  • The selection of core courses is intended to provide the foundations for AI and an overview of several areas in AI.
  • The electives courses offer students the opportunity to dive deeper into specific areas of AI such as: Robotics and Machine learning or image processing.
  • The program distinguishes itself from the existing course-based option MSc in Computer Science and MASc in Computer Engineering by an increased focus on artificial intelligence and related topics, and a decreased emphasis on other areas of computer science and computer engineering.
