Comments about MEng Artificial Intelligence (4 Years) - At the institution - Manchester - Greater Manchester

  • Objectives
    One of the challenges in computing is to make computers demonstrate intelligent behaviour, so that they can solve new problems or cope with the unknown. Current achievements include image and voice recognition, and NASA's Mars Rovers. By combining the study of artificial intelligence and traditional computing techniques with an understanding from psychology of how humans learn, these degree programmes prepare you for a career applying computing in challenging applications. Artificial intelligence related topics covered include techniques for representing and reasoning about knowledge, including approaches in machine learning in which general patterns are learned from examples. These programmes give you the opportunity to study these techniques, and their application in areas such as computer vision, games, natural language processing and the semantic web. This four-year full-time MEng programme enhances the contents of the equivalent three-year BSc programme by enabling you to study specialised topics to a greater depth and broaden your skills and experience with a period in industry, enterprise related courses, and industrially-focused project work. The enhancements enable you to develop an in depth specialist knowledge across a range of computing subjects, including some covered by the MSc in Advanced Computer Science. They also allow you to understand the business skills needed to develop and manage a successful business exploiting computing technology.
  • Entry requirements
    Selected entry requirements English language: IELTS 6 (minimum of 5 in any component), TOEFL 550 (TWE of 5), Internet Based TOEFL 79 (minimum of 19/30 in each component), Computer Based TOEFL 213 (TWE of 5) A level: Grades AAA. This should include a mimimum of grade A in Mathematics and other subjects studied should have a scientific bias. General studies and other subjects which do not include a significant written element are welcomed but are not normally included as part of the standard offer. Unit grade information: The University of Manchester welcomes the provision of unit grade information which, like all other available information, will inform the consideration of applications. Unit grades will not normally form part of offer conditions, except for Mathematics programmes. GCSE: Six academic subjects at grades A or B including Mathematics, English Language and dual science. Key Skills qualification: The University warmly welcomes applications from students studying the Key Skills qualification. However, as the opportunities to take these modules are not open to all applicants, currently this is not an essential requirement of the University. International baccalaureate: 37 points overall including 6 in Mathematics and 5 in two further subjects with a scientific bias at Higher level. Additional entry requirements Additional entry requirements exist for this course. You may view these by selecting from the list below.

    Scholarships and bursaries
    All new home (UK) students who are enrolled on this undergraduate degree programme and who achieve three A grades at A-level (normally excluding General Studies) in the same year, or the equivalent in a national qualification, will be awarded a scholarship.

    For more information about equivalent qualifications, and additional scholarships and bursaries which may be available to you, please visit the scholarship information pages.

    The School is also offering 10 International Kilburn Scholarships of £1000 per annum for the duration of the programme.

    The Kilburn Scholarships are in memory of Tom Kilburn, who in 1948 designed and built the world's first stored program computer here in Manchester. They are awarded on academic merit to students who we believe have the skills and aptitude to help the help the School build on Kilburn's legacy of achievement and innovation.

    Accrediting organisations
    British Computer Society (BCS) and Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

    Career opportunities
    Increasingly, employers are seeking graduates with high-level computing skills, and the ability to apply them in innovative ways to solve the problems facing their organisations. Opportunities exist in fields as diverse as finance, films and games, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, consumer products, and public services - virtually all areas of business and society.

    Employers, from large multinational firms such as EA Games, IBM and Microsoft to small local organisations, actively target our students, recognising that Manchester Computer Science graduates are equipped with the skills that enable them to excel in a whole host of positions, including many that are not traditionally associated with computing graduates.

    Course fees: Tuition fees for Home/EU students commencing their studies in 2009 will be approximately £3250 per year. These fees will be subject to change in the light of government announcements to all universities.
