Programme Overview

The Master's programme in Artificial Intelligence takes a multidisciplinary approach to understanding and modeling brain systems. Students in this programme can draw on courses from mathematics, computer science, psychology and neuroscience.

This programme also works closely with the world-renowned Donder's Institute and the Behavioural Science Institute. Students also have access to Radboud's state-of-the-art facilities for brain imaging: EEG, fMRI and MEG.

Students from the Artificial Intelligence programme at Radboud University   can choose one of two specialisations: Cognitive Computing or Intelligent Technology.

What will you learn?

  • Learn about the theoretical backgrounds as well as the societal, ethical and legal impacts of AI.

  • Engage with contemporary methods in Machine Learning from a practical or statistical standpoint.

  • Understand how to apply AI in a broad range of fields, from medicine and health care, to human-robot interactions

Career Prospects

Many graduates are offered jobs before they ever leave Radboud, while some continue in their academic career as a PhD researcher. Graduates from this programme could find work in a wide variety of fields:

  • Data Scientist

  • Developer

  • R&D programme manager

  • Machine learning expert

  • Entrepreneur

  • Technology designer

  • Clinical Specialist

  • Policy advisor

Programme Structure


Cognitive Computing

  • How does it actually work to perceive, to act, to decide and to remember? Learn how to create artificial information systems that mimic biological systems as well as how to use theoretical insights from AI to better understand cognitive processing in humans

Intelligent Technology

  • How can an understanding of language and communication be used to improve the interactions between intelligent technology? Developing intelligent machines and new ways for humans and machines to interact, as well as understanding cognition through human behavior.
