Course Summary

This course aims to provide you with knowledge of the various models of computational intelligence, skills in the associated computational techniques, an insight into their theoretical basis and the ability to apply these techniques to a wide variety of problems. Computational Intelligence encompasses the techniques and methods used to tackle problems that traditional approaches to computing struggle to solve. The four areas of fuzzy logic, neural networks, CI optimisation and knowledge-based systems encompass much of what is considered to be computational (or artificial) intelligence. There are opportunities to apply what you learn in areas such as robot control and games development, depending on your interests.

Modules include work based on research by the Centre of Computational Intelligence (CCI). With an established international reputation, its work focuses on the use of fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks, evolutionary computing, mobile robotics and biomedical informatics, providing theoretically sound solutions to real-world decision making and prediction problems. Past students have published papers with their CCI project supervisors and gone on to PhD study.

Graduates typically follow careers within robotics programming and research, games development, control systems, software engineering, internet businesses, financial services, mobile communications, programming, software engineering and many more. Opportunities also exist for further academic study toward a PhD and a career in research.
