More information



Due to the increasing impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on society, we have seen a growing interest in this subject. We have seen a growth in the application of artificial intelligence in the last few years, with an anticipation that AI will continue to change how we work and live long into the future.

The course not only aims to give you a comprehensive understanding of artificial intelligence, but also how such approaches influence the humans who develop and use them.
Course content explores two key course themes; the fundamental and advanced theory and practice of AI, and how human factors influence and relate to AI. Content covers fundamental advanced concepts of AI such as Soft Computing Based Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent Decision Making, Neural Network Systems, and Security of Emerging Connected Systems.
You will have the opportunity to learn the practical skills of programming using diverse AI programming languages, the use of a spectrum of tools and techniques, as well as the theoretical foundations of AI and human factors.
You will be given the opportunity to study various modules related to human factors for AI including Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV), Project Management in Engineering Organization and Human Factors in Safety Management. The area of human factors and AI is not typically considered in many postgraduate courses focused on AI to date.

Programme structure

AI is the study of the theory and development of computer systems that can perform tasks one would consider as human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. AI is a broad multidisciplinary field encompassing everything from understanding how people respond to AI to creating and using complex algorithms that mimic how the brain works. It involves many branches of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

This course includes a complementary suite of modules related to AI and human factors which aim to provide you with a significant theoretical and practical understanding of AI and the human factors that influence AI, so you can develop AI systems that solve real-world problems.
