Artificial Intelligence is a rapidly growing and exciting field in technology, where computers and other devices are designed and developed to display intelligent characteristics, that can and will transform the world around us.
Being able to handle large amounts of data efficiently and quickly has become an important part of computing. Business need to understand trends in data that will allow them to make important and informed decisions, which is where computer scientists come in.
Our Computer Science Degree (Artificial Intelligence) focuses on AI along with a broad base in technology and software development.
In the first two years, you’ll find an emphasis on software development, professional programming, the modelling and design of systems and data, the principles of networking and user experience.
These give you the core skills to specialize in AI, where you can study the analysis, design and construction of knowledge-based and expert systems, artificial life and robotics, and systems based around the use of neural networks.
“Subject to Validation”
Computer Science is both an academic and a practical subject, you will be taught in different ways such as lectures, smaller group tutorials, supervised practicals (labs) and self-study including experiential learning. Assessment is by a mix of in-class tests, exams, and coursework.
