Within the Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence programme offered at Tilburg University you focus on artificial intelligence, human cognition and technological innovation. Can computers interpret human emotions in a reliable way? How does our brain process all the impulses which it receives and how does it respond to virtual and augmented reality? How does communication between humans and robots work? And what forms of artificial intelligence can we expect in the (near) future?
- In the first year you take introductory courses in the fields of artificial intelligence and human cognition. Besides that you develop basic programming skills.
- In the second year you deepen your knowledge. You apply your skills and knowledge within themes such as Human Computer Interaction and Cognitive Robotics. You will gain experience with conducting research (for example in our own Virtual and Augmented Reality Lab).
- In the third year, you take the last specialization courses (for example: Introduction to Machine Learning and Advanced Programming). You will also do a minor in which you can choose between gaining in-depth knowledge within your program or broadening your perspective by taking courses of another discipline at Tilburg University, a different university in the Netherlands or even abroad. You will finish your studies with a Bachelor’s Thesis.
Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence prepares you for a successful career in business, consultancy or science. Developments in this field are extremely rapid, and well-trained specialists are in great demand. You can, for example, become a web analyst, social media analyst, data journalist, intelligent software developer, social robot developer or technology consultant.
