What will I learn?

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become increasingly important in addressing complex problems faced in many different aspects of our society, including economics, business, healthcare, medicine, education, and agriculture. With recent developments in AI techniques and large-scale computing infrastructure, the exploitation of big data further pushes forward on all fronts. This rapid advance leads to a growing demand for students who can understand and exploit AI.

Our BSc Artificial Intelligence (including foundation year) course is open to Home and EU students. It will be suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for the three-year version of this course and you want a programme that increases your subject knowledge as well as improves your English language and academic skills.

This four-year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of study. During your Year Zero, you study four academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory English language and academic skills module.

You are an Essex student from day one, a member of our global community based at the most internationally diverse campus university in the UK.

After successful completion of Year Zero in our Essex Pathways Department, you progress to complete your course with our School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering.

Our BSc Artificial Intelligence (including foundation year) course aims to prepare you for meeting this demand. You will obtain a comprehensive perspective of the current developments, the needs, and the potential of AI by learning about AI models, algorithms, and systems.

You’ll be equipped with solid knowledge of computer science and will gain a strong understanding of theoretical and practical aspects in AI. You will also gain expertise that is in huge demand within the UK industry and will be made competitive within a plethora of recruiting sectors in the country and beyond.

Throughout the course, you will study a range of topics such as:

  • Computer science
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Data science
  • Machine learning
  • Natural language processing
  • Computer vision
  • Robotics

You’ll also be able to take specialist modules to pursue your own interests and develop your knowledge in these areas. You can learn several programming languages and apply your knowledge across a range of AI applications.

Your future

The course will give you transferable skills such as the ability to develop and present arguments, as well as the ability to work independently and in groups. With a skillset that combines both technical and analytical know-how from our School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, you will be able to find employment in very competitive institutions in a wide range of disciplines.
