Course description

One of the challenges in computing is to make computers demonstrate intelligent behaviour, so that they can solve new problems or cope with the unknown. Current achievements include image and voice recognition, and NASA's Mars Rovers. By combining the study of artificial intelligence and traditional computing techniques with an understanding from psychology of how humans learn, these degree programmes prepare you for a career applying computing in challenging applications.

Artificial intelligence related topics covered include techniques for representing and reasoning about knowledge, including approaches in machine learning in which general patterns are learned from examples. These programmes give you the opportunity to study these techniques, and their application in areas such as computer vision, games, natural language processing and the semantic web.

This is a four year programme and involves you undertaking a one year work placement in industry between the second and third years of your study at Manchester. Besides the money that you earn during this year, you also gain practical experience that can be invaluable both in your final year project and when competing for graduate jobs. Students with industrial experience not only tend to improve their final degree performance but also tend to develop clearer ideas about their future career path.
