Computing (Artificial Intelligence)

BEng Computing (Artificial Intelligence)

4 Years | 150 Credits

This specialist stream of Computing focuses on Computing (Artificial Intelligence), and the development of computational and engineering models of complex cognitive and social behaviours.


What you study

Computing (Artificial Intelligence) is the intelligence exhibited by machines or software. It is also the name of the academic field of study which studies how to create computers and computer software that are capable of intelligent behavior.

AI research is highly technical and specialized, and is deeply divided into subfields that often fail to communicate with each other. Some of the division is due to social and cultural factors: subfields have grown up around particular institutions and the work of individual researchers.


Modules shown are for the current academic year and are subject to change in the future.

Your choice of modules and projects available may, to some extent, be restricted by the schedule of lectures and the availability of staff. It may also vary according to the degree specialism chosen.
