The course is taught by experienced researchers in artificial intelligence and computer sciences from our Centre for Computational Intelligence (CCI), an internationally recognised research centre that conducts industry relevant research into intelligent systems, and provides high-quality solutions to real-world issues. Due to the nature of robotics, in particular, and intelligent systems, you will meet with researchers with a diverse background ranging from theoretical computer science, to computational mathematics, and electronics. This will give you a versatile background which will allow you to appreciate the complexity of intelligent systems and find 'your way' in a professional career.
Furthermore, the wide selection of optional modules will allow you to realise, while you are studying, you subject preferences and inclinations and follow them. You will be able to choose the study plan and shape your professional background by emphasising the focus of your studies on programming, or on theoretical artificial intelligence, or applied robotics.
At the end of the third year of study, you can choose to graduate with a BSc (Hons), or continue your study with the integrated master’s MComp in Intelligent Systems, which takes an additional year (subject to successful completion of the BSc at 2:2 or above).
Teaching methods include lectures, tutorials and laboratory work. You will also experience collaborative and group-based learning, supervised project work and independent study.
You will normally attend around 12-16 hours of timetabled taught sessions each week, and can expect to undertake at least 24 further hours of directed independent study and assignments as required.
Assessment has been designed to match specific modules and will include timed tests, portfolios of work, laboratory exercises, written and oral examinations, individual and group work, project work, reports and presentations.
