BSc (Hons) Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence)


This course is aimed at students who are interested and inspired by the new AI technologies and want to work to become a leader in meeting the challenges posed by AI and big data. This course will support students with a broad range of skills required to work in the field of AI - including machine learning, natural language processing, problem solving and other cognitive techniques, as well as an understanding of the professional and ethical considerations that surround AI.

It is designed to enable you to develop the knowledge and skills that are necessary for, specifically, a career in the industry sectors undertaking the design of intelligent computer systems and emerging smart technologies and, generally, for a broad range of careers in industrial, commercial and scientific computing. The BSc (Hons) Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) degree has been designed to meet the accreditation requirements of BCS – the Institute for IT, for both CITP and partial CEng registration.

Professional accreditation

Accreditation of courses by the BCS provides independent recognition that the course content is relevant to the IT profession. It ensures a level of standardisation across Higher Education institutions so that the courses meet the needs of employers. A key part of the accreditation is the incorporation of professional, ethical, social and legal issues relating to computing. Graduating from a BCS accredited degree allows students to apply for professional membership of the BCS, giving an accelerated route to Chartered status. Employers often look for accredited degrees, and accredited degrees are recognised internationally.

Develop your portfolio

The course puts theory into practice through skills development relevant to the modern world, in particular, the use of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and cognitive computing in an increasing number of industry sectors. It offers skills development as an integral part of the curriculum and as preparation for the world of work. As well as practical skills necessary for the industries using AI, you will develop transferable skills which will make you suitable for general graduate employment in an ever-changing job market.

Research informed teaching

As well as giving you a robust general education in Computer Science, with emphasis on AI design and development, the Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) degree will provide the knowledge and skills necessary for research and development in other technically advanced fields of computing.

Take a work placement

The salaried placement year is an important feature of the sandwich version of the course. The work experience gained from a placement year can give you a distinct advantage on graduating. It requires a successful application process through a company. The NTU Employability team provide support in finding a placement that is right for you and support all stages in the placement application process. Students can transfer between full-time and sandwich versions of the course up to the end of Level 5 (year 2).
