Course content

In the UK, we have seen a huge expansion in artificial intelligence (AI) during the last decade, showcasing that the country’s economy is aiming to use intelligent technologies to position itself at the forefront of the digital revolution.

Data shows that the AI sector is worth over £15.6bn and employs more than 35,000 people.* This means that AI has rapidly become a medium-sized sector in the UK and has the potential to participate in other sectors' growth.

You could contribute to this growth by enrolling onto our Artificial Intelligence MSc at The University of Huddersfield.
