Program description

Prepare of the Future of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is considered by many to be the most exciting field in computer science, and perhaps of science in general. Because computational power (CP) is still growing by a factor of 100-1000 per decade, hardware soon will have more raw CP than human brains. AI already learn from experience, and are now outperforming humans in more and more fields. In fact, there is a strong possibility that the best scientists of the future might be AIs.

The current developments in AI may soon lead to massive changes in society. As a master student in this Artificial Intelligence program, you can become part of this revolution.

Admission requirements

The formal requirement for admission is a Bachelor's degree granted by a recognised university in the field of Computer sciences or related disciplines.

Candidates with a Bachelor's degree from a recognized University of Applied Sciences may be admitted with 30-60 additional ECTS to be earned during or before the beginning of the programme, with Bachelor courses according to a study program defined by the scientific director.

Admissions will be treated on a case by case basis.
