Artificial Intelligence BEng (Hons)

  • Summary

    Increased use of Artificial Intelligence (Al) can bring major social and economic benefits by automating tasks currently done by humans. AI computers can analyse and learn from information at higher accuracy and speed than humans can. It offers massive gains in efficiency and performance to most or all industry sectors, for example in Health, Financial Technology, Advanced Manufacturing, Social Media. Al is software that can be integrated into existing processes, improving them, scaling them, and reducing their costs, by making or suggesting more accurate decisions through better use of information. Artificial Intelligence has also been a main focus of Computer Science research at Ulster University for over 25 years, and we are uniquely positioned to deliver this degree course.


    This course will develop your employability skills by:

    • providing you with a broadly-based education in AI and its related technologies which will equip you with the knowledge and skills to select and apply appropriate AI techniques to a particular domain.
    • providing a systematic study of the theory and principles of AI, which includes fundamental theoretical computer science, mathematics, programming and software engineering.
    • developing your competence in the use of programming languages for the production of AI and Machine Learning software components.
    • developing your ability to analyse problems, reason a solution, and represent the knowledge using suitable AI methods and computational techniques.
    • providing opportunities for the development of practical and team-based skills in applying AI in an industrial context.
