In the Artificial Intelligence programme at Utrecht University  we’ll work on the development of these AI-systems and examine how we can implement the technology for the benefit of society. 


This Master’s offers you an integrative and cutting-edge approach to the field from the viewpoints of Informatics, Logic, Cognitive Psychology, Philosophy, and Linguistics. How do computers learn? How do they represent knowledge? And how do they reason? These are the questions we’ll deal with in the Artificial Intelligence Master’s programme. We’ll test the systems we develop in our very own AI-labs, where we collaborate with a variety of businesses.

Career Prospects

Graduates of this Artificial Intelligence programme at Utrecht University carry out AI research in academic or R&D environments, and they identify how AI techniques can provide intelligent solutions to IT problems in companies and organisations. We want to emphasise that the programme does not focus on particular products or tools from specific vendors; instead, we study underlying techniques and methods that are of a longer lasting value.
