What will I learn?

In the international Bachelor's degree programme in Artificial Intelligence you will study intelligence and develop intelligent and user-friendly products.

This international degree programme focuses on human thinking, artificial thinking (computers, robots) and behaviour in social systems (e.g. group behaviour). You will study the underlying processes in order to predict or simulate behaviour.

Artificial Intelligence draws on knowledge from various disciplines, such as cognitive psychology, linguistics, computing science, logic and philosophy. You will develop skills in these areas in the first year, after which you deepen your knowledge in the sub discipline you prefer, such as machine learning, robotics or cognitive science.

The Groningen science and engineering programmes stand out for their academic excellence. The work pace in the first year is generally high and the courses contents demanding. The first year curriculum concentrates on laying a sound basis for our engineering and natural science disciplines. This allows our students to choose their specialisation tracks already in their second Bachelor's year.

Job prospects

A degree in Artificial Intelligence equips you for a wide range of fields, precisely because your knowledge is so broad and you can approach matters from various perspectives. You can also communicate well with other specialists in the discipline. That makes you highly employable for companies and organizations. You will have broad knowledge and a logical reasoning ability… therefore excellent career prospects. Many graduates find suitable jobs in the business sector in the Netherlands or abroad. Other graduates choose another path, such as setting up their own business. Once they have their Bachelor's degree, most students choose a related Master's programme in Artificial Intelligence or Human-Machine Communication. When you choose Artificial Intelligence you can work at institutions who work with large data files, like hospitals or banks. You can also find a job at research and development departments of multinationals and build autonomous systems. When you go for Human-Machine Communication, you can become a cognitive ergonomist and develop software and devices.
