The programme explores and builds on the fascinating challenge of developing digital systems than can autonomously process, reason and solve complex problems.
For many years, this internationally acclaimed advanced study programme in artificial intelligence has trained students from a variety of backgrounds - including engineering, sciences, economics, management, psychology, and linguistics - in all areas of knowledge-based technology, cognitive science, and their AI applications.
The one-year programme, taught entirely in English, is the result of a collaboration between many internationally prominent research units from seven different faculties of the university. It allows students to focus on engineering and computer science, cognitive science, or speech and language technology.
Modern information technologies and the advent of systems powered by artificial intelligence have already strongly influenced the technology sector in the 21st century. Computers, algorithms, and software have simplified and automated tasks in a wide variety of environments, from power stations to copywriting.
Looking forward it is clear that we can only expect Artificial intelligence to have an even more fundamental impact on the global labor market and with a master's degree in artificial intelligence you, like many of our Alumni before, will be welcomed by companies working in such diverse sectors as:
You will also be qualified to work in the banking sector or provide support for the processing industry, biomedicine and bioinformatics sectors, robotics, traffic systems and many more. Some graduates go on to begin a PhD programme.
