Artificial intelligence degrees abroad

The study of artificial intelligence (AI) is closely linked to computer science, and is concerned with building artificial systems that behave intelligently. AI is becoming common in everyday technology, and its application could help to solve many real-world problems we face now, and may face in the future.

AI can cover the understanding of human intelligence through the use of computer models, and the techniques and technology required to build the systems capable of intelligent decisions. This means artificial intelligence programs can cover elements of psychology, computing and engineering.

AI is a popular subject for international students to study overseas, and it means you can choose from a huge range of programs. It also means you might be able to take advantage of better facilities and technology than you be able to get if you studied at home.

Artificial intelligence program structure

The program content and structure of an AI degree will be different from university to university. It’s quite common for AI to be combined with another subject, for example computer science or robotics. It’s therefore important to look closely at the curriculum and modules that make up each program before you apply.

Most artificial intelligence programs will be made up of mandatory modules and elective modules you can choose yourself. This means you can tailor part of your degree to match your interests and career plans.

At undergraduate level you can study AI over three of four years as a BSc, or a BEng. The main difference will be that the BEng may be accredited by an engineering body, and focus more on the engineering side of the subject.

At graduate level you can study an MSc in artificial intelligence over one or two years, or you can study an MPhil or PhD, which can usually be completed in between two and four years.

Here are some of the common areas and subjects you can expect to cover:

  • Principles of programming and computation
  • Systems and architecture
  • Algorithm design
  • Software engineering
  • Fundamentals of artificial intelligence
  • Mathematical techniques for artificial intelligence
  • Machine learning
  • Artificial neural networks
  • Robotics
