The School of Physics and Astronomy has proudly launched a new masters course – MSc Machine Learning in Science.
The one-year, full-time course will use the extensive expertise from across several schools in the Faculty of Science including School of Physics and Astronomy, School of Computer Science, School of Mathematical Sciences, School of Psychology and School of Chemistry. The interdisciplinary nature of the course means it is a perfect fit for graduates from a variety of academic backgrounds (physical sciences, mathematics, computer science and engineering) who have an interest in machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI).
In the last few years the development and use of machine learning and AI have revolutionised areas such as computer vision, speech recognition and natural language processing, transforming them from almost intractable problems into useful aspects of our everyday lives.
The interplay between AI and scientific thinking is central to the spirit of this course. It will provide students with high quality training, covering the basic theory of machine learning with particular emphasis on the application to concrete science problems in the form of research projects.
Both research and industry need graduates with expertise in applying machine learning and AI techniques. Our course will provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to make an impact in whichever career they choose.
