Course content


From driverless cars to voice recognition, Artificial Intelligence (AI), is progressing rapidly and has become part of our everyday lives. With the research and development of new technologies, AI is fast becoming an essential part of how businesses and institutions operate. It is also becoming a vital part of the Industry 4.0 vision with the government estimating that AI could contribute £232bn to the UK economy by 2030.  

On our MSc Artificial Intelligence degree, you will be taught by academics who are experts in the area, many of whom are currently conducting research into the subject as part of our Advanced Computational Science research group. This ensures that our curriculum is based on research-informed content at the leading edge of this fast-paced field. 

This course will build on your existing computing knowledge. We aim to equip you with the fundamental principles of AI so that you’re able to critically evaluate the theories, techniques, tools and systems used in the field and the interdisciplinary applications, allowing you to specialise according to your individual interests. 

You’ll also complete an in-depth masters project with the support of our academic and technical team. By the time you complete our postgraduate degree in AI, you will be well placed to succeed in this high growth industry and ready to tackle the challenges facing businesses and society. 

Career prospects

The advanced skills and understanding you’ll develop on our MSc Artificial Intelligence course can take you into a range of exciting roles in different industries.  

You’ll be ideally placed to apply for specialist jobs such as AI/machine learning software engineer and AI data specialist. There are many links to the field of data science for even broader opportunities. As AI spreads into wider sectors, you’ll find opportunities in areas such as medicine, transport, economics and more. There is also the opportunity to pursue academic research via MPhil or PhD positions.
