The MSc in Artificial Intelligence aims to develop learners within the Artificial Intelligence (AI) discipline involving skills in technology, programming, Data Science, and information processing to respond to the ever-growing demand across industries for AI specialists. The programme also recognises the interdisciplinary nature of AI, combined with analytics and large data volumes, creating an environment for AI to emerge as key technology for the future. AI is a set of technologies that use machine learning, speech analytics, natural language processing, machine vision and analytics to process the data to make informed decisions or recommendations.
The Master of Science (MSc) in Artificial Intelligence aims are to
Enable learners to develop mastery of current and developing computer technologies especially skills related to the development and use of Artificial Intelligence.
Provide learners with a deep and systematic knowledge of the management of Artificial Intelligence in organisational contexts.
Facilitate the development of applied skills that are directly complementary and relevant to the workplace.
Identify and develop autonomous learning skills for the learners.
Develop in learners a deep and systematic understanding of current issues of research and analysis.
Enable the learners to identify, develop and apply detailed analytical, creative, problem solving and research skills.
Respond ethically and informatively to address any unseen situations that may arise due to the emerging needs of industry.
Provide the learner with a comprehensive platform for career development, innovation and further study.
The minimum entry requirements for the Master of Science (MSc.) in Artificial Intelligence are:
A Level 8 primary cognate degree with a minimum second-class second-division (2.2) classification from a recognised third level institution. Cognate subjects include computer science, technology, networking, information systems, engineering, general science, mathematics, statistics, data analytics or related discipline.
Graduates of any non-cognate discipline and hold a qualification in a conversion-style programme such as the DBS Higher Diploma in Science in Computing.
For applicants whose first language is not English and who have not previously undertaken a degree taught through English, evidence must be provided of proficiency in English language equivalent to B2+ or above on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). This must be evidenced through a recognised English Language test such as IELTS, Cambridge Certificate, PTE or DBS English Assessment. Test certificates should be dated within the last two years to be considered valid.
Applicants who do not have a Level 8 qualification in a cognate area and who have at least 3 years’ work experience may also be considered through the college’s normal RPL procedures. Relevant professional experience may be taken into account and individuals will be assessed on a case-by-case basis through DBS RPL procedures.
