Anglia Ruskin works with tech companies to develop undergraduate and master’s courses
Anglia Ruskin University has launched four new courses, with the help of local companies, to help the UK close the Artificial Intelligence skills gap and address one of the Grand Challenges set out in the Government’s Industrial Strategy.
From this September, students will be able to enrol on three Master’s courses (MSc Artificial Intelligence and Big Data, MSc Artificial Intelligence with Cyber Security, MSc Intelligent Systems and Machine Learning) as well as an undergraduate BSc (Hons) in Artificial Intelligence.
All courses will be run on Anglia Ruskin’s Cambridge campus and will benefit from the state-of-the-art facilities available at Compass House, the home of Anglia Ruskin’s School of Computing and Information Science.
Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is a programmed system or piece of software that can “think” for itself and create solutions by working out missing information.
AI can be found in products ranging from telephones to tumble dryers and graduates from AI courses could go on to work in a variety of sectors in research and development, programming, analyst, engineering and technician roles.
