About this course

Gain the knowledge and skills to develop new, intelligent technologies. From facial recognition software to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence (AI) plays a growing role. You'll explore electronics and specialist AI topics and discover its future applications. This course will prepare you for a career in this dynamic and exciting industry.

Artificial intelligence is where electronics and computer science meet. It involves custom-designed hardware with complex algorithms and software. On this course, you’ll design computer systems that can learn from data, recognise speech and images, and solve problems. You can get practical laboratory experience by:

  • developing control algorithms for robots

  • solving real-world machine learning tasks

At Southampton, Electronics and Computer Science are in the same department, so it's easy for you to study across both disciplines.

As part of this course you can:

  • use our research facilities, including a high-voltage laboratory and our £110m interdisciplinary clean room

  • develop your enterprise skills with help from our startup supporter, Future Worlds

  • build your own unique electronic systems

You’ll learn from our AI experts, who research in fields like:

  • national security

  • forensics

  • effective disaster relief operations

This degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). It provides a route to professional registration as a Chartered Engineer.
