More information


The Artificial Intelligence Master's programme at Radboud University has a distinctly cognitive focus where computational modelling is the central methodology used to understand naturally intelligent systems, build artificially intelligent systems and improve the interactions between natural and artificial systems. Students can choose one of two specialisations: Cognitive Computing or Intelligent Technology.



Cognitive Computing
How does it actually work to perceive, to act, to decide and to remember? Learn how to create artificial information systems that mimic biological systems as well as how to use theoretical insights from AI to better understand cognitive processing in humans.



Intelligent Technology
How can an understanding of language and communication be used to improve the interactions between intelligent technology? Developing intelligent machines and new ways for humans and machines to interact, as well as understanding cognition through human behavior.



Admission requirements
Radboud University does not offer a pre-master’s programme in Artificial Intelligence. In order to get admission to this Master's you will need a completed academic bachelor’s degree in Artificial Intelligence or an academic degree with a comparable background in programming, mathematics, and introductory AI. 



Career prospects

Our Artificial Intelligence graduates have excellent job prospects and are often offered a job before they have actually graduated. Many of our graduates go on to do a PhD either at a major research institute or university with an AI department. Other graduates work for companies interested in cognitive design and research. Examples of companies looking for AI experts with this specialisation: Google, Facebook, IBM, Philips and the Brain Foundation. Some students have even gone on to start their own companies or joined recent startups.
