Postgraduate - taught prospectus

Machine Intelligence, MSc

Develop your thinking and creativity as we search for the next big step in electronics.

This Master's in Machine Intelligence builds on the concepts of artificial intelligence and machine learning by creating new systems to provide intelligence. By developing new processing methods and data representations, we aim to establish the next big step in computing. The course considers what lies behind current technologies (e.g. AlphaZero, Siri, Alexa) and equips you to think beyond them - to analyse the needs for future technologies and to create and shape them.

This course offers the opportunity to participate in a highly motivated intellectual environment with research-active tutors and like-minded peers while engaging with cutting-edge technologies. You'll be immersed in innovative and pioneering approaches to the field and become highly skilled. You'll also learn to apply your understanding to present and future real-world problems.

How you will learn

For new and returning students in September, our focus is on making our university environments safe and accessible to everyone.  We’ve prepared a 'blended model' of teaching which means combining face-to-face sessions on our campuses with online lectures. All face-to-face sessions are in line with distancing rules. If students are ill or shielding, we’ll provide all lectures and course materials online.

Ready for September

Teaching

In a typical week, learning takes place through a combination of lectures and seminars. You'll be abe to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller group session, Scheduled contact activities may fall between 9am and 9pm, depending on your elective courses and tutorials.

Class sizes

For specialist modules, our classes are usually limited to 20 students in lab sessions and 40 in lectures. This helps to create familiarity between students and staff and ensure a great learning experience. The modules that run across several courses can have larger classes sizes, which are typically broken down into smaller groups.

Independent learning

Outside of timetabled sessions, you'll need to dedicate time to self-study to prepare for coursework, presentations and exams. Our library and online resources with support your further reading and research.

Overall workload

Your overall workload consists of scheduled learning activities which will include online lectures, online and on campus discussions, workshops and practical sessions.

For full-time students, the workload should be roughly equivalent to a full-time job. For part-time students, this will reduce in proportion with the number of modules you are studying.

Assessment

On this course, students are assessed by take-home exams, coursework and practice assessments on campus where required.

Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assessments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
