Course Summary

Why choose this course

The University of Surrey’s new MSc in Artifical Intelligence (AI) is the only course of its kind in the UK. It covers the three most important aspects of AI – vision, speech and 5G – each backed up by a world-leading research group at Surrey. The course also encompasses the business, regulation and ethics aspects of modern AI.

AI is rapidly changing the way we live, work and learn. However, there’s currently a real shortage of AI talent worldwide, both to serve the industry and to drive future research.

Studying on Surrey’s MSc will enable you to capitalise on the wide spectrum of career opportunities provided by AI, preparing you to work in industry, take an entrepreneurial route or pursue further research.

What you will study

The one-year full-time MSc will teach you the fundamental AI concepts, the universal machine learning tools essential for any AI job role, as well as specific practical and research skills in all three key AI topics: vision, speech and 5G. You’ll gain experience with cutting-edge tools such as Deep Neural Networks (DNN), Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) and Deep Reinforcement Learning (Deep RL) through regular hands-on exercises and practical labs.

The course consists of technical modules delivered by the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, along with the opportunity to take related modules in business or law and ethics. You will also undertake a year-long project on an AI topic that interests you. You will be supervised throughout the project by an academic specialising in your chosen subject area.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University.

Our graduates have numerous opportunities in AI-driven businesses such as Google, Facebook, Amazon and Samsung, as well as roles in the mobile and gaming industries.

Modules

This course offers an introduction to image processing and computer vision for those interested in the science and technology of machine vision. It provides background and the theory for building artificial systems that manipulate videos and images and alter or analyse their information content. This is done by various computer algorithms that are discussed, implemented and demonstrated.
