MSc Artificial Intelligence

USW’s new MSc Artificial Intelligence is a conversion course aimed at graduates who would like to broaden their existing knowledge and open up a new career path.

Artificial intelligence aims to automate the completion of highly complex tasks and increase productivity, as well as use data to get a competitive edge or increase market share.

As a result, artificial intelligence has broad application in a variety of industries from mobile communications and computer security to healthcare, manufacturing, marketing and financial services and is a key growth area for jobs.

The AI masters will develop technical training in the fundamentals of artificial intelligence including machine learning techniques; autonomous systems; deep learning and computational intelligence, as well as core skills in data analysis, project management and research.


Assessment is primarily by coursework (94%), varying from a research-style paper or essay to practical assignments.

You will also work on a significant research project of your own choice, where strong independent thinking, critical analysis and project management skills will be important.


Graduates with an MSc Artificial Intelligence will be able to apply for jobs in artificial intelligence, competitive intelligence, business intelligence, threat intelligence, cyber intelligence, computational intelligence, customer intelligence and marketing intelligence.

Example job titles include machine learning engineer, artificial intelligence engineer and business intelligence data engineer.

Many of our computing graduates commence a computing research degree here at the University, and there are PhD research opportunities in artificial intelligence within the school and beyond.
