Computer Science – Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is one the most exciting and fastest growing areas of information and communications technology (ICT) industry and research. It has the potential to positively transform every aspect of all our lives, from smart cities and autonomous vehicles, through to improved healthcare services and low-carbon economies. The MSc in Computer Science—Artificial Intelligence is aimed at graduates with a primary qualification in computer science or related subject area. It is not a conversion course, but expects students to be already at a very high technical standard with regard to their Computer Science education. This full-time programme is taught by renowned, inter- disciplinary NUI Galway experts in the field. It covers, over two semesters, many complementary areas of AI, including deep learning, natural language processing, optimisation, knowledge representation, and multi-agent systems. Furthermore, students reinforce their newly gained skills in a 30-credit project that is completed during the summer. Here students may have the opportunity to collaborate with a research group or with an industry partner.
