Start your online Master in Artificial Intelligence

Society and companies are currently facing huge changes. The reason for this is the rapid advance of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Many decisions in our day-to-day lives are already supported or automatically made by AI. “Artificial Intelligence” is a term that covers two distinct areas: one is general AI, which behaves similarly to a human, and the other is narrow AI, which actually outperforms humans in specific tasks. While artificial general intelligence has yet to be developed, artificial narrow intelligence has already achieved a number of remarkable successes, e.g. in medicine and merchandise management.

The Master in Artificial Intelligence online is broad in scope and will deepen your knowledge of machine learning. The 60-ECTS variant of the study programme gives you the opportunity to acquire specific knowledge in the fields of computer-based language and image processing, smart manufacturing in Industry 4.0, or autonomous vehicles. In addition, the 120-ECTS variant offers further opportunities for specialisation.

In order to best prepare you for the international job market, all of our study programmes are offered 100% in English. What are you waiting for?

Course overview

The 60-ECTS variant is designed as a specialisation and will provide you with skills and in-depth knowledge in the fields of machine learning, neural networks, and reinforcement learning. You will concentrate primarily on the cognitive processes of computer-based language and image processing so that you will later be able to develop sophisticated AI systems and applications.

In the 120-ECTS model you will have the additional opportunity to deepen your knowledge in various practice-oriented courses and specialise, e.g. in human-machine interaction, language and image processing, Industry 4.0 and robotics, autonomous driving, or project management for AI projects.

Careers

Your Artificial Intelligence career outlook

A Master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence creates exciting career opportunities. It will enable you to develop sophisticated AI systems and applications.

Once you’ve completed your Master in Artificial Intelligence online, you could work as...

Senior AI Scientist

As a Senior AI Scientist, you are responsible for the design and development of AI-based systems such as intelligent assistance systems or automated decision systems. You also work at the interface between humans and machines at all times - a very trend-setting work environment. As a Senior AI Scientist, you also act as a mentor for juniors, lead a team, and support important decision-making processes. 

AI Team Lead

As AI Team Lead, you have deep-level know-how: you are entrusted with building up a team of senior and junior AI specialists and take over important hiring and personnel decisions. As a Team Lead, you keep an eye on all projects and make sure that results are delivered in a high-quality and timely manner. You also communicate with internal and external stakeholders and advise on new developments. 

AI Interaction Designer

Combining human and artificial intelligence is one of the biggest challenges when it comes to designing our workplace of the future. Alongside the opportunities to bring valuable AI services to a wide range of products come challenges and questions about best practices and guidelines for user-friendly design. As an AI Interaction Designer, your main responsibility is to design the work environment so that humans and machines can work together in a meaningful way.
