MSc Artificial Intelligence

Study our real-world focused MSc Artificial Intelligence course and gain all the skills and experience you need to start your career in this intellectually-stimulating and fast-growing profession.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the way we live, work and learn. From manufacturing robots to self-driving cars, and smart assistants to systems that discover and make use of patterns in data for social or business good, AI has become part of our everyday lives.

If you're looking for an intellectually-challenging career where you can put your problem-solving skills to use to help companies, organisations and society as a whole to do things better, then a career in AI could be perfect for you.

There's a huge global shortage of AI experts and this predicted to increase, so AI professionals can expect to be very much sought after, able to command high salaries and choose between the many job prospects open to them.
