Program Description

MSc in Artificial Intelligence

Radboud University

Introduction In the Master’s programme Artificial Intelligence (AI) you will learn how to advance the study of brain and cognition by adopting typical AI tools, such as computer simulation, brain-computer interfacing and robotic design.

Programme

Depending on your interest, you can specialise in one of the following domains: Interactive Agents and Neural Computing.

Unique character

This programme has a unique character, focusing on connections between artificial intelligence and cognitive neuroscience. Understanding how the brain works and how it supports intelligent cognitive behaviour is essential for effective agent design. In turn, agent design can lead to hypotheses about how intelligent behaviour is realised by humans.

Top facilities

The programme is closely related to the research carried out by the internationally renowned Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. This institute has several unique facilities for brain imaging using EEG, fMRI and MEG. You will be able to use these facilities for developing new experimental research techniques, as well as for developing new machine learning algorithms to analyse the brain data and integrate them with brain-computer interfacing systems. You will also cooperate with the Behavioural Science Institute and work in its Virtual Reality Laboratory, which can be used to study the social interaction between humans and avatars.

Career prospects

Many of our graduates go on to do a PhD either in the Netherlands or abroad. Other graduates work for companies interested in cognitive design and research.

Admission requirements

As an international student, your prior education must meet certain requirements.

1. A completed Bachelor's degree in Artificial Intelligence or a related programme with a comparable content that sufficiently prepares for an advanced master program in AI. An acceptable applicant should have some knowledge of Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence techniques, Mathematics, and some Cognitive Science.

2. Students with an international Bachelor’s degree will be asked to upload these documents as part of the admission processes.

3. Proficiency in English

In order to take part in this programme, you need to have fluency in both written and spoken English. Non-native speakers of English* without a Dutch Bachelor's degree or VWO diploma need one of the following:
