How You Study

Students on this course study core modules in the areas of Advanced Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, Frontiers of Machine Learning and Computer Vision Research, Machine Learning, and Neural Computing.

Students also undertake a Research Methods module designed to cover the fundamental skills and background knowledge that students may need to undertake research in this area. Students then have the opportunity to undertake a substantial research project focusing on an area of particular personal and professional interest, through the development of a dissertation and substantive software implementation.

Contact Hours and Independent Study

The postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class students are expected to spend at least two-three hours in an independent study. For more detailed information please contact the programme leader.

How You Are Assessed

The programme may be assessed through a variety of means, including in-class tests, coursework, projects and examinations.

The final stage research project provides the opportunity to specialise and to complete a piece of work of significant complexity.

Assessment Feedback

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to you promptly – usually within 15 working days after the submission date.
