowledge representation and reasoning, the study of brain processes and artificial learning systems, computer vision, mobile and assembly robotics, music perception and visualisation.
We aim to give you practical knowledge in the design and construction of intelligent systems so you can apply your skills in a variety of career settings.
You follow two taught semesters of lectures, tutorials, project work and written assignments, after which you will learn research methods before individual supervision for your project and dissertation.
Informatics Research Review Informatics Research Proposal Introduction to Java Programming (for students who do not already meet the programming requirements for the taught masters) Dissertation
You will choose a 'specialist area' within the programme, which will determine the choice of your optional courses:
Intelligent Robotics Agents, Knowledge and Data Machine Learning Natural Language Processing
You can choose from a variety of optional courses including:
Advanced Vision Algorithmic Game Theory and Its Applications Computer Animation and Visualisation Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition Natural Language Understanding Robotics: Science and Systems Human-Computer Interaction Software Architecture, Process and Management Text Technologies for Data Science Computational Cognitive Neuroscience
Our students are well prepared for both employment and academic research. The emphasis is on practical techniques for the design and construction of intelligent systems, preparing graduates to work in a variety of specialisms, from fraud detection software to spacecraft control.
The minimum entry requirement is a UK 2:1 degree, or its international equivalent, in informatics, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science, electrical engineering, linguistics, mathematics, philosophy, physics or psychology, plus experience in computer programming. All applicants must have a sufficient mathematical and informatics background for their chosen area of study.
