Our Artificial Intelligence MSc will prepare you for work developing intelligent software systems. You can choose to study a wide-range of topics such as: Agents & Multi-Agent Systems, Pattern Recognition, Neural Networks and Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence Planning, Nature-Inspired Learning Algorithms, Philosophy & Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, and Data Mining. There is also the opportunity to explore a range of optional modules allowing you the freedom to develop your study pathway to reflect your interests.
We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the course. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study.
Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15-credit module. These hours cover every aspect of the module, including independent study.
The primary method of assessment for this course is a combination of written examinations, coursework, in-class tests, individual projects and oral presentations. The individual project will be assessed through a dissertation.
