The Artificial Intelligence programme at KU Leuven 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 Artificial Intelligence programme at KU Leuven 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 labour 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
  • Intelligent systems
  • Diagnosis and quality control
  • Fraud detection
  • Biometric systems
