All courses are taught by researchers. This ensures that you receive an advanced academic level of education and integration of the latest developments in the field. The majority of lecturers are also involved in collaborative projects with industry players which means that you benefit from in-depth knowledge of applications in real-world situations. Lecturers also play an active role in teaching and presenting their research at international conferences. Therefore, students are exposed to solid, state-of-the-art course material.
The Master's programme in Artificial Intelligence will have a student population of approximately 75 students each year, with many nationalities and backgrounds. Courses take place in small groups which leads to an informal teaching environment. As a graduate student you are encouraged to regularly present and discuss your work, to optimally learn from the staff and your fellow students.
The joint Master's programme in Artificial Intelligence is strongly connected to research topics of the informatics research institutes of the UvA and the VU.
