About

This Computer Science - Artificial Intelligence programme at National University of Ireland, Galway is aimed at graduates with a primary qualification in Computer Science or related subject area. It is not a conversion course, but expects students to be already at a very high technical standard with regard to their Computer Science education. 

Overview

Artificial Intelligence is one the most exciting and fastest growing areas of the ICT industry and research. It has the potential to positively transform every aspect of all our lives, from Smart Cities and Autonomous Vehicles, through to improved healthcare services and low-carbon economies. Artificial Intelligence has the capacity to provide intelligent solutions that can help us to tackle many today’s greatest societal challenges. 

The full-time MSc in Computer Science - Artificial Intelligence at National University of Ireland, Galway is taught by renowned, interdisciplinary NUI Galway experts in the field. It covers over two semesters many complementary areas of Artificial Intelligence, including Meta-Heuristic Optimisation, Deep Learning, Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems. 

Furthermore, students reinforce their newly gained skills in a 30-credit project that is completed during the summer. Here students may have the opportunity to collaborate with a research group or with an industry partner.

Career Opportunities

AI skills will be required in every industry and could create—according to a recent Forbes report—globally up to 22 million new jobs by 2022. The World Economic Forum estimates that by 2025 machines are expected to perform more current work tasks than humans compared to 71% being performed by humans today, and their recent report concludes that artificial intelligence, robotics and smart automation technology could contribute up to $15 trillion to global GDP by 2030.  

Within the AI space, there is a diversity of jobs requiring various levels of expertise:

  • More foundational jobs include data architects, software engineers and machine and deep learning engineers.
  • Advanced roles include specialist research engineers, including those that specialise in computer vision, language and speech, and AI architects.
