How can you develop an autonomous car? How does a computer recognize speech or emotions? How can software and devices be aligned to the way humans think?

In the international Bachelor's degree program in Artificial Intelligence, you will study intelligence and develop 'intelligent' and user-friendly products.

This international degree program focuses on human thinking, artificial thinking (computers, robots), and behavior in social systems (e.g. group behavior). You will study the underlying processes in order to predict or simulate behavior.

Interdisciplinary curriculum

Artificial Intelligence draws on knowledge from various disciplines, such as cognitive psychology, linguistics, data science, computing science, logic, and philosophy. You will develop skills in these areas in the first year, after which you deepen your knowledge in the subdiscipline you prefer, such as machine learning, robotics, or cognitive science.

Translating knowledge into practical applications

There are many applications in which intelligence and usable technology are indispensable, in ticket machines for example. This degree program, therefore, has a strong practical orientation.

Please note: AI has a fixed quota (numerus fixus), for which a selection procedure takes place.

Our Bachelor's degree program in Artificial Intelligence is connected to the Bernoulli Institute.

The mission of the Bernoulli Institute is to perform outstanding academic research and teaching in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Artificial Intelligence, and to maintain international leadership herein; to foster these disciplines as a living body of knowledge, and to make it relevant to society in its broadest sense.

The symbiosis between pure and applied science, and between mono- and multidisciplinary research and teaching, is a distinguishing characteristic of our institute. As an important part of this mission, we aim to transfer our results to other areas of science and technology and initiate and expand inter-and multi-disciplinary research collaborations.

The following research groups within the Bernoulli institute focus on Artificial Intelligence:

  • Autonomous Perceptive Systems
  • Cognitive Modeling
  • Multi-Agent Systems
