Explore the latest developments in AI and learn how to apply them to solve engineering challenges across industries worldwide.

Artificial intelligence is one of the fastest growing technologies, with many sectors having to adapt quickly. As the integration of artificial intelligence into industries becomes more widespread, so do new opportunities. Engineers with expertise in applying AI methods to improve business productivity, efficiency, and sustainability are in high demand.

We've designed our new master's to meet this demand and help move engineering practice as we know it into the future. You'll study a range of AI-related topics, combining engineering and design with data science, machine learning, and applied artificial intelligence. We teach the professional and transferrable skills to lead on applying new technologies in this rapidly shifting arena. You’ll also explore how AI can help transform society through technological advancements, while considering its wider impact in areas such as ethics.

Working with real-life case studies, you'll learn how to use data and advanced algorithms to solve the complex challenges found in industry. This, along with the creative, problem-solving, and technical skills valued by employers will help prepare you to innovate solutions at a professional level.

Key benefits - Wide-ranging topics: explore artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, big data, the Internet of Things, digital twins, automation, process control, cyber security, and new digital ways of working

  • Research skills: work with academics in our research centres to complete an individual research project, where you’ll apply your knowledge to a challenge or development opportunity
