Overview

Reasons to study Intelligent Systems at De Montfort University :

  • Internationally recognised reputation - our internationally recognised Centre of Computational Intelligence (CCI) inputs into the course allowing  you to understand the current research issues related to artificial intelligence 
  • Benefit from our Research Expertise - modules include work-based on research by our Centre for Computational Intelligence (CCI) and focus on the use of fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks, evolutionary computing, mobile robotics and biomedical informatics; providing theoretically sound solutions to real-world decision making and prediction problems 
  • Flexible study options - full-time, part time or distance learning study options available; making the course suitable for recent graduates and professionals in work 
  • Dedicated robotics laboratory - have access to our  Advanced Mobile Robotics and Intelligent Agents Laboratory. The laboratory contains a variety of mobile robots ranging from the Lego Mindstorms and Pioneers to the Wheelbarrow robot for bomb disposal 
  • Employment Prospects - artificial Intelligence is a growing industry worldwide, employment opportunities exist  in areas such as games development, control systems, software engineering, internet businesses, financial services, mobile communications, programming, and software engineering

There are two similar courses within the department providing you with the flexibility to tailor your learning style and subjects specifically to your requirements. You may also be interested in Intelligent Systems and Robotics MSc which has a robotics focus.

Computational intelligence encompasses the techniques and methods used to tackle problems not well solved by traditional approaches to computing. The four areas of fuzzy logic, neural networks, evolutionary computing and knowledge-based systems encompass much of what is considered to be computational (or artificial) intelligence. There are opportunities to use these techniques in many application areas such as robot control and games development depending on your interests.

Graduate Careers

Graduates typically follow careers in robotics programming and research, games development, control systems, software engineering, internet businesses, financial services, mobile communications, programming, software engineering and many more. A number of past graduates are now studying for PhDs.
