Program Overview

This new unique Programme embraces the new trends in AI by combining established AI techniques like:

  • Unsupervised/Supervised/Reinforcement learning, Deep Learning, Parametric/Nonparametric regression and classification, Evolutionary Computation, Bayesian Networks and Search Algorithms,

with emerging disciplines and technologies such as:

  • Deep Reinforcement Learning, Causality modelling, Bioinspired robotics, Evolutionary robotics, Humanoid robotics, Games-inspired Behavior modelling, Automatic compliance checking, Automatic workflow synthesis, Machine-supported correctness, Probabilistic programming, and Explainable AI.

Emphasis is on applying these techniques to a variety of application areas: text analytics and natural language processing, machine vision, games, smart manufacturing, predictive maintenance, motion and planning, business analytics, finance and many others.

Applicants for must have a first or second class Level 8 honours degree (NFQ or other internationally recognised equivalents) in a relevant or appropriate subject (Computer Science, Computer Engineering programmes, or level 8 Science programmes that have sufficient mathematical and programming skills), or equivalent prior learning that is recognised by the University as meeting this requirement. 

Tuition Fees

These are based on ResidencyCitizenshipCourse requirements.

Review the three groups of criteria to determine your fee status as follows

  1. Residency
    • You must have been living in an EU/EEA member state or Switzerland for at least 3 of the 5 years before starting your course
  2. Citizenship
    • You must be a citizen of an EU/EEA member state or Switzerland or have official refugee status
  3. Course Requirements (all must be met)
    • You must be a first time full-time undergraduate (Exceptions are provided for students who hold a Level 6 or Level 7 qualification and are progressing to a Level 8 course in the same general area of study).
    • You must be undertaking a full-time undergraduate course of at least 2 year’s duration
    • You cannot be undertaking a repeat year of study at the same level unless evidence of exceptional circumstances eg serious illness is provided (in which case this condition may be waived)

This course prepares students for industry careers in data analytics, data science, machine learning and AI. It also aims to give the students the theorethical knowledge to potentially become high profile PhD candidates and who can carry out high profile research in AI.
