We are pleased to announce that for eligible EU students we have obtained
funding to offer a bursary for our MSc Intelligent Systems February 2005
entry worth up to 9.000 EURO as fee waiver and stipend.
The School of Computing and Technology, University of Sunderland
is delighted to announce the launch of its MSc Intelligent Systems
programme for February 2005 intake. Building on the School's leading edge
research in intelligent systems this masters programme will be
funded via the ESF scheme (see below).
Intelligent Systems is an exciting field of study for science and
industry since the currently existing computing systems have
often not yet reached the various aspects of human performance.
'Intelligent Systems' is a term to describe software systems and
methods, which simulate aspects of intelligent behaviour. The intention
is to learn from nature and human performance in order to build more
powerful computing systems. The aim is to learn from cognitive science,
neuroscience, biology, engineering, and linguistics for building more
powerful computational system architectures. In this programme a
wide variety of novel and exciting techniques will be taught including
neural networks, intelligent robotics, machine learning, natural language
processing, vision, evolutionary genetic computing, data mining,
information retrieval, Bayesian computing, knowledge-based systems,
fuzzy methods, and hybrid intelligent architectures.
Funding up to 6000 pounds (about 9.000 Euro) for eligible students.
The Bursary Scheme applies to this Masters programme commencing
February 2005 and we have obtained funding through the European
Social Fund (ESF). ESF support enables the University to waive the
normal tuition fee and provide a bursary of £ 75 per week for 45 weeks
for eligible EU students, together up to 6000 pounds or about 9000 Euro.
