Gartner included AI in its top strategic technology trends for 2021. Similarly, PWC estimates that AI could deliver a 10% increase in UK GDP by 2030. Also, the UK’s National AI Strategy is set to support jobs and economic growth through significant investment in AI infrastructure, skills and innovation. Indeed, the UK AI Council has published AI roadmap and recommended UK government to scale up and commit to AI skill building programme to address skills shortages of AI professionals.
The BSc (Hons) Computing with AI Technology will provide you with a recognised undergraduate qualification which combines a wide range of computing subject areas with Artificial Intelligence Technology.
It is also attractive to learners who have related IT work experience but do not hold a first degree as they provide an opportunity to achieve an academic qualification in a subject area in which they are familiar. Indeed, there is a need in the market for those with such qualifications and the programme can prepare you for a range of careers in artificial intelligence, including machine learning on cloud and programming for AI applications.
To accelerate your learning, you will be exposed to theories and principles relating to the design, development and testing of software using AI. You will be exposed to the in-depth concepts, principles, technologies, and techniques to train and deploy distributed machine learning models using cloud-based platforms such as Google Cloud or AWS. You will subsequently be able to apply this knowledge and skill in your own context, and subsequently critically analyse the implementation and recommend potential future improvements.
You will additionally develop understanding of the typology of innovation, how firms leverage internal and external resources to compete in the digital environment, and how to plan for innovation in any organisation.
After graduating from this programme, you will be equipped to work in a variety of careers in the IT industry, or to progress to academic or research-orientated careers.
The programme will develop your skills and competencies for careers in a range of job roles, such as:
