MSc goes from strength to strength
The School's flourishing MSc programme expands next year with a new programme in AI, as excellent results are announced for last year's programme.
Results for last year’s MSc programme have just been released and congratulations go to everyone for a series of excellent performances! Our picture shows the end-of-the-year event for MSc, and we’re very pleased that a number of students have stayed on in the School to do PhDs.
This year we have 145 MSc students in the School of Electronics and Computer Science, our biggest-ever group. ‘We’ve made a huge investment in establishing our MSc courses and are very pleased to see such a strong intake of students,’ said Dr Darren Bagnall, Director of the MSc programme. ‘This year we have more students, on more courses and from more countries than ever before. We’re pleased to announce that we have greatly increased the number of staff and resources available for the Masters courses to ensure that our students have the best possible time during their short stay with us.’
From October 2008 ECS will be offering a new Masters course in Artificial Intelligence, bringing together in one programme some of the most exciting and innovative work taking place in the School. Artificial Intelligence techniques are increasingly used in support of complex systems and applications from a number of global companies and ECS has internationally recognized expertise in areas such as computer vision, intelligent agents, machine learning, robotics and the Semantic Web. This new course will enable student to gain a thorough grounding in these areas, as well as benefiting from internationally-leading research expertise.
