University of the Arts London (UK) New courses in data science and AI, creative robotics and computer science
University of the Arts London’s (UAL) Creative Computing Institute (CCI), which explores technology shaping our world and prepares a new generation of talent to shape it, is launching 6 new undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Computer Science, Data Science and AI, and Creative Robotics.
The courses are set to start in the 2023/24 academic year and mark UAL’s further expansion into STEM (science, technology, engineering and medicine) subjects.
CCI first began its programmes in September 2019 and was introduced as an institute in recognition of UAL’s view of computational practices as a key pillar of creative agency in the 21st century. From creative AI to spatial computing, the courses across the institute explore the intersection of creativity and computation.
The new courses are:
— Roni Brown, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education)
— Ben Stopher, Dean of the UAL Institute for Creative Computing
About the new courses
BSc and MSc Creative Robotics courses will be an exciting mix of robotics and creative practice, uniquely combining machine learning, physical computing and robotics with a strong emphasis on creative applications and the ethics and impact of robotics in society. The courses have been developed by Dr Vali Lalioti, Vali is a pioneering designer, computer scientist and innovator and joined CCI in 2020.
BSc and MSc Computer Science will explore web platforms, computer graphics, machine learning and AI to create models of real-world problems through computer programming.
BSc and MSc Data Science and AI will examine how this rapidly expanding discipline is shaping the world around us and investigate advanced applications of machine learning to create the next generation of AI products and services.
