Course Description

Our computer science with artificial intelligence course is designed to develop both your general understanding of computer science and more specialist skills and knowledge in artificial intelligence (AI).

In addition to fundamental computer science classes and laboratories, the course covers topics including expert systems, intelligent agents, the history and philosophy of artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, neural networks, heuristic optimisation and other intelligent systems. By following this programme you will learn how to develop new methodologies and novel computational techniques for the creation of human-like intelligence.

This course consists of spending your final year in the UK where you will study advanced AI techniques with specialist staff. For the first two years of this three-year degree you will be taught at the Malaysia Campus. You will then transfer to The University of Nottingham in the UK for the final year of your studies where you will be able to take a variety of specialist courses that are supported by the world-leading research that is undertaken within the school.

Professional accreditation

Our BSc in Computer Science with Artificial Intelligence is accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS). This is an external recognition of the excellence of our teaching, and it is also a recognition that the skills that you learn while studying the degree are of relevance to industry. Graduates from this degree may join the BCS, and with typically five years of industry experience, graduates may achieve UK chartered engineer (CEng) status.

Career Prospects

While many computer science graduates do become programmers, others are employed in a wide variety of jobs. These include computer analysts, IT consultants and planners, network/systems designers and engineers, researchers, software designers and engineers, web designers, web developers and producers as well as roles across advertising and marketing, business and financial analysis, accountancy and investment/merchant banking and legal and quality assurance professions. Some of our graduates have gone on to work for traditional computer companies such as Adobe, Google, Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Microsoft. Others have found jobs with employers such as Accenture, Experian, and Ocado.

New computer science graduates frequently command some of the highest-paid entry-level positions compared to graduates in other disciplines. Many of our graduates continue to further studies in subjects such as machine learning, e-commerce, information security and psychology. The School has a good record for recruiting PhD students from our own graduates and our MSc degrees prove an attractive option.

All fees are in RM (Ringgit Malaysia) currency unless stated otherwise.
