Intelligent Systems

Computational Intelligence (CI) encompasses the techniques and methods used to tackle problems poorly solved by traditional approaches to computing. The 4 areas of fuzzy logic, neural networks, CI optimisation and knowledge-based systems encompass much of what is considered to be computational (or artificial) intelligence. There are opportunities to apply what you learn in areas such as robot control and games development, depending on your interests.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have the equivalent of a British Honours degree (2.2 minimum) in a relevant subject. Most science and engineering-based subjects are acceptable, as long as you have some experience of computer programming. If you have no formal academic qualifications, but do have extensive industry experience, we will consider your application on an individual basis. English language requirements: IELTS 6.0 with no component below 5.5 or equivalent.

Course modules

Modules studied: Computational intelligence research methods; artificial intelligence (AI) programming; mobile robots; fuzzy logic; artificial neural networks; evolutionary computing; applied computational intelligence; data mining; individual project.

Assessment methods

The course consists of an induction unit, 8 modules and an individual project. The summer period is devoted to work on the project for full-time students. If you choose to study via distance learning, you would normally take either 1 module per semester for 4 years, or 2 modules per semester for 2 years, plus a further year for the project. Teaching is normally delivered through lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, discussions and e-learning packages. Assessment is via coursework only and will usually involve a combination of individual and group work, presentations, essays, reports and projects. Distance learning material is delivered primarily through our virtual learning environment. We aim to replicate the on-site experience as fully as possible by using recorded lectures and electronic discussion groups, and by encouraging contact with tutors through a variety of mediums.
