Artificial Intelligence

Are you an analytical thinker who enjoys working on intelligent computer systems? Would you like to know more about topics such as data mining, machine learning and information retrieval? If so, the master in Artificial Intelligence is the right choice for you. You’ll learn how to use and develop computer systems that can learn from experience, recognise patterns in vasts amounts of data and reason strategically in complex decision-making situations. The programme is very flexible, which means you can tailor it to your interests and ambitions. You’ll also have the opportunity to work on real-life cases provided by different organisations, giving you all the preparation you need to pursue a career as an artificial intelligence specialist at a research institute or company.

Starting September 2023, we offer a specialisation in Quantum Computing. Artificial Intelligence and Data Science for Decision Making will be the only master’s programmes in these fields that offer this particular specialisation in the Netherlands.

This programme is taught by the Department of Advanced Computing Sciences.
