About this program

Artificial Intelligence MSc

Our new MSc is the only course of its kind in the UK. It covers the three most important aspects of artificial intelligence (AI) – vision, speech and 5G – each backed up by one of our world-leading research groups. Our Program also encompasses the business, regulation and ethics aspects of modern AI.

The growth of AI is rapidly changing the way we live, work and learn. However, there’s a real shortage of AI talent worldwide, both to serve the industry and to drive future research.

Studying on this course will enable you to capitalise on the wide spectrum of career opportunities provided by AI, preparing you to work in industry, take an entrepreneurial route or pursue further research.
