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.

Master’s programme in Artificial Intelligence

The Master of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a two-year advanced programme organized by the Department of Knowledge Engineering. The focus of this programme is on the understanding, design and creation of intelligent systems in both software (e.g., computer games) and hardware (e.g., robotics). The term “Artificial Intelligence” dates back to 1956 when John McCarthy defined it as “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines”. Even though nowadays we are still far from building machines that can pass the famous Turing test (A. Turing, Mind, 59 (236), 1950 - a test to determine whether a machine shows human intelligence), Artificial Intelligence has become a very active domain in both academia and industry. It has achieved to build computer programmes and robots that learn from experience, recognize patterns in vast amounts of data, and reason strategically in complex decision-making situations. Artificial Intelligence is, therefore, an interdisciplinary field where domains such as Computer Science, Mathematics, Psychology, Biology, Philosophy and Economics meet.... [-]
