This course is about biologically inspired algorithms, their relationship to living biological intelligence and the nature of consciousness itself. Some modules overlap with the main Computer Science degree, so you get the same solid grounding in the fundamentals.
You can specialise in speech recognition, language processing or robotics. We encourage you to take optional modules in psychology and philosophy to enhance your understanding.
You'll have the chance to arrange a year in industry. This will put your academic studies into context, improve your skills and enhance your employment prospects. As well as being paid a salary during your placement you will pay reduced tuition fees for that year.
In the final year, you'll undertake a piece of group research, and can also work in our student-run software company.
