Program description

Artificial Intelligence with a Year in Industry - BSc (Hons)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly successful in solving complex and key problems from self-driving cars and medicine to information retrieval and games. Recent advances exploit machine learning techniques where AI systems extract patterns from vast amounts of examples (big data) using large-scale computing infrastructure, such as the cloud. On the BSc Artificial Intelligence with a Year in Industry you will specialise in this rapidly evolving area of computer science and put your skills into practice in the workplace.

On this degree you learn a combination of solid knowledge of computing technologies and programming skills with an in-depth understanding of the principles and practice of building AI systems. The programme is taught by experts in the area of AI and applied machine learning.

In the first year of the programme your learning is centred on computer sciencefundamentals and you share modules with students on our successful BSc ComputerScience programme. In the second year you study core AI concepts and techniques. In your final year, you select a range of modules allowing you to focus on specific AI techniques and applications of your choice such as neural network, data mining, eHealth and semantic web.

Our programmes are taught by leading researchers who are experts in their fields. The School of Computing at Kent is home to several authors of leading computingtextbooks. Kent was awarded gold, the highest rating, in the UK Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework.
