Program Description

Master in Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics (MSc)

University of Birmingham - College of Life and Environmental Sciences

Why study this course

This course is highly interdisciplinary encompassing psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, computational modelling, neuroimaging, robotics, and patient rehabilitation. The course is designed for those who are interested in applying knowledge of neural systems, brain function, and modelling to research in human cognition, perception, sensory and motor systems as well as the design of bio-inspired and biologically plausible robotic systems.

It has a strong research focus with hands-on modules and practical applications. The course is aimed at both students from psychology/neuroscience with a strong quantitative background and at students from computer science and physics that want to apply their knowledge to neuroscience.

Employability

You will receive training in computational and research methods and will gain an overview of current research in neuroscience and robotics.The programme will prepare you to go onto high-quality PhD programmes, leading to work in a range of fields from advanced robotics to cognitive neuroscience.

Several of our students receive PhD offers before completing the course. It is an opportunity for you to showcase your talent in the School of Psychology and the School of Computer Science, and to increase your chances of pursuing an academic career within the University of Birmingham. It is expected that more PhD positions will become available in relation to research projects within the CNCR Centre, as its members have been extremely successful in securing research funds in the last few years.
