Integrated Master's Degree in Computer Science with AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to revolutionise work, leisure and travel in ways we can only imagine. It has the potential to solve global health, social and environmental challenges. On this computer science with artificial intelligence course, you’ll learn to design and build the AI programs and systems behind these exciting developments.

As a highly respected hub for AI research, you'll benefit from a range of specialist modules that few UK universities can match. You’ll also be taught by academics actively involved in the latest advances in AI.

Areas you’ll study include machine learning, computer vision, intelligent agents, game theory and robotics.

You’ll graduate with outstanding career prospects in one of today’s most exciting and rapidly evolving fields of computer science.

As part of your master's you will:

  • learn how to design, build and deliver software programs and systems
  • study AI principles and practice at an advanced level
  • be taught by academic staff at the forefront of research
  • do an individual special project in year 3
  • take part in a group design project in year 4, working with an academic or industry customer
