Technology Studies

An MSc, or Master of Science, is an academic distinction bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in what is often a science-based discipline. The MSc often enhances career opportunities as well as earning potential.

Technology is broadly defined as a collection of processes which are used to create goods or services. Technology therefore refers to the knowledge of such processes, or the processes themselves, which are often embedded into machines or devices.

The Netherlands is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, consisting of twelve provinces in North-West Europe and three islands in the Caribbean. English speaking students will have no problems finding suitable courses. For international students applying to universities in the Netherlands, several scholarships are available.

What is intelligent behaviour? How can computers recognize faces and objects? In this programme, you will learn how to design and implement intelligent systems.

The Master in Artificial Intelligence revolves around three core topics: autonomous perceptive systems, cognitive robotics and multi-agent systems.

Autonomous Systems

A robot taking samples and collecting information on the moon is an example of an autonomous system. It operates and carries out missions independently. Regardless of its surroundings, it responds with a certain intelligence. While traditional AI focuses on cognition and reasoning as isolated abilities, we strongly believe in perception as an active behaviour, which is integrated into general cognition.... [-]

MSc Artificial Intelligence

What is intelligent behaviour? How can robots communicate with each other? How to design a system that negotiates? In this programme, you will learn how to design and implement intelligent systems. Humans and animals are important sources of inspiration in this area.

The Master’s programme Artificial Intelligence (AI) focuses on the development of intelligent systems. The core topics in this master are autonomous perceptive systems, cognitive robotics and multi-agent systems.

Systems that can operate and carry out missions independently

Autonomous systems are systems that can operate and carry out missions independently, for example, robots driving around on the moon taking samples and collecting information. Even in unpredictable surroundings these robots respond with a certain intelligence and take decisions about what to do. At the University of Groningen, we concentrate on autonomous perceptive systems, i.e. robots that can find and read a sign in an unknown environment or systems that detect verbal aggression from the complex sounds of busy streets. While traditional AI focuses on cognition and reasoning as isolated abilities, we strongly believe in perception as an active behaviour which is seamlessly integrated into general cognition.... [-]
