This online part-time MSc in Artificial Intelligence at UL is an exciting programme that will provide you with robust knowledge and skills in the application of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

Hear from Dr. Pepijn van de Ven, Senior Lecturer at University of Limerick and Course Director for our industry-driven programme. Pep talks about about the introduction of our new NLP stream which commenced in September 2022 and a planned Machine Vision stream for September 2023. He also discusses the success of this Masters program in artificial intelligence over the past year and the feedback we are receiving from students taking the course.

The MSc program in artificial intelligence spans two years, encompassing five teaching semesters and one research project semester. A Certificate in Artificial Intelligence, awarded at level 8 of the National Framework of Qualifications upon completion of the first semester, distinguishes this program.

What sets this program apart is its unique approach to curriculum development. Each module within this program was exclusively designed, ensuring relevance to industry needs. ICT Skillnet and our industry board contributed significantly to ensure the content aligns with industry demands. Emphasizing online delivery, the pedagogical approach revolves around structured “E-tivities.”

These activities enable self-driven exploration of pertinent subjects, supported by module leaders and moderators who guide students in smaller groups. This learning method has proven highly effective and efficient, an experience echoed in the program’s success.
