Overview

The Master of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will provide graduates with a foundation in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and allow for the identification and application of emerging developments and considerations. Both Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are rapidly evolving spaces with implications for the future of work and our daily lives.

In this program, students undertake a variety of core and elective courses, designed to provide knowledge of the techniques and theory of artificial intelligence and machine learning, and their basis in computer science and mathematics. A significant capstone project combines skills developed across the program. Students will elect to undertake either a research project or an industry-based project.

The Master of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is an AQF Level 9 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 2 years.

Program Learning Outcome
