Master of Science
Investigating the true nature of intelligence is one of today's most fascinating research avenues. Advances in the study of cognitive processes and models, natural language and perception, human knowledge, representation, and reasoning attest to this.
Relatedly, one of the scientific community's key research objectives is the development of an intelligent robot, that is, a robot that can perceive and communicate using natural language, collect information using vision, sensors, and movement, plan ahead, act based on this information, assimilate new knowledge from experience and interaction with its environment and, in general, perform tasks considered typical for intelligent human beings.
The Master of Artificial Intelligence programme at KU Leuven explores and builds on these fascinating challenges. For many years, it has provided an internationally acclaimed advanced study programme in artificial intelligence. The multidisciplinary programme trains students from a variety of backgrounds - including engineering, sciences, economics, management, psychology, and linguistics - in all areas of knowledge-based technology, cognitive science, and their applications. The one-year programme, taught entirely in English, is the result of a collaboration between many internationally prominent research units from seven different faculties of the university.
This is an advanced Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.
International Student Requirements:
For students with the following prior degrees, the admission requirement is reduced to proficiency in English: Master of Science (in Engineering) in Computer Science, Master of Science (in Engineering) in Informatics, Master of Science (in Engineering) in Information and Communication Technology, Master of Arts (specialisation in Linguistics).
Apart from these groups, specific selection criteria that are used for the selection of students are: we require at least a 4-year university (or equivalent) degree, experience with computing, proficiency in English, and good study results on the basis of transcripts.
