Why Study Applied Artificial Intelligence and User Experience?

Learn to design and interrogate AI systems with a clear understanding of human behaviour. With the dependence on digital automation and remote working greater than ever, there is a huge demand for professionals with skills in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and User Experience (UX).

We are the first UK university to offer a Master's degree bringing together AI, UX Research and Applied Psychology. As well as gaining a thorough understanding of Data and AI techniques, you'll explore theoretical concepts with practical applications.

We teach you how to:

  • Apply Psychology and AI principles.
  • Enrich the design of AI solutions through good practice UX.
  • Use Data, AI and Applied Psychology to inform the design of prototypes.

Using data and AI to acquire deeper insights into human behaviour and psychology, you'll also focus on the ethical responsibilities of developing AI applications.

This course has a practical focus, and features projects and group work as well as work placements where possible.

When you graduate, you’ll have a solid grounding in Data and AI techniques along with specialist knowledge and skills in Psychology and UX. Our aim is to create the next generation of AI talent, who recognise the role of human behaviour in technology use. Both the UK and Scottish Governments have urgently called for an increase in Data and AI skills, and the need for talented AI professionals at all levels is growing every year. 

To apply you’ll need scripting expertise and an undergraduate degree in Engineering, Computing, Game Design and Development, Physical, Natural, Life or Biological sciences.

Don't forget to check the Scholarships section below. The Data Lab, Scotland's Innovation Centre for Data and AI, have five full-time scholarships covering the course fees for this MSc for 2021-22.

Entry Requirements

Applicants should have a minimum of a lower second-class (2:2) honours degree in either Design, Engineering, Computing, Physical, Natural, Life or Biological sciences. The course is designed for students with some experience of scripting.

Applicants who did not cover the appropriate subjects during their degree will be considered if they have relevant industry experience.

We accept a wide range of qualifications from applicants from across the world. Please select the country of your qualification from the searchable list below to view entry requirements. If you have different qualifications to those listed, please contact us using the form below.

How the Course Works

Full-time on campus students will complete the degree in one year: The academic year consists of three terms with the Master's project module completed in term 3.

Part-time on campus students will complete the degree in two years: Year 1 consist of two terms, and Year 2 of three terms with the Master's project module completed in the final term.

The Master’s project is an independent research project under guidance of supervisors.

Learning

Most modules will be assessed through practice-based coursework. This includes project work and student-led presentations as well as workplace-simulation group projects. Some modules use a mixture of coursework and formal examination.

Learning and assessment by theme

AI and UX: Strongly practice-based, making use of assessment by project and professional discussions.

Data science: Lab-based practicals and workplace simulation group project.

Psychology modules: Assessed through project-based work, with emphasis on research design and analyses.

Lectures may be used to present key concepts, theories and techniques. Tutorials and laboratory-based activities increase your understanding of the subject and develop your competence and confidence in technological and theoretical work.

Throughout your course, you’ll be required to actively participate in group work, discussions, seminars, and private study.

Assessment

The taught course will be assessed using a combination of written coursework, presentations, examinations and portfolios, with a written dissertation at MSc level.

Modules (Subject to change)

Introduction to Data Science (MAT510)

An introduction to data science and the typical data life cycle. You will gain the fundamental understanding and knowledge of the tools underpinning data science in light of rapid technological changes. Discover real-world problems and challenges involving the use of data in industry, science, and the public sector.

User Experience Research (CMP513)

We will give you the knowledge and skills to investigate UX in the context of human-centred data science. You will design a data-driven experiment to investigate human behaviours and understand the process of selecting and capturing pertinent data to answer specific questions.

Human Psychology: In what ways are we all the same (PSY555)

Learn how psychology works as a science and participate in experiments that deepen your understanding. You will develop a critical understanding of the major topics, empirical research, theoretical and formal approaches in human psychology and how these apply to the development of AI.

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (CMP511)

Gain AI specialist knowledge and skills so you can develop user-facing solutions that demonstrate your understanding of human behaviours. You will develop a user-facing AI solution, by evaluating and selecting the optimal ML/AI technique.

Applied Analytics Case Studies (CMP512)

This helps to consolidate your knowledge of applied analytics so you can analyse human behaviours and UX, based on case studies. These case studies will highlight the limitations of the state of the art, or novel use of the latest theories and technologies.

Human Psychology: Why are we different (PS567)

You will gain a critical and comprehensive understanding of the main factors that create diversity in human behaviour and how this diversity is studied. This includes evaluating the main theoretical approaches to human development and individual differences. Assess how biology and the environment shape the development of human behaviour.

Masters Project (1) (CMP504)

Select, plan, conduct and write up a research-based investigation for the Masters Project. The project will include the selection of appropriate research and experimental methods, the collection and analysis of data/information and the evaluation and communication of findings. The result is a solution appropriate to the project aims and a dissertation.
