Artificial Intelligence MSc
Expand the horizons of intelligent systems and develop your skills in this rapidly growing sector with our specialist master’s degree.
This programme will give you the skills needed to develop, design and evaluate intelligent systems for a wide range of purposes. You will study topics such as machine learning in practice, deep learning and natural language processing, that will equip you with the practical skills and programming techniques needed to succeed within this complex field.
The University of Liverpool is globally renowned for the strength of its research into artificial intelligence, and our Digital Innovation Facility is opening in 2021, which will be a home for world-leading academic research into a broad spectrum of emerging technologies.
You will have access to an online development environment to practice and refine your new technical skills, which also contains all of the technologies and software you will need for the course – inclusive within your tuition fee.
Upon completion of your studies, you will be prepared to tackle challenges within this high-demand sector. As the use of artificial intelligence (AI) becomes increasingly widespread within all industries, those with knowledge of how these systems operate, and how to optimise them, have become increasingly desirable to employers.
