Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming society and is sought after by industry, government and academia. City, University of London's practical MSc trains you in cutting-edge nature-inspired Artificial Intelligence in London.


Who is it for?

This Artificial Intelligence programme from City, University of London is for recent graduates, and those already working, with a strong grounding in mathematics, good imagination and creativity and an appreciation for data. The MSc also requires programming experience, preferably, but not limited to, Java, C++ or Python.

You will need to have a degree in mathematics, engineering or computer science, or a degree in natural sciences, including psychology. You must also be able to envisage and create models and algorithms so you can work with data to find out what it means and says.


What is Artificial Intelligence? AI seeks to simulate intelligence and apply the resulting algorithms to solve real-life problems. AI professionals are in huge demand in fields including health, finance, transport and energy, as well as in neuroscience.

On City's MSc in Artificial Intelligence, you learn advanced AI technology and how to apply it to problems in data classification, prediction and forecasting, optimization, as well as in computational modelling of learning and behaviour.

Our focus is on the most commercially applicable form of AI, known as Deep Learning - developing adaptable artificial neural networks (ANNs) that replicate how the brain works. You also explore the wider issues of ethics, accountability and trust that surround AI and how "Explainable AI" is used to interpret the functioning of complex ANNs.

The course is hands-on, using the new world-class City AI Lab, which provides the latest computers, tools and technologies, and the GPU power needed for Deep Learning. Here, as part of your project work and in preparation for employment or future research, students work on how to apply AI to real-world problems, with active researchers in AI.

Career prospects

Artificial Intelligence experts are highly sought after by businesses, including those working in health, finance, energy and transport, by neuroscience companies and by government. Employment opportunities range from AI developer jobs to roles that benefit from a deep understanding of cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence techniques and tools.

This programme's emphasis on nature-inspired AI and Deep Learning, and links with industrial partners at London's Tech City and the Knowledge Quarter, give students a particular advantage in finding work as specialists in AI companies and institutions.

The course also prepares students for entry into doctoral research.
