Structured around the work commitments and priorities of working professionals, the London Metropolitan University’s MSc in Artificial Intelligence comprises of 6 modules plus an MSc Project (Academic Dissertation).

This 1-year (part-time) Msc Artificial Intelligence is designed to provide a competitive edge with strong emphasis for a professional qualification in related areas, such as big data management, data analytics and cyber security. 


This module introduces the essential principles, methods and techniques in AI. It covers a broad range of topics such as search, planning, logic, knowledge representation and machine learning.

This module provides students with an in-depth appreciation of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud Computing concepts, models, infrastructures and capabilities. The module will place emphasis on modern system architecture and design, Autonomous Intelligent Systems (AIS), key wireless/mobile/sensor technologies, and issues of privacy and trust, in the development of Cloud-based IoT systems. 

The module aims to strengthen students’ skills in data technologies ranging from database and data warehousing to Big Data. The module introduces also the foundation of Big data management based on Apache Hadoop platform and provides students with a broad introduction to Big Data technologies.

The module is concerned with the study and application of tools and techniques that enable the protection of information and other resources of enterprise information systems. The focus will also be on the analysis, design and implementation of tools and techniques that achieve the three goals of confidentiality, integrity and authenticity in security computing.

This module provides a comprehensive overview of the methods for machine learning and data analytics suitable for use in the data analysis and Big Data Analytics. It also provides practical skills for working with various tools for data analysis and Big Data Analytics inside and outside the platform such as Python.

This module provides the theoretical foundations, the technologies and the corresponding tools for constructing intelligent model-driven software systems with explicit representation of knowledge. 

The module provides students with the experience of planning and bringing to fruition a major piece of individual work. Also, the module aims to encourage and reward individual inventiveness and application of effort through working on research or company/local government projects.


You’ll be assessed with essays, practical reports, presentations, end-of-module examinations and an extended thesis.
