Stipends available for MSc Intelligent Systems

We are pleased to announce that for eligible EU students we have obtained
funding to offer a bursary for our MSc Intelligent Systems in October 2005 of
about 8.000 EURO (about 5500 pounds) 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 October 2005.
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, fuzzy methods, and hybrid intelligent architectures.

Funding of about 5500 pounds (about 8.000 Euro) for eligible EU students.

The Bursary Scheme applies to this Masters programme commencing October 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
£ 50 per week for 45 weeks for eligible EU students, together up to about 5500
pounds or about 8000 Euro.
