Artificial intelligence (AI) has arrived, but are you ready for it? As AI shifts from the lab to the workplace and into our homes, it is having an increasingly profound impact on the world around us.

On our innovative Computer Science with Artificial Intelligence degree you venture into one of the most exciting fields of technological development of our times placing you at the forefront of the accelerating artificial-intelligence race.

Artificial intelligence is the attempt to build artificial systems that have intelligent behaviour. Applications of AI range from ‘smart’ controllers for household devices to computers that can converse in English, play games, conduct intelligent web searches or act as the brain of a robot.

Your overarching goal on our three-year programme is to develop the skills to implement solutions to complex problems. You do this by learning the fundamentals of computer science juxtaposed with a broad range of AI techniques, including neural networks and evolutionary algorithms.

The course draws on the fields of law, philosophy and psychology to deliver a truly interdisciplinary experience. You benefit from a team of experts in these fields as well as from specialists in Digital Media (Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality). In addition, you reap the rewards of ongoing research and knowledge exchange activities in AI, law, ethics and big data at the Centre for Information Rights (CIR).

As well as fundamental computer science classes and laboratory work, you cover topics such as expert systems, intelligent agents, the history and philosophy of artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, heuristic optimisation and other intelligent systems.

You will enhance your knowledge of various computing disciplines and skills including software development, database analysis, AI programming, machine learning and data structures. And you will have access to specialist facilities including well-equipped labs containing Linux and Microsoft platforms.

In Year 1, you are introduced to the key concepts and tools underpinning modern computer science with artificial intelligence. You learn how to program in Java, study the architecture and applications of computer systems and explore areas of AI. You also take an Introduction to Academic Studies module while developing your personal and professional skills.

This course shares a common first year with our Computer Science degree, giving you the flexibility to switch easily between courses if you choose.

In Year 2 you explore the latest developments in AI and programming together with modules in related topics such as cyber security. Other optional modules may include Servers, Data Centres and Smart Systems, and Software Testing.

An optional placement year gives you the opportunity to enhance your employability, business understanding and professional skills.

In Year 3 you develop an appreciation of the legal, ethical and regulatory frameworks together with the human aspects of information security assurance and forensic investigation. There are modules on Advanced Software Development and Machine Learning and Robotics. The Dissertation module helps you to develop specialist skills and expertise through the undertaking of a substantial body of work. You learn how to successfully present your evidence in written format and orally. Optional modules in your final year may include Distributed Systems, Cloud Computing Infrastructures, and Information Futures.

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?
