Subject

Artificial intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) affects our lives every day. From the viewing recommendations on Netflix to the content in our social media feeds; it's all controlled by AI. We have technologies that can recognise and classify images, chatbots that can converse in multiple languages, and systems that can diagnose disease faster and more accurately than human doctors.

Employers across the technology, healthcare, finance, transport, and security industries are desperate for skilled AI graduates, to help them gain a competitive edge through the use of this fast-emerging technology.

Our pioneering BSc Applied Artificial Intelligence programme recognises the need for skilled AI designers; the course is built around current and predicted industry requirements. It explores the complexities and potential for AI technologies and teaches the knowledge and skills needed to create innovative solutions.

In the first year, students will work in teams to develop a number of different AI solutions. They will build a biometric recognition system (eg: face or fingerprint recognition), a user profiling system (making recommendations to users or identifying potential fraud based on user data) and a system to analyse real-time data (eg: real-time traffic information).

The second-year will allow students to work in a specialised area, which could include the design of healthcare diagnostic systems, the analysis of company credit card ratings, or the development of a virtual healthcare assistant.

In the final year, students will work with an industry client and gain experience of administering AI in real-life situations.

The course will appeal to students with an interest in one or more of the following: computing, technology, engineering, mathematics, science, and design.

Artificial intelligence is a very specialist subject taken by less than 100 people a year at the moment, so there is little reliable information available on graduate prospects - bear that in mind when you review the stats above. Graduates taking this type of subject are more likely than other computing graduates to go into further research. However, if you want to find out more specifically about the potential graduate outcomes of a specific course, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates have gone on to do.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
