The curriculum of the master program Artificial Intelligence and Robotics is a modularised study program. Students will learn about problem-solving, decision-making, and knowledge representation in AI, as well as the design and implementation of algorithms for autonomous robot navigation. They will study neural networks, training algorithms, optimization techniques, and applications in computer vision and natural language processing. Students will also learn about data analysis, statistical methods, data visualization, and data mining techniques. Through practical assignments and projects, they will gain hands-on experience in designing and implementing algorithms and systems in these fields.

The unique highlight is the learning in transformation project, an interdisciplinary scientific research project that focuses on practical learning experiences. The project aims to provide students with a scientific-based approach to solving real-world problems.
