Learn to design and interrogate AI systems with a clear understanding of human behaviour. With the dependence on digital automation and remote working greater than ever, there is a huge demand for professionals with skills in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and User Experience (UX). We are the first UK university to offer a Master's degree bringing together AI, UX Research and Applied Psychology. As well as gaining a thorough understanding of Data and AI techniques, you'll explore theoretical concepts with practical applications. We teach you how to:
- Apply Psychology and AI principles.
- Enrich the design of AI solutions through good practice UX.
- Use Data, AI and Applied Psychology to inform the design of prototypes.
Most modules will be assessed through practice-based coursework. This includes project work and student-led presentations as well as workplace-simulation group projects. Some modules use a mixture of coursework and formal examination. AI and UX: Strongly practice-based, making use of assessment by project and professional discussions. Data science: Lab-based practicals and workplace simulation group project. Psychology modules: Assessed through project-based work, with emphasis on research design and analyses.
The taught course will be assessed using a combination of written coursework, presentations, examinations and portfolios, with a written dissertation at MSc level.
Applicants should have a minimum of a lower second-class (2:2) honours degree in either Design, Engineering, Computing, Physical, Natural, Life or Biological sciences. The course is designed for students with some experience of scripting. Applicants who did not cover the appropriate subjects during their degree will be considered if they have relevant industry experience.
