The Artificial Intelligence programme at KU Leuven , 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:

  • Information technology
  • Data mining and Big Data
  • Speech and language technology
