Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing how we live, work and socialise. This programme will expose you to all aspects of AI, from its fundamentals to cutting edge techniques, enabling you to work in this dynamic, fast-moving field. The University of Aberdeen has over 30 years' experience, and a world-wide reputation in AI-related research, focusing on areas such as machine learning, data science, natural language generation, and multi-agent systems. Spin-out successes include ARRIA NLG, one of the world's leading natural language generation companies.This programme covers the theoretical underpinning of a wide variety of AI-related techniques including data and text mining, machine learning (deep learning), reasoning, natural language generation, knowledge representation, and distributed AI systems as well as the technology, techniques, tools, software and methodologies used to apply these underlying theories to real-world problems. Students also learn how to engineer and evaluate AI systems.Our close industry links mean you will have opportunities to apply your skills through training and networking events and industrial placements organised through organisations such as the Data Lab, Intel AI Academy, IBM, Intelligent Plant, and Aberdeen City Council.

About this university

International students

For students travelling from outside the UK, the International Student Advisors are available to help guide them on a range of issues. This can range from immigration and visas information, non-academic guidance regarding life in the country as well as help on financial matters. They are based within the Student Advice and Support Office and there are also various pages on the website to help with confidential advice and guidance. Students are represented by the Aberdeen University Students' Association (AUSA). It does not operate a traditional students' union arrangement but does operate The Hub, a dining and social centre created in the former central refectory after a refurbishment. There are some 100 clubs and societies for students to get involved with. The AUSA organises these and among them is the Aberdeen University Debater, the oldest organisation founded in 1848. There is also a student newspaper and numerous other arts and media opportunities. Another notable organisation is the Aberdeen Future Fund, a charity that seeks positive relationships from alumni of the university with current students to help prepare for their future. Sports are organised by the Aberdeen University Sports Union and make use of the various facilities around the sites including the fields to the rear of King's College and the Aberdeen Sports Village.
