The University of Aberdeen is offering eight scholarships on its MSc Artificial Intelligence programme, worth £6,700 each.
The scholarships will cover the cost of tuition for Scottish and EU students for the degree programme starting in September. They are funded by The Data Lab, a Scottish innovation centre, as well as the Scottish Funding Council and the European Social Fund.
While AI is a broad field, the degree aims to familiarise students with those technologies most sought after in business, covering areas such as:
- Big data Analytics
- Data science
- Machine learning
- AI for decision support
- Natural Language Processing
The degree was designed with input from an advisory board including companies such as Intelligent Plant, Arria NLG and public sector bodies including Aberdeen City Council.
Students on the programme will be taught using a mix of coursework and individual/group projects, solving real-world problems relevant to businesses and companies/organisations.
Dr Wei Pang, Programme Coordinator, said: “Since its launch in 2017, our MSc Artificial Intelligence programme has gone from strength to strength.
“Artificial Intelligence is an ever-growing area, but there remains a skills shortage in the field which means that graduates are highly sought after.
“Our programme provides companies with a fresh pool of talent, allowing them to shape their workforce in preparation for the next digital revolution.
“Our close partnership with The Data Lab and our industrial advisory board ensures that this degree is directly relevant to the industry, and is already unlocking a new stream of talent in the north-east. I would encourage those interested in the programme to apply.”
