The study load of the master program AI&ES is 120 EC. The curriculum is composed of:
- core courses (worth 30 EC)
- track-related courses (worth 90 EC), including:
- interdisciplinary team project (worth 10EC)
- specialization courses (worth 20 EC)
- free elective courses (worth 15 EC)
- graduation project (worth 45 EC)
The core courses are designed to cover six relevant core topics for AI&ES engineers: data science, human interaction and ethics, programming, mathematics, learning in AI, and engineering systems.
Students of the master program AI&ES choose a specialization track in the first quarter of the program. The following tracks are offered:
- Track 1. High-tech systems and robotics
- Track 2. Mobility
- Track 3. Healthcare
- Track 4. Smart cities
- Track 5. Science and Discovery
- Track 6. Manufacturing systems
The interdisciplinary team project is a challenge-based and interdisciplinary project. Students work in small teams on realistic and open-ended problems connected to industrial applications. The final product of the team project is either a design, demonstrator, prototype, or a simulated scenario.
The specialization courses bridge Artificial Intelligence and Engineering Systems. The specialization courses aim to cover four general areas of interest, namely domain-specific knowledge, AI in engineered systems, data cultivation, and learning and intelligence.
Choose elective courses from the wide range of courses that are on offer within TU/e. Elective courses may also be selected from other universities.
The AI&ES graduation project is an individual research project on a topic related to artificial intelligence in the context of engineering systems.
