Background: Intelligent systems and robots are expected to become an integral part of our daily lives. In order to be accepted by humans, intelligent systems have to adapt to changing environments as well as the users they interact with. Intelligent systems are not only expected to automatically acquire and manage knowledge through a variety of sensors but also to learn and optimise their behaviour over time. This International Master’s programme aims to provide students with the ability to build these intelligent adaptive systems and to prepare the students for a future market, where intelligent behaviour is considered the standard for computer systems.

Research-oriented, 2-year programme (4 semesters): The Master in Intelligent Adaptive Systems is a 2-year research-oriented programme that is taught in English. Students, both national and international, can benefit from an international environment and improve their grasp of the English language and knowledge on cultural differences. The selected modules provide a comprehensive overview including technical aspects and state-of-the art algorithms and methods. Students are introduced to current research in the corresponding fields and have the opportunity to deepen the acquired knowledge by participating in international research projects.

Curriculum: The Master’s programme is comprised of 120 credit points that are distributed between compulsory core lectures, selectable focus lectures, and project work: Core lectures include Software Architecture, Bio-Inspired AI, Intelligent Robotics, Neural Networks, Databases and Information Systems, Algorithmic Learning, Research Methods. 18 CP points can be chosen from focus modules (including natural language processing, image processing, robot technology, security and communication, and complex systems). Students can also choose 12 CP from other modules to extend their studies or deepen their knowledge in selected areas.

Application Requirements: We aim at offering the courses to a wide range of students. Applicants should have a strong background in computer science or a related field since programming and mathematical knowledge is assumed. In order to apply to the Master in Intelligent Adaptive Systems, you have to fulfil the following requirements:

a) A Bachelor degree in computer science or a related field insofar as 60 ECTS credit points were acquired in the field of computer science b) Proof of English language proficiency by (or comparable to): - CEFR/TELC Level C1 - IELTS 6.5 - TOEFL (IBT 100, PBT 575, CBT 220) - Cambridge CAE or CPE Next to these requirements, students have to provide a 2-page letter of motivation and a CV. More detailed information on application requirements and procedure can be found in the website http://www.master-intelligent-adaptive-systems.com
